Introducing my new bundle of joy…Simon. He has chosen to do things his own way from the get go. My first three kids were all 10+ days early, but Simon decided to show up fashionable late (two days to be exact). He was my biggest baby by far, weighing in at 9 pounds, 2 ounces and was LONG, 22 inches! It is no wonder I was so miserable those last few weeks! Labor and delivery was surprisingly smooth though! I got to the hospital close to 8pm and he arrived right around 1:30am, after just a couple of pushes! We are all so happy to have him him. He sleeps horribly at night, but we all still love him to pieces, especially my kids!
I have to tell you though, Simon is the HARDEST baby I have ever photographed, and that is saying something. It doesn’t help that I am T.I.R.E.D., but he has zero interest in being naked, being touched or moved while he is sleeping or being cooperative in any way when I try to photograph him. It took a lot of patience and work to get the few shots that I did! Good thing I had him here every day to try again and again!
