Newborn babies (especially little boys named Jacob!) are the sweetest, little things to grace this earth.  I love how they scrunch their face in protest one minute but then smile in their sleep the next.  And there's really nothing better than getting to spend time with a sweet little boy like this one on a rainy Saturday morning!

on the night you were born, the moon smiled with such wonder, that the stars peeked in to see you, and the night whispered, 'life will never be the same,' because there has never been anyone like you ever in the world.  [nancy tillman]

The one thing that never fails to amaze me is how quickly babies change.  Even in the matter of a couple weeks, suddenly they seem so grown-up!  Luckily I was able to sneak in an at home session with Ava in addition to visiting her in the hospital.

Seeing her cuddled up with her mama and daddy, along with overprotective pup Bailey, was just the sweetest.

Karson was one sleepy babe during her session.  But, really.  Babies are just pure sweetness when they're all cuddled up, breathing heavily.  And this one.  Well, she is one of the sweetest girls, with the biggest, brightest blue eyes when they are open.

You know that person that's like 'sorry boss, my friend had a baby.  I've got to leave?'  That was me.  I think I made it through about two hours of work before high-tailing it over to the hospital to meet Lauren and Joe's new little one.  Lauren actually took my son's hospital photos, so it was only fitting that I be the one taking hers.

Baby Ava, you are already so loved.  And beautiful.  With the most perfect fingernails that any newborn can have.  You are definitely on your way to being a hand-model someday.
