Aubrey's 10 day Portraits


Hello to all! Sorry I haven't been posting more updates about our new precious baby Aubrey, but I am sure most of you out there can understand and sympathize with me having a 2 yr 5 month old and a newborn. It gets kind of crazy, but we are doing great overall. Keeping Lindsey off of the baby is our biggest challenge right now. She absolutely loves her to death and practically smothers her in kisses and in the process drives me completely batty - ahhh! :) The baby is absolutely perfect and sleeps nearly 24/7. I don't think Lindsey slept quite that much, but I contribute it to her being so much smaller and also having some jaundice, which I have been told makes them more tired. Aubrey only wakes up to eat and basically never cries. She usually goes 4 hours between feedings, but sometimes it's 2 or 3 hours. She lost down to 5 lb 10.9 oz and is approximately 6 lb 12 oz now as best as I can tell with weighing with and without her on my Mom's digital scales. I am a fanatic about getting professional pictures taken so I had her to JC Penney's at 10 days. I had Lindsey to the studio at 6 days, but wasn't able to get there that early with Aubrey due to other events going on. The outfit I had her picture taken in was what we brought her home in. I did the same with Lindsey. I figured every other picture taken of her will be in a pretty dress so this was my one chance to capture that new baby moment. I have attached the link below to the pictures that were taken at JCP. I will try to update again soon.
Special "thanks" to my Aunt Ruthie who made the beautiful blanket that is in the picture above. It is so perfect for a summer baby. It is seersucker material with a special hand crocheted edging. It is so lightweight and perfect. Absolutely beautiful!
