Bundle of Joy

Connor looked so warm and cozy all bundled up in my arms while we snuggled on the couch. All four of us are now fighting a lovely cold. Its so sad to hear a 2 week old cough!

Baby socks

I think Connor looks so handsome in this little outfit. I especially love his football socks. I think it is crazy how BIG they look on his tiny little legs though! I definitely remember when they became too small for Noah. I would say it feels like it will be forever before they are too small for Connor, but I know just how fast babies grow so I'm sure I'll be boxing them up before I know it.

We asked Noah to kiss Connor and we were all surprised when he did it, very gently! We made such a big fuss, we all clapped and gave him lots of praise, that luckily he was willing to do it again on camera! :) Connor is one lucky little brother!

Yay for another picture with Auntie Denise!

Auntie Denise is Here!

Auntie Denise is here to visit! We had a wonderful weekend with our entire family. Connor thought it was very exciting :)

Love this sweet little hand holding. Noah is getting a bit more interested in Connor, he likes to pat him and look at us, waiting for him to tell him he's a good boy. LOL

Connor also got to meet his Great Grandmother Evelyn Perry today; but Mommy failed to take a picture! :(

Mr. Magoo / baby bird

In the hospital I nicknamed Connor Mr. Magoo. This picture is a great example of why that name fits ;)

Although we actually call him 'baby bird' more than anything, because he only really squawks when he wants food (or needs to be burped) and he is really eager with opening his mouth waiting to be fed. It's pretty darn cute to see him with his wide open mouth and wobbly uncoordinated bobble head.

Two Weeks Old!

These past two weeks have gone by so fast! Especially since I've been sick in bed for pretty much the last 4 days straight. Poor Daddy has been having to do everything around the house and for Noah. We are so lucky to have him!

Slightly more alert

Connor is spending a little bit more time every day awake and checking out his surroundings, although really he still sleeps the majority of the day. Noah for the most part still ignores him, except for the occasional point and 'baby!' declaration.

Mommy and Connor

I have been HORRIBLE about taking pictures with Connor. I have like, maybe 5. I need to get better about that. And I need to take more pictures of the boys together. Although it's impossible to get Noah to sit next to Connor for more than 2.5 seconds, plus I'm worried about Noah 'patting' Connor too roughly. I'm sure they'll have a million once Noah is old enough to be bribed to sit still ;)

Bear hat 10 days old

I put Connor in the same bear/monkey/mouse(?) hat that Noah wore when he was 10 days old. What do you think, mini twins? I see a lot of differences. Connor seems to have more 'petite' facial features. Definitely brothers!

Sock Monkey and Tonka Truck Fun

I'm officially addicted to photographing this little man!

James was given this exact Tonka truck for his third birthday. We even have a picture of him opening it! :)

First Bath

Connor's umbilical cord is all healed up so we were able to give Connor his first "bath" today. He doesn't enjoy being naked or cold so he wasn't a big fan of it.

One Week Old!

Connor is one week old today! He is still so tiny that most newborn clothes are very baggy on him. (Onsies excluded)

Baby lips

Look at these wittle pouty lips! Just too cute

First newborn session with Mommy

Noah went down for his nap and I spent a wonderful hour snapping away. These are a few of my favorites :)

 Welcome Pinterest Peeps! If you're in the Bay Area, CA and would like to have me photograph your precious little one using the 'love' letters, check out my website, :)

First Walk to the Park

We spent a beautiful Valentine's Day as a family today. Connor went on his first walk to the park! He slept through the entire thing so apparently he wasn't too impressed. :)

First Doctor Visit

Connor had his first doctor appointment today, the standard weight check up. He is doing well; no signs of jaundice, he is eating well and sleeping well. I was a bit nervous at how vocal he was the first 24 hours or so at the hospital but he seems to have gotten comfortable with life at our house.

It was fun to see him wear this teddy bear and baseball outfit, it was Noah's going home outfit :)

Our boys

I know not to compare our boys as they grow, they are both precious and special and wonderfully unique. But it is so cute to look back at pictures of Noah when he was Connor's age, and see their similarities.

This is Noah, 4 days old, wearing one of my favorite newborn PJs, dinosaur jammies that say "snugglesaurus"

And here is Connor, 3 days old, wearing the same jammies. They are both so stinking cute!

I LOVE these videos. Here is Noah's one day old newborn cry:

And here is Connor's one day old newborn cry:

A bit louder eh? :)

Sleeeeepy Baby

This is what Connor does most of the time these days:

Look at this little stud muffin, I think we may have another blue eyed boy on our hands :)

I wanted to include a picture of these adorable flowers Praxair (James' work) sent us. The nurses and everyone who came to visit commented on how cute they are!

Home, Sweet Home

We were eager to get home and begin our life as a family of four, so we were excited when the doctor said we could go home Friday night. Grandma and Papa Ray brought Noah home in his jammies and we were able to put our boys to sleep in their own beds.

Look how tiny he looks in Daddy's hand! :)

In Hospital Photography Session

Our hospital offers free sessions from a photographer who came directly to our room. It was nice having quality pictures taken the day after he was born, as babies change so quickly. We ordered prints of these two, as keepsakes. I definitely thought I would be the first to photograph him but that's ok, I know I will be taking way, way too many pictures of him soon! :)

Welcome to the world Connor!

The night/morning you were born was so special to us! We put your brother to bed and drove to the hospital at 10pm, so excited to meet you! Grandma and Papa came at 2am and the fun began at 4am. At 9:47am you arrived, healthy and as handsome as could be!

Patiently waiting for you.

I loved being able to hold you for an hour directly after your birth. It was such an amazing feeling.

Proud Daddy!

First bath!

Getting weighed and measured. You were 7lbs 13.2ounces and 19 1/2 inches long. We call you our little baby bird, you make it very obvious when you're hungry. You have quite the screech, nice healthy lungs! :)

Grandma and Papa Ray, proud of their 4th grandchild!
