Photo Freak On The Loose!

Progress: The babe actually slept in his own bassinet, on his SIDE (not his tummy, where he sleeps really well, but I'm too freaked out to let him do it when I'm asleep) for two hours last night. I slept in my bed, with newly washed sheets, without a baby touching me for two straight hours. Well, actually it was only 1 hour and 45 minutes, but I'm rounding up. It was bliss. Then, of course, all hell broke loose and he was up twice before being awake nonstop from 3 to 5 a.m. So, at 4 a.m. I was down here on the computer, eating a snack and wondering when he'd ever let me go back to sleep. And he wouldn't sleep on his own the rest of the night. Oh well.


So, my mom and I took a ton of newborn photos when Andrew was 9 days old. But, I haven't posted them on here because I am trying to decide which one to use as a baby announcement. But, I've decided I need your help! Which one is cutest for a baby announcement? Please vote! I haven't cropped or enhanced them yet, because I only want to do it for one photo, not eight. But I will sharpen the image up and zoom in/crop out my shirt sleeves, etc. I may go for black and white, or I may not. I'm not sure!

Or, you can also vote for none of the above and suggest something different!

I like 2 and 8. But they are all precious and which ever one you choose will make the recipient all squishy with baby-love inside.

Man, hang in there on the sleep thing. Isn't it amazing how much we can accomplish on so little sleep?

Justine said...

4 is my favorite! But 2 is sweet too. Aw, heck, they're all cute!

2 and 8 are my favorites. But, I also like 4, and 1 and 6, and 7... They are all cute. Yeah, 2 and 8. I like those the best. No maybe 4. Oh shit Katie he is so cute it doesn't matter.

It might also be cute to to an annoucement with 2 pictures. One of him solo and one of him and Becca Bo.

Random- my security word is actually OSU FL... Go BUCKS!

Ann said...

My favorites are 3 and 4. One with him a Becca would also be cute. For Jason we used a family picture, which we also haven't sent out yet...

nana said...

Pictures 4 and 8 are my favorites.

What an adorable sleeping baby! He'd be even more adorable if he'd conk out like this from midnight to 6AM!

MaryB said...

Obviously, I am a weirdo, because my favorite was not mentioned by anyone else, but my vote is for #5.

That being said, with a phto subject that precious, you can NOT go wrong with ANY picture!

I second the idea for a picture with big sis as an additional picture.

Jen said...

Adorable. All of them! But I like 5 and 7 the best, I think. Hard to choose!

I hope he starts sleeping more for you soon. Sleep deprivation is the worst form of torture.

I love them all. 4,5,8 are my favs.

Erin said...

4, 7 or 8.

Kristi said...

I love 4. He looks so sweet and peaceful! I think 3 is great too.

So, I might have to stop reading your blog. Andrew is so tiny and cute. He makes me want another one!!!

Tracy said...

3 and 4

Erin said...

You really can't go wrong here. But my favorites, after careful consideration, are numbers 4 and 8.

joanna said...

7 is my favorite. I think a collage would be a nice announcement.

Grammy Bonnie said...

Three or Four for me!

The Quinn Report said...

3,4,7,& 8 are my FAVORITE! 2, 2, sweet!

Swistle said...

Man, they're ALL good. You could choose any one of those and have a success.

My favorites are 2 (where he looks like he's peering around saying, "What IS this place? Where AM I? And who are YOU?" and both 4 and 5 where you can see the whole scrumptious newborn. NOM. One bite, max.

Shelley said...

I like #4 best.

lost in space said...

1 or 4

Cheryl said...

1 and 4 for me. He is so yummy Katie that I'm starting to look more forward to ours coming soon. Lack of sleep, chaos and all. I want to squeeze him!

ash said...

5 is precious :)

Becs said...

#4 He is SO cute!!

Laura said...

I like 5 for an announcement because it shows all his wrinkly parts and his feet are relaxed (unlike #4). The newborn, raisin look is adorable. I miss that.

Number 4 is my favorite on the cuteness scale. Reminds of an Anne Geddes photo, without the butterfly costume. Number one has the advantage of showing his eyes open, but does look as if he has a bit of a hangover in that one. (Being born is hard work, too.)

Here's hoping he'll soon be sleeping through the night in real life, too.

Love,
(Great) Aunt Linda

Trishy said...

So hard to choose, but I love 4 & 7! Can't go wrong with any of them, though, he is precious!!!

Vicki said...

#4 for sure!

Angie said...

I like 6!

Reading over the comments, I realize that we are no help. Everyone likes all of them!
