A few weeks ago (yes, I'm pulling photos from weeks ago since I'm sans camera right now...getting a dslr!), Noah and I visited my friend, Chelsea, and her new baby, Miranda. When we first arrived, Miranda was asleep in her swing, and Noah was cool with it. But I'm telling you, the MINUTE I got her in my arms, Noah wasn't having it. Not. At. All. "Baby go night night." Noah's repeated phrase. Followed by, "Mama, hold you" and crawling in my lap. A foretaste of things to come? Hopefully not. Hopefully, by the time he's a big brother he'll react differently to a babe in my arms. We shall see. The sweetest moment of the visit for me was when Noah finally warmed up to Miranda and volunteered to help Chelsea change her. Boy, when there's a task that involves wipes, Noah's your man.
I love this picture. I'm new to newborn photography, but man, I can tell I'm gonna like it. You almost can't take a bad picture when there's a baby in it. Well, ok, you can. Check out my discard pile for proof. And, did I mention..it's got pink in it. PINK! If you know me, you know that I someday hope to have a girl of my own. And she will wear pink. At least a little bit. :-) It's not my favorite color. In fact, aqua is. But, I guess the fact that I've been surrounded by boy stuff for so long has me vying for the hue. And it reminds me of spring. And I'm so ready for spring. Flowers, warmth, blue skies, sunshine, playing outside, gardening, growth.
Sweet, Miranda, I can't wait to see you grow. :-)
