Faces Only a Mother Could Love...

Or anyone else who appreciates pictures of amazing beautiful babies. I tell you, it's hard to be grumpy even when you're sleep deprived in the middle of the night when this is what you're staying up for.

Grant's mad photo-shopping skillz make these pictures seem to be taken at something like 10am. But it's really 3am and dark.

I always like to save the best for last, and this one is my favorite in this little group of shots. It might be one of my favorites period. She makes the greatest faces!

Even when she crosses her eyes, it's stinkin' cute...

I've been so grateful to have Grant home with me the past 3 weeks while we get settled in with our little girl. He goes back to work tomorrow and unfortunately that means that the opportunity for more shots like this will be much more sparse...he's such a good Daddy!

Have I ever mentioned how much I enjoy the fact that Grant is such a shutterbug? Seriously. So. Much. Fun.

We have this picture of a sleeping little angel because this is how she was when we showed her to someone from church who came by to drop off dinner for us and he just took a look at Kendra and said, "She's so cute..." and just got the camera to record it.

Can you tell we're having some fun being parents? Such a blast. We still bust a gut laughing out loud every time she poos while we're paying attention--and we've both dealt with blow-out, up-the-back diapers that involved more urine or poo while we changed the diaper. But it's still the most fun either of us have ever had. The hardest work, for sure...but the most fun.

Yep, the hardest work but the most fun you have ever had or will ever had. It is a lifetime journey full of Joy and work, and so worthwhile. Enjoy. It goes by too fast. Darling faces, sleeping daddy and child looks so peaceful. Love ya'all.

Mom, Dad, Kristina and I were all huddled over Mom's laptop when we read this post for the first time and we had a nice little discussion about how cute Kendra is.

Then Mom stayed and reread it several times before she could be torn away from the computer :)

Just thought you might like to know than many a mile away many people are adoring your little girl.

Those are adorable pictures. I'm very impressed with your photography and photoshop skills! But mostly I'm just impressed at what a beautiful baby you two had. She's cute!
