Piper is already 6 weeks old, has lost half her impressive newborn locks and quadrupled in size (well, she hasn't grown quite that much, but her number of chins really has quadrupled). She and her sisters are our dream come true, and I am so happy to share (finally) her birth announcement with you.
We prepped Piper's nursery before her arrival but left the queen bed set up for guests until we move her out of our room. Between great light, the bold wall color (Blueberry by Benjamin Moore) and the large bed, we had a perfect backdrop for a meaningful lifestyle session. Piper is wrapped in one of my favorite scarves.
Somehow our wild older girls have had a calming influence on Piper since day one. She is actually smiling in the photo with them, despite being just three days old. Cricket and Nora are smiling out of pride—and also the knowledge that they would earn the cupcakes our neighbors brought over if they were on their best behavior for the session. Bribery is the only way, my friends.
Thank you for sharing in our joy as we watch this new life unfold. It's always magical, isn't it?
