Patrick's first photos

I am so excited!!!  Today Patrick's belly plate arrived from the uber talented Lana from Lanasline on Etsy.  With my awesome package came his gorgeous belly plate with umbilical cord and clip *squeel!*, a hospital cap, hospital blanket, birth certificate, hospital bracelet, powder wafer and nappy. As soon as I saw the package at my door I raced inside and ripped it open.  Then I set about creating his photoshoot.

So here he is, all new and smelling lovely on the hospital bed.  Wrapped up in his blanket to keep warm and his belly is peeking through.  The girls are totally fascinated in his umbilical cord and I get to tell them stories of they day they were born.  I still have their clips to show them.
Here you can see his little ankle bracelet and tootsies.  His hair is damp from his first bath and he's all squirmy while he's being dried.
He has soft mottling on his tummy, just like his arms and legs, and a hint of blue through his cord.
So there you have him - welcome to the world little Patrick!

Patrick is such a sweet newborn. I want to pick him up and hold him. You took really great pictures of him in his new "Turn your Reborn into a Newborn kit" Lana Elkins.
