Mr. Paul's Photo Shoot

He sure is a happy guy. The nurses tell me he even smiles in his sleep at midnight in the nursery:  

I love the little lip tricks babies do in their sleep. I imagine this one is because I keep calling him "princess" (sorry, little buddy, after 3.5 years of girls-only around here, it just slips off the tongue):

Soft kisses from a big sister:

Brynn LOVES to hold her little brother and will softly stroke him--pretty much forever--until you tell her it's someone else's turn.  Her attention span for babies never ceases to amaze me:

Heidi's attention span, on the other hand, only lasts about 15 seconds (14 of which are spent reminding her that we can touch HAIR but not EYES). After that, she's off to look around for any good hospital food that I haven't finished eating:

And this face is because I wouldn't let her hold the camera. Although I have a feeling we'll see a lot more of this face when my Momma's Girl realizes that Paul is here to stay:

He is so perfect! I just love that first picture. And he looks so much like Heidi. Good job, Mama. Beautiful family!

There already a strong family resemblance in that first photo, amazing in a baby so little. He's gorgeous!!
