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 🙂
