A Visit with Baby Mila

I made another visit to the hospital to see my new great niece, Mila yesterday. Now that she's out of the incubator she gets to be held a lot more, so I wanted to make sure the new parents had lots of not-from-a-cell-phone photos of this amazing time.

This one had to be the catch of the day:

I'm so happy to have gotten it. I can't imagine a more perfect first family portrait. It makes me so happy, except that it makes me sad that I don't have a similar photo of my family. But, I think I'll just choose to be happy for them and link it up for my Sweet Shot this week.

You didn't think you were going to get away with looking at only one photo when a baby's involved, though? Did you?
Needless to say, I got lots more.

I got some one-on-one's with mom and dad, too.

Dad got busy taking care of her needs:

Then I captured this sequence while he wrapped her back into her blanket.

While I was there, Grandma and Grandpa showed up and then Aunt Kacie and Uncle Ryan. We had to take turns seeing her since there are only 4 guests allowed in her little area.

Mila had the hiccups, which got a big reaction from these two. Cute and cuter.

Ok, I have more, but I'll leave it at that lest I tire your scrolling muscles. Maybe I'll post a few Mila portraits tomorrow.


  1. That is one happy little family! If these pictures are anything to go by little Mila is well loved :-)I am sure they will treasure these.
