I really can’t get enough of these sweet newborns. While I used to get a tiny bit nervous before someone showed up with their brand new baby, I now get ridiculously excited. I think with newborns it seems especially rewarding, since it is challenging to get them not only asleep, but comfortable looking, every finger in place, little scowls relaxed and no parts showing that shouldn’t be…..:) They really are a lot of work, but it is so exciting to get them in that perfect position and have them sleep away while parents silently cheer in the background that their baby is fully cooperating. The funny thing is that most people say, “all those babies are so cute on your blog, there’s no way he’ll let you stuff him into a bucket like that…..” and then a few weeks later, that baby is one of “those babies on the blog”. Why am I rambling? I must be suffering the effects of going one week straight with not one milk chocolate mini egg. Mmmm. Cadbury mini eggs.
A few years ago I met this very sweet family when they brought their first newborn girl Alexis in to be photographed, and now they’ve added tiny Sophie. I could have kept her, I really could have. She was so itty bitty and very cuddly with me, I soaked up every moment.
haha oh my gosh, so in the middle of posting these pictures, I drove to Albertsons (or whatever the new name is now) and bought a bag of mini eggs. Nothing else. While everyone in my house is sleeping. I snuck out and bought something I’m trying so hard not to eat. I really hate this one track mind sometimes. But then I thought Easter is going to be over next week and they’ll be gone. For a whole year. So I panicked, and now I’m eating them. DANG IT.
