My 6-Week-Old, Up Close and Personal

Last week, Nicole posted a great blog entry on how to photograph your baby. Among her list was photographing your baby up close. I think every mother must spend the good majority of those first precious weeks with her new baby studying their every feature, memorizing the exact shape of their eyes and the curve of their nose.

After the jump, I spend some time cataloguing my favorite features on my sweet baby boy (plus a photo that makes me laugh every time I look at it!)

  • Hand dimples & rubberband wrists 1 of 6
    Hand dimples & rubberband wrists
    He's just beginning to get those little fat lines that make it look like he has rubberbands around his chubby wrists. And the dimples where his knuckles are...oof, they're enough to make the Stay Puff Marshmellow Man jealous.
  • Leg Chub 2 of 6
    Leg Chub
    Our daughter had leg chub in epic proportions as an infant, and it looks like Arlo is well on his way to joining her.
  • Tiny Hand 3 of 6
    Tiny Hand
    We hold hands a lot. There's something about having a hand that small wrapped around my finger. The reality of it is, I'm the one who's really wrapped.
  • Rosebud Lips 4 of 6

    Why does his breath smell so good? I made my husband smell it today and he agreed. It's about a thousand times better than puppy breath.
  • Oh, those feet. 5 of 6
    Oh, those feet.
    Always stretching and finding ways to kick off whatever blanket I lay across him. I have to resist the urge to put the entire thing in my mouth.
  • I adore you, little man 6 of 6
    I adore you, little man
    I laugh at you every day and I'm so glad I get to be your mama.
