~Baby Mary's 6 weeks pics~

~So, I decided to snap some pics of Baby Mary (to save spending money at JCPennies.) And then I decided to throw Elijah in there too. It wasn't as easy as I thought it was going to be. I had pictured that I would simply get Baby Mary to sleep, snap a few pictures and Voila...I'd post them on my blog. NOT! It was a 40 minute affair, with lots of interuptions, a hair dryer going some of the time (to help distract baby and keep her calm, Thanks for the idea, Janie), one girl helping arrange Elijah and Mary, the other girl holding onto the white sheet so it wouldn't fall...and lots of trying to get Elijah to be still and Baby Mary to lay the right way, etc. =D But, Jesus helped and I'm happy with how these turned out. Enjoy!
~This is One of my favorites. Every time we'd ask Elijah to kiss baby Mary...he'd give her a quick peck and pull away. So, it is a miracle that we finally got this one. =)~
~I was going to lay Mary on his back ASLEEP and all would go smoothly...but she never would fall asleep. So, we tried it with her awake and she kept moving around and falling. But, I thought this one was still cute so I'm posting it.~

~And did I mention that Baby Mary is sleeping anywhere from 5 to 9 hours straight through every night?! She's a keeper!! =)~

Beautiful pictures! She reminds me of someone but I can't quite place her yet. Maybe Laura when she was a baby? Beautiful blessing you have.

And why would you need J.C. Pennys! You did great and "our" sweet little ones that "we let you keep for us" are just that! Oh and did I say precious as well! I meant all five of them the two pictured and the others that were the photographer's helpers. :-) How we love all of you and so glad that our Heavenly Father loves you even more than that. THAT'S A LOT! Moma

Heather, these two grandbabies are absolutely adorable in these pictures! I'm so happy you took the time to take pictures of them.
Mary is growing so much, and her looks are changing a bit. It really makes me want to hold her when I see how cute she is with her thick dark hair.
And, Elijah...that child is just the picture of joy and sunshine! He looks so sweet with his blond hair that I can hardly bear it.
I miss each of your children very much! And, I am so looking forward to seeing them.
I often thank Jesus for the five years we were priviledged to live by our grandchildren when you all lived in Phoenix.
Every one of you are our precious and very loved family!
Mom D

Hi Heather -- Mary is beautiful as are all your children. It looks like she has the Sutherland-shaped mouth that is co cute! Little Elijah is such a little cutie, too. Hope all of you are doing well. We've been enjoying Dan's sister Donna the past two weeks but she is going home tomorrow--we'll miss her now. Congratulations on your beautiful family. Love, Aunt Ellen
