sweet, snuggly, squishy newborn pics

Just a few pictures from this last week. You don't mind, do you?

A late afternoon nap in an adorable outfit from auntie Heather (organic cotton and Made In Canada... may have to figure out how to sketch this pattern to make more, I love it so much). The sun shining in was so delicious... and who can resist that arms-above-head-can-finally-stretch-out newborn pose? The blanket Eloise is laying on is also from my sister, knit when Liam was born in 2003.

Another nap on a sunny afternoon here in Bogota (which has been happening more and more often as of late... we don't miss the rain). Ignore my zebra print pyjamas and focus instead on the sweet little booties Eloise is wearing. A gift from the lovely Jessica. Knit in Saskatchewan with wool from Saskatchewan sheep. Perfect. Just perfect. I might need these in multiple sizes and colours also, so will have to get over my fear of knitting booties.

That same night, Liam spent almost an hour just chilling with Eloise on his lap. Light from the lamp over his head was a bit harsh, but I'm still totally in love with these images. Liam is so sweet and attentive with his baby sister. The other day we were driving to his friend's house and she was fussing (she HATES the car seat) and I could hear him in the back seat whispering to her, "Shhhh, shhhh, baby. It's okay. Liam's here. Big brother's here."

See that hairline? Those cowlicks and widow's peak? Score one for the Bundy side.
