My apologies to your husband. And to your self-esteem. Because one look at this photo will give you a serious complex:
Yeah…she just gave birth.
I looked like the Goodyear blimp after Will was born. Julia looks like a Proactive commercial. Again…not fair.
But that wasn’t really the point. The point is to make your reproductive organs ache…or your camera’s trigger finger. Either way.
This next one is the one Jule’s used for the birth announcements. I love how he looks like he is partially smiling. Gotta love it when newborns have those sleepy dreamy grins. New babies don’t do a lot of anything so these are definitely something to celebrate.
This was my first attempt at doing the propped chin on hands pose. Not the best because he kept on slouching down…too darn flexible this kid….but it did make for a cute photo. I swear that if I had even bent Will’s knees up to a sitting position, he grunted and made a face like he was pushing somethin’ outta socket.
Ethan was a little too long for the basket. But he didn’t seem to care. He just hooked that foot and fell asleep.
I was also able to grab one of the entire Anderson family. Since Jade’s kids were in town that weekend, we coerced them into the backyard and made tween jokes till they smiled. Doesn’t Ethan look like Jade’s daughter? Every time I see him I say that he looks like Campbell…but nobody seems to care. Well, except Campbell. I think she likes it that her new little brother looks like her. It might be that whole I-don’t-care-about-anything-but-boys phase coming on though.
okay…so I have one more baby session to share. later. after a fun DIY project post. till then, practice your yoga poses so that you can be as flexible as Ethan one day…and yes, it is okay to still be a little upset that Julia’s skin is perfect. just let’s not take it out on your computer…mmmkay!?
