the front of his announcement.
duh, he has to have a food nickname. it was either taquito or nico pico…de gallo. lol. (we now have ella mozarella, anna banana, nori cacciatore, olivia activia ‘livers’, mia tortilla, and nico taquito. )
he looks so cute and peaceful because he just squirted out the back of the sling all over the pillows and the studio floor beneath him. siigh.
the front of his birth announcement.
the back.i want to kiss his face off.adam should have zoomed out a shot and captured everything that was going on in the studio at the time. hilarious. from how we hung the sling, to where and how i was laying, to the splatter beneath him. it was a site to see.
something about a teeny baby in their daddy’s strong arms, makes me melt.
this is totally “corny” according to adam, but i still love it. his issue is it’s too studio set up which is fine, but it’s not our style. if i shot this in natural light, with whatev blurred in the background, he’d love it.
lights make his hair look kind of red. weird cause it doesn’t look like that in real life.
only a week old here.
about one mth! man that faaaleeeew by!
adam was at work so nori was around which i thought would make me miserable while i tried to take a couple shots of him. instead, she was being super sweet and wanted to be involved. once when we were dressing them at the same time, i let nori hold him skin to skin. like anyone who has held a baby skin to skin (best feeling in the world!!!), she didn’t want to let go. so while i was taking pics she says, “mommy i cuddle with nico. i take my shirt off too. hold him!” i went with it. i know i’m emotionally attached to this image cause it’s my own kids…but seriously…does it get any sweeter than this?
i’m always fascinated when i see people compare their children in the exact same outfit and at the same age. well i would have loved to do that, but my kids are drastically different. i just happened to see this onesie and wondered if it fit him yet. yah, that won’t fit next week!
Nico: 3wks 10.6lbs 22.5in Nori: 3mths 10.9lbs 22.5in
that’s all for now. happy new years loft(3) friends! heart, melanie.
