I LOVE babies. I think they are the sweetest, cutest, best little things in the whole world. I'm amazed at how quickly they learn, grow and change. I wish we could spread that first year out over 4 years. It is seriously the best year ever. Of course, all this growth and change is bittersweet. We want to keep our babies tiny forever and the only way we can do that is through photos. Looking back at the photographs of my kids when they were babies is one of my favorite things to do. I just can't believe how tiny they were and conversely how fast that time went. I cannot encourage you enough to take as many photos as possible that first year (and to have professional photos made a few times during that year!). I recommend sessions occur at least at 3 months, when the baby starts sitting up, 9 months, and one year.
Charlie is one of the cutest babies ever. He has the biggest, bluest eyes and you can tell he is always thinking and figuring things out. He loves those toes (and who doesn't love baby toes!?). He is such a happy baby and I've loved watching him grow this year!
