Today is National Best Friends Day. And so it seems fitting to share these newborn portraits today, showcasing my more-than-half-a-lifetime best friend and her new baby girl and family. At her own childhood home. It couldn’t have been more fitting.
There was so much sweetness. There was so much laughter. I will admit that much of that laughter occurred while the two kiddos were crying (often thanks to the meanie adults insisting on diaper changes and not understanding remote controls are the best toys). But a lot of the laughter came from just being happy to see these two cuties with their parents.
And shout-out to grandma for making sure the flowers were picture-perfect for sweet baby girl’s first photographs!
Aaaand he’d already had enough of staying in one place.
We put this one in his sleeping quarters with some toys due to the remote control issue I’d mentioned. So then, instead of turning the TV on and off, he found the light switch and turned the lights on and off for the next five minutes to
exact revenge entertain himself.
“And then what, Mom? Tell me all the stories!”
We took a few moments for a tickle fight…
…and then he perfected his chill.
It wasn’t all rambunctious two-year-old excitement, though. This tiny babe was as relaxed as could be in her daddy’s lap.
And we’ll close it out with one of my favorite mama-and-baby portraits ever:
Friends — I had a wonderful morning with your wonderful little family!
