You know the saying…babies that are born within a year of each other are called Irish twins. Well, this sweet baby girl was born 1 year and 5 days after her older sister. I would say they are Irish twins, but Dad is Polish, so I think it is more appropriate to call them Polish twins. You may remember her older sister’s newborn session from last year. She had the most hair I’d seen on a newborn. She might as well have been the Rapunzel of babies because now at a year old, her hair is down her back! But like so many 1-year-olds, she had absolutely no desire to take pictures. She was more interested in going up and down the stairs during the session. We decided to focus on baby girl C and see if she would do some poses for us.
C was born at 31 weeks and spent a month in NICU. By the time we got her in the studio, she was already 2.5 months old. This still put her right around the time she would have been born. Typically, 2.5 months is an age that is really in between. No longer a newborn, but yet not doing much developmentally to do a 3-4 month session. So I really wasn’t sure what she would let us do!
Although she fought the sleep at first, she finally caved in and she was so easy to curl up! The only thing holding her back were all the adorable rolls she has! I’m not used to curling up a baby into a newborn shot, with feet tucked, and seeing all the wonderful chub! I think she gained her weight back pretty fast, don’t you think??
