Sleepy Squishy Nakee Nora

Shey came out yesterday to take newborn photos of Nora. Shey's amazing; so patient and calm and lovely and made us all feel so comfortable. Oh, and she takes pretty good photos, too.


Seriously, I might have started bawling when I opened the link and saw the above photo.


I also might have squeaked out, "That's my baby!"


I mean, look at those squishy lips! [Headband by Harper and Eden on Etsy.]


And her daddy's hair!


And you cannot believe how soft her skin is; I rub her back sometimes while she breastfeeds and this photo makes me want to go wake her up so I can touch her back right now.


Stop it with this hat, ohmygoshIcan'thandleit! The pink and her skin and oh my stinkin' heck, it's all too perfectly beautiful.


Even through the lack of sleep and figuring out a newborn, she has brought such contentment to us. Our family.


Shey, thank you so very much for capturing our precious Nora and our now family of three.
I'll treasure these images always.

[Shey posted these images on her blog and gave me permission to use them here.
The title of this post is thanks to a tweet from my friend Ryley.]

The top of her head one makes me think she'll be rocking Jason's faux-hawk before too long.

I can't begin to tell you how much I wish I was close enough to come over and hold her for myself...but even more to see you in person holding her...these photos are certainly the next best thing. Thank you for sharing them with us. {Also, YOU look AH-mazing! I only wish I looked so glamorous in my children's first photos}
