Jayla is such a sweet baby and just as happy as these pictures portray. =)

I'd only had my camera a couple of weeks when I went to see my cousin's first grandbaby, so don't expect these to look real professional. They're still some of my favorites, anyway. Some of her expressions were so cute, I decided to post a few. (If you're noticing her "v" on her forehead, I didn't have Photoshop then, but wouldn't have erased her stork bite, anyway.)
Is it just me, or does everybody love chubby cheeked babies?
I'm crazy about pensive, serious expressions! There's something so "old soul" about this next one!
There's a sweet story about the blanket behind her. Kaitlyn was going to be my Nan's first great-great grandchild. For years Nannie had made sweet, pretty blankets for the great-grandchildren (including Kaitlyn's mommy) and wanted Kaitlyn to have one, too. Since Nan was now legally blind, she asked my mom to make it for her and told her exactly what she wanted it to look like (the color, type of lace, etc.). This project began a few months before the baby was due and my mom couldn't get it made fast enough to suit Nannie. When Mom finished it, Nannie then instructed her to add 3 tiny pink roses to one corner. Then she told Momma to tell my cousin and her daughter that the roses stood for "I-love-you." One month before Kaitlyn was born, my Nan died in her sleep. We wonder if she sensed she wouldn't be here in person to welcome this little one.
I love this one because I'm a sucker for all things generational. Kaitlyn's grandma (my cousin) is on the left and her great-grandma (my aunt) is on the right. What a sweet sandwich!

Brayden's mom, Toni, asked Shelbi to babysit Sunday afternoon. Since Toni's been wanting me to take his pictures, I took these quickly and surprised her when she picked him up. Toni was one of the Seniors I photographed last year.
He won't sleep on his stomach, so we just threw the bow on top of him anyway. He's three months old, but is still wearing newborn clothes. So tiny!
Brayden has some of the most perfect features and skin. I didn't have to touch up anything.

I kept him Memorial Day weekend, but he slept for hours on end. When he was awake I was busy with feeding, changing, and bathing him so I never got around to getting any quality pictures.
Anyway, we went to Sarah's on the 2nd and I snapped these on the floor. He was in the sweetest mood, as you can tell! I really don't want his babyhood to fly by any faster than it already is, but part of me can't wait till he's big enough to sit up and get some outside shots. =)
Elizabeth is such a pretty baby girl and so dainty. She was also very alert for a two month old. This first picture is my favorite.
There is something so precious about a baby in their daddy's hands. To me, it makes them seem so fragile and vulnerable. I love all of these with her daddy holding her. Her mommie said Elizabeth is a daddy's girl. So sweet!
She did peek over sweetly at her mommie, though.
This smile was the biggest one we got out of her. Well, I say "we," but this smile came courtesy of her big brother, Micah. All he had to do was look at her and she cracked up!
