Kaili had a photoshoot

On Tuesday morning I had a friend of ours who is a photographer come over and take some pictures of Kaili. The plan was that I would bathe her knowing that she would be most awake just after and that if I fed her she would sleep for a long time so we could take the majority of them with her asleep.

I think they turned out awesome, but there is a funny story behind it all...

Well, she peed in the bath water, then again on my leg just after her bath and then again when I went to put a diaper on her on the changing table. We put her in her first pose and we found a smudge of poo on the scarf, then we put her on the next set and we found another smudge, then on a blanket, then there were two other little episodes, and then she finally let loose on my arm and peed on our bed for the grand finale. I ended up doing 2 loads of laundry for the 3 hours she had her diaper off.

I am glad she is so healthy. Here are my favorites from the pics she took. The photographer's name is Brooke Snow if any of you want to look her up. She gave us a REALLY good deal since she had never taken newborn shots before.

Our favorite is the last one. So sweet. I do love the story that goes along with the pictures. Made us laugh pretty hard. Can't wait to see you in a week.

Oh my gosh! Those are soooo precious! And that story is too funny. Wait til you have a boy who pees in the tub! I got shot in the face a few times.

My favorite are the middle three starting with her Buddha belly smile, then the eyes open circle lips, then the smile! They capture her little expressions she makes perfectly!

Is that really the most alert she gets? I really like the props in the first two- and that story is pretty funny... she's so healthy and has no shame! One of my favs is the third to last with you both smiling. I love the Skeens!
