Vivian's a week and one day old today, on what was her official due date. She's continuing her quest to hijack A's reigning title of "easiest baby ever". (I fully realize I may jinx myself by saying that.) She eats well, sleeps well, and other than the aforementioned distaste of undressing and diaper changing, she doesn't ever put up much of a fuss about anything. She's alert, though- if she thinks there's action going on she might be missing out on, she's all big blue eyes and curious little ears.
V's first week has been well documented by two very talented photogs. First, we had my friend Brandy of Brandy Leigh Photography come over. Brandy's breaking into the business and is as sweet and funny as she is talented. From what I've seen so far (see the sneak preview here), she really captured V's budding personality and will have no trouble getting her photography business of the ground with skills like that! Second, we had a fun, cozy session with Mary Stone, a photographer my mom hired to do photos as a wonderful surprise baby gift. We met with Mary yesterday morning and were totally blown away by the preview she showed us last night (there were tears, people, lots and lots of mascara ruining tears). Here are a few of the images that took my breath away:
this one just "gets" our A
miss bee, tolerating nudity momentarily for art's sake
and mister bug, suddenly all boy, no baby
