Newborn Pictures

When Graham and Evie Claire were about 2 weeks old I had a photographer come to my mom's house to get some pictures of Eric and I with the babies. As a photographer myself I knew I could capture both of them perfectly (or how I wanted to anyway) but who was going to take pictures of Eric and I with them? So here are a few of our photo shoot from that day....

Happy Valentine's Day!

Graham and Evie Claire got their own haul of Valentine's this year!! 

Evie Claire already has her own personal suitor in Mr. Nolan Edward Ange! He sent her this Valentine in the mail....She has requested that I tape it on the inside of her crib so she can check out Mr. Nolan before she takes her nap each day! He will be her future husband!

Happy 1 Month Graham and Evie Claire!

I can not believe that you are 1 month old already! Time sure is flying by! This last month has definitely been a whirlwind and as we are settling into our life as a family of 4 I am loving that fact that I am your mommy.

-you smile in your sleep all the time...I finally caught one of those precious smiles on camera.
-you love your swing and fall asleep in it almost every morning after I feed you
-you love to lay on your tummy and when you are upset I just flip you over on it and all is well
-since you were in the NICU for so long hardly anyone got to visit you there so when they come to the house everyone wants to see you
-you look just like your mommy and your Papa Nave

-you are so alert and aware of your surroundings and love to look around
-you constantly move your hands
-your temperature dropping is one of our main concerns about you right now so you still have to wear your hat and lots of blankets
-you look just like your daddy.
-you are still so tiny but you make a great snuggler
-you only cry when you have a poopie diaper or drop your pacifier...and it's more of a scream than a cry

Here are some pictures from your first month!

Graham's First Bath!

Graham and Evie Claire-we fall more in love with you everyday!!!

My Due Date!

Today was my original due date....and today Graham and Evie Claire are 4 weeks old!! So hard to believe and time is flying by!!! Eric just said to me while we were eating dinner that Graham and Evie Claire were 40 weeks today! So I thought I would share a little picture from today! My friend, Melanie, made these onesies and the headband for Evie Claire. She owns the Darling Little Bow Shop!  (Check her out on Etsy or Facebook). 

And when I turned around I caught them holding hands....

They will be 1 month old on Friday! I have lots of pictures to share from this first month and of course we will have a little Valentine's Day photo shoot next week!!

Graham and Evie Claire's Birth Story....

I 100% believe the old saying "a picture is worth 1,000 words." That is why I love photography so much. One photograph can tell a whole story. My friend Jill wrote her perspective of Graham and Evie Claire's birth on her blog and it was beautiful. I don't remember too terribly much about that night....I keep relying on everyone else that was there to tell me all about the details. Jill took all the pictures in the operating room therefore these pictures are Graham and Evie Claire's birth story! I put them into a slideshow! I hope you enjoy it!
