Baby Zachary

It’s been an interesting morning so far.  I accidentally deleted my blog template, temporarily lost all my customizations, and then decided to start over.  I have been wanting to use a template that would let me use larger photos and customize the background.  I’ve been scared to try it because I’m not very adept with things like this, so my accident this morning was just the thing to get me to take the plunge.

I think I will really like being able to show larger photos and today I have a group of photos that I am really excited to share.  Remember the new baby I mentioned in my last post?  He arrived on Tuesday morning. 

His name is Zachary and he was 7 lbs 7 oz.  The blanket was made by an Auntie on the other side of the family.  She is supposedly a “new” quilter, but by the looks of that perfect blanket stitch, I think she might have been secretly practicing for the last few years and didn’t tell anybody.  Either that or she is a natural.

These photos were taken when he was only one day old.  We all decided he looked more like a two-week old baby.  He didn’t have that red, wrinkled, slightly bruise, cone shaped look that many babies do.  He is absolutely perfect. 

The only thing that came out wrinkled, were his skis.  Oops.  I meant feet.

He is welcomed home by an older sister and two older brothers.

He has a full head of brown hair, just like his brothers did when they were this age.

After seeing Camille’s new baby post, I thought it would be fun to try some black and white photos too.  I think they turned out pretty sweet, plus it gives me a chance to share a few more pictures.

Last one – just the boys.

We are all glad that the waiting is over and that everything turned out fine.   Congrats to my brother and his wife on the new addition.  He is beautiful!

Now, I feel the need to go knit a baby hat 🙂

    Oh, what a beautiful baby! My cousin just had a baby this week and she did not have that wrinkly red look, either. Wonder why some babies come out like that and some don’t? (Mine sure did!)

    He is one of the most beautiful babies I have seen! BEAUTIFUL!!! I know you are so proud to be an aunt again.

    The blanket is wonderful too. It looks so very soft and the name in bright colors is perfect!

    I like your new blog stuff!! Nice.

    You are so right, Zachary is indeed a perfect looking little baby! And what a lovely family he has as well! Congratulations to everyone.

    A baby straight from heaven. He’s beautiful. What a lovely quilt from his aunt. Great family pics. Congrats.

    Great pictures. I love the black and white ones. I was trying to figure out who was related to you and I guessed right. There’s something about the eyes that resembles yours.

  15. Linda P. says:

    Precious!!! And I must say handsome!! You are right – he sure doesn’t look that brand new. I predict his brothers and sister will spoil him rotten, and should!
    I love how you took the photos! Thanks for always sharing your family!

  16. Camille says:

    The new blog looks great!
    Zachary is gorgeous- love those giant wrinkly feet. Great pictures too- it is so hard to get good picture of babies, isn’t it?

    Want to knit two? 😉

  17. He is so sweet, what a lucky auntie:)

  18. Mary Ann says:

    Congratulations on becoming a new auntie again!! He is just darling and you are right; he looks like he is at least 2 weeks old! His brothers and sister will have lots of fun with him. I think you better start on a quilt also to go with the hat!

    Forgot to mention that I like the new blog template you are using now. I like the larger pictures.
