I probably should have hired a photographer who knew what they were doing to come photograph my newborn... but where's the fun in that? I'm still learning how to use my camera, and am hoping with practice and time, I will get better and better. Some of the pictures in this post are actually from my really fancy camera. And by really fancy camera I mean my cell phone. I did it. I used my iPhone to take my newborns photos. But not all of them were taken with an IPhone! Sheesh!

My mom was in town and made Tennesy that beautiful blanket. I made the hat and TuTu, and a friend gave me the cute headband. I have a whole file full of pictures from this shoot, so don't you worry! You'll be getting many more over the next few weeks ;D

I'll also do a tutorial on the photography and the tutu soon. So keep your eyes peeled!

I don't know how I can be so happy and also more exhausted than I've ever been, at the same time. Like completely exhausted. I also didn't know I could be so in love with someone. I thought I knew love when I met Mike, but I think we both agree that this is a whole new love. And seeing Mike with our little girl just makes my heart melt. We are definitely smitten by this girl, and are so happy she is finally here. I'll post the birth story soon, but for now we are enjoying this moment. Taking ridiculous amounts of pictures, trying to stay awake, dozing for those five minutes when we can, and just watching her sleep when we can't! Oh how we love this little girl. Welcome to the family, Tennesy.

Nov. 5

My sweet mama came to town last week!  It's been so fun having her here, and she has been such a huge help. Thank heavens for mamas, am I right? We spent yesterday at the hospital and we are at a different one tonight! We all can't wait to hold this sweet girl we have been waiting so long to meet.
