Stephen was laying on a bean bag chair covered in this lime green blanket. He was so squishy during the photo session, and let us pose him in so many different ways.
We thought the owl hat would be perfect, since Stephen's room has owls in it, too. Doesn't he look cute?
I wasn't sure if I would like this picture when our photographer showed us the hat. But, as soon as I saw him in it, I knew I would love it! I'm thinking he needs a stocking cap like this one for winter!
This was on the "must-have" list of photos Shawn wanted. I just love the curly tail!
This is one of my favorites, although it is definately difficult to pick a favorite since they're all so wonderful! Stephen is sleeping in the cradle made by my great-uncle, and in the background you can see the quilt my aunt made using my wedding gown and Abi's junior bridesmaid gown.
Another one sleeping with the wedding quilt.
This is another one of my favorites. He is still in the cradle, but this time with a blanket and pillow that my friend, Michele, crocheted for him. The set looks perfect in the cradle!
Here's one of Shawn's favorites, although he had a hard time deciding if he liked this one, or the same shot in black and white better. We ordered a print of the black and white one, and I have a feeling both of these will be hanging in the Man Cave very soon.
I just love Abi's face in this picture! Stephen was crying, and Abi was afraid to hold him without his diaper on. We had already had a few accidents that day, and she was not excited about the possibility of being a part of another one. I love that this picture doesn't look posed...its just a natural shot.
The two boys that have stolen my heart.
I am so in love. I had no idea it would be possible to love him this much.
And, finally, our first family photo.
