For both of my babies, it took a couple of months before I sent out birth announcements. It's so much easier to take pictures of other people's newborns than your own. Obviously! During those first several weeks at home, I try to give myself a bit of grace in getting those *gorgeous* baby photos that I just have to have of my own babies. After just coming home from the hospital, the last thing that I feel up to doing is having a photo session with my own newborn, so for both babies, I just snuck in a few photos here and there. The above photo is one of my favorites that I've taken of my little guy so far.
While the first photo was taken in the past week or two, the above photo as well as the one below were taken within the first week of being home, about 6 weeks ago now. Can you see how much his cheeks have filled out?
Obviously, I love this photo because it shows my daughter's genuine excitement with being a big sister. How sweet are they?
