Something about girls

My good friend Jeanette took this picture, she is such a good photographer. I came to her with this idea in my head of this picture I wanted and she made it even better than I imagined. I hope to be able to take pictures like her someday. She did a whole photo shoot, but this is the only one I've seen so far.
Something is so different about having a little girl in the house! She is so much more fragile and everything she does seems sweet, even dirty diapers. Cache was so fun, but we seemed to think he was just hilarious from the time he was born. With Naomi, we just sigh a lot, and say "ahh." Quick story to demonstrate. Our good friends came by the house for a visit who have two boys.(I'll leave their name out just in case they aren't happy I'm sharing this story, but really it was soo funny.) They walked in the house however with only one boy. After a few moments I started looking around for their baby and couldn't see him. "Where's you little one? Did you leave him at home?" They looked around and then at each other.."Oh my gosh did we leave him outside?" Outside sitting on the front steps in his car seat was their little guy, just hanging out happy as could be. HAHA! Devin and I laughed about that for a couple days. HARD....It was just so funny. But as we were laughing about it, and I'm thinking "That is something I might do anyday of the week." Devin says "I could NEVER forget her somewhere like that, EVER." He's a gonner! Not even 2 weeks old and she's got daddy's heart strings.

SUCH A CUTE PICTURE and what a hilarious story, I don't judge them for leaving their baby outside:0 Don't we all do things like that. How was your birthday?

I want to hold her so bad! She is so sweet. There really is something about a little girl. Not that I know anything different, but girls are just so tender and fragile. How are you feeling?

Such a cute story. Too bad, I would probably do something similar, I am such a scatter brain sometimes. I love the picture of Naomi, that is a cute idea.

Wow, very cool, very tender. Perfect baby shot. Looks to me like she has settled very comfortably into her new home.
