GPOMW – First Week Photo Edition

Now I understand why so few photos are taken during the first few weeks of a baby’s birth.  First off, the baby is often asleep.  Seriously, there are only so many photos you can take of a sleeping baby.  I suppose you can take photos in various outfits, but nonetheless they are still sleeping.  The second reason so few photos are taken is that you – the parents – are really freakin’ exhausted!  So when your baby is awake, and you have you’re camera ready, capturing the moment in a photo is a gem.

This photo of Mia was taken on July 8, 2010.  At this point she was one week old. She was very active for a few hours before falling asleep once more.
