Alaina's Newborn Pictures

I can't believe I'm just now sharing these pictures! My brother's girlfriend came over when Alaina was about 3 weeks old to take some pictures of her. I was really hoping Alaina would sleep through the photoshoot and that we could get sweet pictures of her just curled in a little ball.... yeah, that didn't happen. Alaina was just having a rough morning, and she was crying inconsolably for the first part of the day. I really didn't think we were going to get any good pictures, but she did calm down enough for us to get some sweet shots eventually :)

(By the way, I get SO frustrated trying to upload pictures these days... they always get so screwed up and don't upload in any particular order. But then when I try to move them around, everything messes up. So these are in a funky order, but I just don't have time to fool with it right now. Grrr.)
I think these sister pictures are so sweet. They crack me up, though, because the headband was supposed to be for Alaina. But my little gypsy girl confiscated it ;)

She was kind of done by the time we put the dress on her. I wanted a few of her in this dress because it was mine when I was a baby and Aubrey wore it home from the hospital.

Sweet big brother!

Alaina's hair looks SO red in this picture. It never looked that red in person, although I would be thrilled if it did. I LOVE red hair :)
Family shots were kind of a bust. Don't you just love Aubrey's facial expression?

So there are some of my favorites from Alaina's newborn pictures! We used a couple for her birth announcement (that I need to post too). So happy to have these pictures of my sweet family! :)

Beautiful! I love the sister pictures and that's hysterical that she took the headband.
