Allow me to introduce sweet baby “M”. At 8 weeks old she is hardly a newborn anymore, but let’s give her a break, coming home at under 4 pounds she had to plump up for her big photo debut:) you’d never know it by looking at her now that she was born nearly 6 weeks early, she is absolutely beautiful and thriving.
There are definitely advantages to taking newborn photos within the first few weeks, their willingness to sleep, sleep, sleep, their tiny pliable bodies that love to be curled into a little ball, capturing the utter newness of ever wrinkle and expression. But in our case, baby “M” was an excellent subject and too gorgeous for words, and the best part was that at a mature 8 weeks old she was showing off her precious little smile that most newbies save for those later weeks.
Congratulations “W” family, she is just precious!
