Dear Jonah

Dear Jonah –

Your mom labored hard with you.  HARD.  56 hours hard.  She wanted all the right things for you all the way through her pregnancy, up to and including your birth.  She was a champ, and you were patient if not stubborn.

When you’d been in the world about 24 hours, your folks let me come to the hospital for a visit and your first photo-shoot.  You were charming, and squirmy, and love being swaddled.   I swear you looked right at me as I was pressing my lens up against your bassinet, and that you told me you’d take good care of your folks while they settled into life with you.  I trust you will.

Here are a few images from the first full day of your life – oh – and in case you’re wondering – the first one is a yawn, not a scream.  Even your crying sounded like a song.  You must get that from your beautiful momma.
