I have a mountain of photos from the last few weeks…… I thought I took a lot of photos of Astrid when she was a newborn, but I’ve excelled myself this time – I’m at 542 photos just of Soren up until the end of October! I won’t bore everyone with all of them but I’ll post a selection of my favourites from his first 2 weeks on the outside.
I have a ton of cute ‘newborn’ photos I took at a week old which I’ll do a separate post for and some family pics we had taken by a photographer which I’ll also post shortly. Seemingly I have less time to edit photos and blog these days, so I’ll get on with it…….
1 day old and cuddles with mum!
2 days old – my squishy, peaceful face…….
3 days old – Meeting the great-grandparents (Nan and Pa).
Nan is blind and mostly deaf, so she had to just feel Soren as she couldn’t see him.
4 days old and cuddles with big sister Astrid (who still adores me)!
5 days – cuddles with a suited up Grandpa as he headed off to receive an award and peacefully sleeping with my bunny and a rug a friend knitted for my big sister!
6 days – sleeping like an angel….
I love wrap me ups, just like my big sister (sssh, mum sometimes puts me in her pink one)!
1 week old, it’s a hard life!
8 days -look how little I am!
Rob and Anto with their youngest offspring. We had to do a size comparison with baby Benjamin (now 5 months) as we did a similar one with Benjamin’s sister Sarah and Astrid as a newborn who are 3 months apart in age! …… and yet more cuddles with Granny.
11 days – still sleeping peacefully!
13 days – cuddles with mum, my big sister, and the midwife who caught me as I entered the world, Janette!
2 weeks – Briefly awake for cuddles with Uncle Mikl, but it’s tough staying awake for too long…….
16, 17 and 18 days – meeting more family
I finally get to meet Gramps and Aunt Triona who have arrived from Queensland and Great Aunt Sue who is up from Victoria…..
