This little guy is one of the luckiest babies I know. He has five older brothers who are always going to be looking after him and making sure no one messes with him. And I don’t know sports, but doesn’t this make a basketball team?
Hopefully soon I will get a shot of all six boys together with mom and dad but we’ll give little man a break first. He already wasn’t too keen on this whole newborn photo shoot thing. Between the bright sun and the ridiculous wind, he was actually quite the trooper!
This sweet, tiny didn’t come in the way any of us would have preferred, including her parents. But we are all so thankful she is here. In the last five months she has brought so much joy to our extended family and we can’t imagine what it would be like without her. Such personality! And those smiles!
Praying that she grows to have a relationship with the one and only God who created her.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
When asked about taking little Henry’s newborn pictures I must admit that I was a bit concerned and nervous. But once I got to the house I realized that he was doing remarkably well for someone who was born at 25 weeks and 5 days and has had four surgeries (two of which were on his brain).
Henry finally got to come home with his parents just one short month ago, two days after his due date, at the age of three months.
Though he is technically four months, Henry is developmentally registering at one month. So, yes, these are considered his “newborn” photos.
Thank you, Woollen’s, for trusting me to not germ up your sweet little guy and for allowing me into your home to document these precious moments. Oh, and the baby snuggles weren’t half bad either. 😉
