You Capture – A Moment

This week’s “You Capture” theme at i should be folding laundry is “A Moment.”  One week ago today I had my beautiful new baby girl.  We knew she was coming, as it was a scheduled c-section, but we didn’t know she was a “she” as we wanted to keep that a surprise.  As soon as one of the doctors said they saw lots of hair, I just knew…both of my boys were completely bald.  Needless to say, we’ve had lots of moments in the last week…here are a few…

My husband took these two of her first moments…

  5. Ohmygoodness! Look at all those precious, sweet moments. I am so happy for you and your new addition to your family. That little girl already looks so loved by her older brothers. She is so blessed to have two older boys to protect her. Great captures. Really beautiful.

  9. Congratulations. That is so awesome that you had a girl. She is absolutely beautiful. I'll probably be having one of those planned C-Sections, but in August. We have our ultrasound tomorrow and I must say I don't have as much patience as you to wait till the moment of birth to find out the sex.
