where did that squishy newborn go?

When Audrey was just seven days old, I had a friend- a fellow ‘Burgh Mom‘, in fact- come and take photos of our newborn baby girl. And also of her big sister, because OMG THE CUTE!

Irene was amazing. Not only did she take fantastic pictures of our girls, but she was so so patient during the shoot. I had to keep stopping to nurse Audrey every 20 minutes, it seemed. And she didn’t even blink an eye when the baby pooped all over the blanket while she was holding her. Obviously she’s more professional than I would be ;)

We didn’t get newborn pictures taken when Maggie was born. The first formal portraits of her are at three months old- MUCH different than these early, squishy, floppy, sleepy baby shots. I have a few regrets over not having those, which is why I’m so happy to have them now. Was it a bit extravagant and a splurge? Yeah.

But it was worth every penny.

    Those pictures are absolutely precious! Maybe I should have a professional take pictures of my kids, because I can never keep them together and happy long enough to get one.

    Wow. That was a kick to the ovaries! Those are gorgeous, amazing photographs… of course the subjects are naturally adorable, which helps I’m sure. :)

  9. Don’t they grow so quickly? It drives me a little batty! Or maybe a lot batty! Either way, it is WAY TOO FAST for me. Your babies are precious!
