Newborn Pictures

Today is Westin's due date! I'm so glad he is already here! We just love him so much.

At 8 days old, Westin had his first photo shoot! He did such a good job. Poor baby let us pose him anyway we wanted. Rachel did an amazing job too! She had so many great ideas and worked so fast so we were able to get everything we wanted. Here are some pictures from her blog. When I get my CD of all the pictures I will post some more of my favorites.

You may remember this hat I bought here on etsy. We tried to re-create the pose and she got it!
He just looks like another toy in his bookcase. So tiny!
We placed his pillow on our bed.

She also got some great shots of the nursery. I'm so thankful for this because I always want to remember what it looked like.

More pictures to come! :)

That hat is the cutest thing that I have ever seen on a baby. I may have to get one for my nephew!

She did a great job & can't wait to see more.

What a blessing to have these photos to capture the moments of his tiny-babyhood! It goes by so fast; now you'll have something to help you remember when he was so very little. Just precious!

Hi Shannon--

I clicked over to your blog before church this morning, and couldn't help but leave a comment on Westin's beautiful pictures. . . but I was logged into my son's Blogger account! If you see a comment from "LegoLee" and wonder who on earth that is, it was from me. I do love baby boys. . . even thought my youngest is now almost 13! Hope you're all doing really well. :)

Jeni said...

What a perfect little model you have. He is BEAUTIFUL! You are so lucky to have such fun pictures of him. Of course that hat is my favorite...look at his little arms folded over in that photo. And that one of him on his shelf is to-die-for too.

I am glad you are doing well...I know about those C-sections. Plus you are a domestic perfectionist and those two together are hard...but I bet your hardest part is over.

Your a MOM!
Jeni
