The day of my last post, I was doing a final edit from the hospital. We sat in the maternity center waiting room as my bro and sister-in-love awaited the arrival of their first child, sweet little Anaelle Nicole (uh-nell). While I've been an aunt ever since my wedding, I've never actually been there as a family member has been born. I can't tell you how much love I felt since the moment I first held her.
She was born at 1:50 p.m. on March 5th. She's a tiny little thing, weighing 6 lbs 4 oz at the time and only 18 1/2 inches long!
The weirdest thing is thinking of my parents as grandparents, but they make some pretty cute grandparents! :)
And the sweetest thing from the day, besides Anaelle, was watching my brother be a loving husband to his wife. It was so sweet seeing him get her water, or chapstick, or brushing the hair from her face. And then the world changed as I watched him become a father and he instantly fell in love with his little girl. Absolutely adorable.
She is now just over a week old, and I was thrilled to go do a photoshoot at their home!
Pardon the sudden flood of photos, but I have a new niece, so what do you expect? :)
Oh my goodness, I can't get over those tiny little fingernails!!
This rocking horse used to be in my brother's room when he was a baby!
I LOVE the incorporation of scripture on the wall and in the artwork.
Someone in the area puts storks in yards for new babies! How cute!
Just look at those tiny little feet!
And of course a picture of her in her Cardinal gear to make the grandparents happy! :)
I'm sure I'll go a little crazy with photos in the future, but this is just so much fun. I've never really had the chance to do a full infant photoshoot, so I can't wait to spend some more time with her and capture some amazing moments!
I hope everyone is having a beautiful weekend. I'm so excited for everything God is doing in our family right now and I can't wait to see what He has in store for this year!
