This is little Jessica, 3 days after she was born. A new human being! We were quite fixated on her tiny little grabbing hands with the perfectly formed, tiny fingernails. Well, at least I was. I know R is super chuffed about being an uncle and picturing what she will be like when she grows up as he keeps talking about how he is going to teach her tennis and how I must teach her piano...

I can't wait to (hopefully) keep taking beautiful photos of her as she grows up. Something about her and babies just brings out this gooey, maternal tendency in me. I am well aware that for the vast majority, they spend their time pooping, eating and crying but when they are sleeping peacefully, content or when they look at you with those shiny inquisitive eyes...how can you not melt inside?! At least they haven't reached that bratty little monster stage like my 6 year old sister. I'm joking, I love her most of the time.

In other news, R and I will be embarking on our mini holiday in less than 2 days! Fingers crossed the weather isn't too awful in Hunter Valley or the Gold Coast. If it is, I am going to wear my bikinis out in the rain anyway, you watch me.

  7. How do I keep missing your posts on my dashboard?!?!?

    Jessica is so tiny and cute! Do you notice that she doesn't have cuticles on her fingernails yet? I'm marveling at the little baby fat creases on her wrist and the fine down she still has. This is going to be such an exciting photographic journey for you!
