This little guy was so into the world around him. Not wanting to miss a thing, he laid awake even with all my usual tricks to getting a baby to sleep through my posing. You see, getting a baby to sleep isn’t as easy as you may think. I come to the house armed not only with props and blankets but also bring my handy rice bag, and an additional space heater. Often I’ll plug in some sounds of the womb just to seal the deal. Usually the heat, and a good feed is more than enough to get a newborn to sleep – especially if they are in the first week. D was one week old and even though I didn’t get my normal posed sleeping pics he was content to let me snap away while he chilled. I LOVE his smirk in the last shot. He has two older brothers and I can just tell he’s going to give as good as he gets!
