Zion

Today I took Zion for his two week check-up. He was:

7 pounds 5.5 ounces
20 inches long

This means that he has gained more than an ounce a day.

He is still sleeping really well, and is a wittle pwecious sugar-wuggar. :) :) :) Smooch smooch smooch to that kid.

Your pictures of him have been so beautiful. LOVE that first one. How do you get that gorgeous lighting? Do I need to buy another lens?

Candice - thanks!! Actually, yes, you do need to buy another lens, but it's not too expensive - usually less than $100. It's a 50mm/1/4 aperture - and it is AWESOME for indoor shots to catch good lighting. If you go to Pioneer Woman where she talks about her lenses, and look at her examples, you can see how she uses the same lens to catch indoor pictures. I think, with kids, it is so nice to have.

Also, that first picture was also brightened and I think had it's contrast adjusted with Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0 - another thing I just love to pieces.

I vote for # 1, 3, 4 and 6!
They are all cute!!

Oh wait, I was wrong - it's a 50 mm/1.8 aperture.
