Thank you everyone-- The photo I posted was from our professional newborn session. She came to our house and she's genius. I DID curl the top layer of my hair, but that hasn't happened again. And I'm not kidding about red lipstick! It makes everyone look put-together! Maybe I'll post a pic at the end of the day rocking my comfies and bun with 4-day dirty hair to keep it real. :grinning:
Sarahknavy, DS didn't get a bath til day 7. His cord was making him smell FUNKY!
The hospital has a photographer come around and take photos and then you go buy them from their website. They took some really amazing ones in the daylight from the window. I'm hoping to do more like that when we go home. I like to get the closeups that really shows the veins in the skin and stuff that I'll want to remember when he's not a newborn anymore. I won't be buying theirs because they are hundreds of dollars, but I will be stealing their ideas and getting some similar shots!
@Valerie11, he's adorable! Our hospital had the same kind of deal with the photographer coming around. They sure do make it look easy and I may also try to replicate some shots at home. I have a great basket, blanket and sunny picture window! My mom was there when she came around and bought our pics for us, though. @alivewithyou, she is a little beauty for sure! The picture of your family is gorgeous.
