Nate's Newborn Photoshoot:)

Andrea came over Wednesday afternoon to capture some of Nate's newborness before it quickly passes :(

She had first hand experience with how sleepy and "easy" he usually is (I'm writing this late and he's fussing right now... yes, Andrea it does happen!!) I'm really starting to understand why Nate was soo "quiet" in my belly and thinking it really does have something to do with his personality....

seriously, if he's warm, fed and comfortable... he's good! He's been such an "easy" baby... I mean, I still need to feed him 8+ times every 24 hours. And we need to keep him in clean clothes, bathe him and burp him. He's the pee-pee and stinky king... his diaper is ALWAYS needing to be changed:) But personality wise he's a content and laid-back baby:) And oh, soo snuggly:)

He's not on a schedule yet. But he's given me 3 nights soo far this week where he slept in 4-5 hours blocks and I"ve gotten to sleep!! Makes such a difference in how I feel that next day, especially since I"ve been trying to take care of the kids and the house more.


Andrea posted some of her amazing pics on her photography website;) here's the link:)


I totally understand why people would drive hours to get to a professional natural light photographer.... just their experience and equipment makes for good pictures. But then throw in someone like Andrea who can choose ordinary spots and use ordinary props to make some beautiful pictures;)


My only regret was that I didn't pull the whole family outside for some pictures of them with Nate!

Im close enough that we can do a re-shoot with all the kids any time :-) you know where to find me!
Nate def was perfect! If you feel up to it before hes 14 days old or so, ill do more. I would bring some baskets and more props besides blankets the next time.

Love his pictures. Can't wait to meet him :) Sorry yesterday didn't work out, but I'm sure we'll meet some time in the weeks to come.

I'm laughing b/c Nate is so big he doesn't look like a newborn. Josiah didn't either :) Big boys that are laid back are wonderful! :)
