One Month Old
I can’t believe it was a month ago today that Claire came out into this world! This month has really flown by, and yet, it feels like we’ve had her forever. Today was my first full day alone with her. Hard to believe, but we have tons of family… First, my mom… and step-dad… then, Chris’ mom… and dad & siblings… then a week with just Chris… and finally my dad and step-mom. It has been great to have so much family able to come up this way, but today was also blissfully full. Claire Anna is such a great baby, and she is changing every day! So… without further ado, I would like to share the pics for her official one month session (as well as some pics from a few weeks ago in her cute lil nursery). Happy viewing!
Love this expression. Every once in a while she lifts one brow and smiles with just one cheek… this is one of those moments where she isn’t sure she wants to do that. ha!
She’s started smiling at us!!
so peaceful (even if only for a moment without that pacifier)
I love how intently she looks at things (ie her reflection in my camera!)
This is my favorite of Chris and Claire. I took it first thing in the morning yesterday.
and now… for the nursery pics. She was only 10 days old in these. I took these for our announcements (which not all, but most, are out in the mail), so I withheld them from you until now. But I L-O-V-E these!
(note to any doctors out there: I placed her on her tummy for this shoot. she does not sleep on her tummy unless supervised.) ;-)
we already have this one framed. i love her lil lips in this.
check out the nursery! i know you guys will all love those three frames that I painted… that are EMPTY!!!! help me decide what to put in them!
last one… i just HAD to get a pic of her crying. she actually really loves her nursery and will calm down, in most cases, when we walk her in there. she loves the bright colors! BUT… she does not love (a) being hungry and (b) having a dirty diaper. she was both a and b here.
