BG's rider includes periodic booby snacks between photo shoots

Baby Blues by Rick Kirkman & Jerry Scott

BG is 4 months, 1 week and 1 day old.

We finally took family photos yesterday. The last time we took them I was still bloated and completely sleep deprived. BG was still in the eyes closed phase.

This time around BG could sit on my lap and had her eyes open.

Of course, it took us 3.5 hours to get some photos but we're still new parents. There was the set up which took 2 hours. Don't ask. There was the the boob eats for BG. There was the changing of clothes. There was the "how to coax a smile" moments. There was the repositioning of baby after a topple over.

Family photos seems to be stressful for us, ok me. I hope it gets better as we develop a routine. The pictures mean alot to me as having photos of our growing family is important to me and the first year seems to have the most change.

My next big photo project is Christmas cards and this year, I plan to go green and send out an e-photo card rather than a paper card. No need to add to the pile of needless paper. My mind is racing
