Geneva Joy [Just Brand New]

Lifestyle Personal

New babies are like campfires – you can watch them for hours and all at once nothing changes and everything changes.

Froggy legs

Wrinkled knees

Hands that won’t stay out of her mouth

Tight, tiny, mad fists

A tongue that sticks out when she cries

And a big brother who climbs into the middle of all things baby and loves and loves and loves.

Meet my new little lady.

At that point, we will come back home (without baby!) and then return to Ethiopia 3-6 weeks later to bring. him. home. For now, we are playing the name game. We haven't made any decisions yet, but if you are looking for a baby name book at a library in our area, you'll have to come to my house. I have them all. Sorry about that.
Newborn Dorothy
I introduced you to miss Dorothy Hazel a couple of weeks ago, and today I'm excited to show you her newborn photos. Now here's the thing about miss Dorothy - Dorothy is baby number 3. 3! And the thing about being baby number 3 is that there's no time to lay around looking serene and sleepy in a little basket. No way. Baby number 3 jumps right into all the motion and commotion that is created by older siblings. I loved the way Dorothy's newborn shoot incorporated the way that her life - her family's life - really is right now. It's exciting and high energy and everyone is excited to have her join in the fun! We jumped on the bed, scrambl ...
