Photo Shoot

I really wanted some newborn pictures of Sawyer with the boys.  So...I decided to give photography a whirl and to my amazement I love the pictures!  Here's what I did:
1. Look on Pinterest for pose ideas.
2. Borrow the parents' nice camera.
3. Wait for perfect weather.
4. Shamelessly bribe the children with suckers for their cooperation!
Sawyer was one week old in these pictures.  Can't believe he'll already be one month old this Thursday!
  Adam was not prompted to give Sawyer such affection in the following pictures.  Both he and Luke love on Sawyer all day every day!  Fortunately, so far Sawyer tolerates all of their "love" pretty well.

Welcome Baby Sawyer!

One week ago, a sweet baby boy was welcomed into our family!  Sawyer Matthew Eigsti made his appearance (at last!) on October 24 at 8:57 a.m., weighing 7 lbs 13 oz and 19 1/2 inches long.  It did not take any time at all for us to fall in love with him! Because he was week late, I was scheduled to be induced on the 24th, but fortunately went into labor on my own and we arrived at the hospital at 1:30 a.m. instead of our scheduled 5:30 a.m. induction!  Everything went so smoothly and we are praising God for a healthy, strong little man.

The boys were so excited to meet Sawyer!

I can't believe how much his looks have changed in just the first week!

Sneaky peak: This picture may or may not end up on a Christmas card.  I decided to try my hand at photography this afternoon and came up with several adorable keepers.  I love this one. Welcome to our family, Sawyer!
