Remember these two?
Just a few days after these pictures were taken, they became three.
Meet Miss Zailey Rae.
She is an absolute doll.
Perfect in every way.
Our plans for Zailey's first photo shoot took a detour courtesy of Mother Nature, so we just brought the outdoors into my dining room.
My hubby helped me haul furniture around, gathered flowering branches for me, and soon we brought my dream of baby swing in the crabapple tree to life.
I'm always up for a good Plan B.
Her mom and dad are absolutely head over heels in love with this darling thing, and it's easy to see why.
Sweet baby toes, just waiting to be nibbled.
A perfect swirl of gorgeous baby hair.
We had the heat turned up to August in the Tropics temperatures, but even so, girlfriend was not a fan of being naked.
This was her "don't touch my blankie" look.
Little Miss was barely, barely asleep, but inch by inch we pulled it back, and we were finally able to score a few shots of her in her birthday suit.
After she was finally allowed the dignity of having her clothes back on, she happily relaxed in front of the fireplace while I snapped just a few shots of the new mom and dad.
Oh, was this fun!
Dear Baby Zailey,
You. Are. Sweet.
Will you be my friend?
