Baby Photos Sneak Peek

The photographer that I stumbled upon (quite literally) at the end of my pregnancy came this week to take newborn photos of Bronwyn plus some family photos. Grayden of course pulled out all the stops and was a complete charmer the entire time, smiling for the camera and signing "more" when the photos were done. He just couldn't get enough. He also loved snuggling his baby sister.

Here is a little sneak peek at the photos, with more to come when we get all the images. I absolutely LOVE our family photo. (How does everyone look so good? And how do I look so normal after having had a baby just a mere four days earlier?) And little Bronwyn's cheeks and hair just melt my heart.

Bronwyn Aria Dawson

Introducing Bronwyn Aria Dawson. She weighed 7 lbs 5 oz (practically two pounds less than her brother at birth!) and was 19 inches long. She looks so much like Grayden when he was born. We just adore her thick black hair and her sweet demeanor (as much as a newborn can have at this point).

Grayden was instantly curious about his little sister and within hours really wanted to touch her. He is still getting over a cold, so we couldn't let him get too close for the first day or so. But this morning he asked to snuggle her, so we let him hold her in a chair and he was just so happy.
