I can’t stop taking pictures of Brooke, it is quite the addiction.

You don’t take pictures of yourself with your baby at 3 in the morning just because you think her little arm being raised up is the cutest thing?

Oh how sweet! I love the close up of her face – she is such a happy looking little girl. My mom just went by as I looked at the pictures and said that she is soo cute and adorable, too!

SO CUTEEE- I had the same hair as a baby! basically Brooke is gonna be AWESOME!

So so sweet! Makes me miss my little girl being a newborn… I couldn’t stop smelling her! Seeing how much you love your baby just melts my heart :)

most of us love baby pictures so I don’t see this as a problem. I can say that I didn’t take as many with the second as I did the first. I did have more formal pictures taken, just didn’t take as many “my camera is attached to my hand” pictures.

Keep ’em coming! :D

She is the cutest! I don’t think she’s a big fan of the whole bath thing, though. :)

She is such a doll. Congrats on your new bundle of joy. It has been a while since I have been able to read blogs (my sis’ wedding was last week) and it looks like you are moving to the Bay Area. Welcome to my hood :) I hope you enjoy your new home. If you ever have any questions, let me know!!

Every time I see my goddaughter, I want to take pictures of her. It never gets old!

Omigosh Janae, she is the most precious thing. I cannot wait to hear all about her. She’s going to be such a superstar (more than she already is). I love her name and you and Billy will be the best, and most fun parents ever. I’m so excited for you guys! :)

Reply

She is absolutly beautiful!! Love the pictures, keep them coming!!! So happy for you. :)

Reply

I fully approve this addiction :)

Reply

You both look amazing. And now I’m super antsy to have my baby! Only 10ish more weeks…

Reply

One of my most favorite things to do with my daughter was dress her up in adorable dresses, prop her up on the back of the sofa and take a gazillion pictures.
Isn’t that what you are supposed to do when you are home with a newborn? ;)
Congrats again Janae! She is a beauty!

Reply

PRECIOUS!!!!

She is so sweet, Janae! Newborns are too sweet!!!

Reply

Precious!!!!! Post more pics!!

She is so adorable! You have jumped into the role of “mom” so easily. Live all the pictures :)

There is quite possibly nothing more beautiful than watching parents interact with their baby. Ours are almost five now and I will miss them like crazy when they start preschool in a week.

Reply

That smile just melts my heart. Gas or jokes…. doesn’t matter what causes that adorable face. Keep ’em coming, Brooke!

Reply

Ummm all those pics DEFINITELY needed to be taken! My favorite is the second one. Gosh she is just so tiny and perfect. Enjoy these moments with her before she grows big and starts kindergarten next week. Ack!

Reply

Brooke is so beautiful – just like her mom! you and Billy should be so proud.

Reply

The pictures are all so adorable that I can’t pick a favourite. Her face on the one after the bath seems to be saying “what the heck just happened to me?!?!”. As a new Mom, you have the right to post 1173 pix a day before it becomes “to much”, so go for it.

Reply

She is seriously so beautiful! I love all that hair, and that smile. Congrats, so happy for you guys.

Reply

I’m here for cute baby pictures and you did not disappoint! :)

Oh my goodness! Look how much she has changed in not even a week!!! I’m amazed at how quickly they change…she is just getting cuter!!! :) Love your little family <3

Soon you are gonna wonder where the time has gone and then realize you’ve been staring at that sweet baby face (and belly and toes…) and still could, forever!

It’s so great to see the pics and how happy you all are. Congratulations!!

Reply

She looks as surprised as I do when I actually have time to shower hahaha.
So cute, please keep them coming!

Reply

She is absolutely so precious. I am so happy to finally get to see a picture with her eyes wide open! That’s what I have been waiting for. I wish I lived closer and I would be right over to help with everything. I love unpacking new houses and getting rid of boxes. But the bonus would be getting to hold Brooke Lin.

Love! Never too many photos :-)

What an absolutely adorable baby and mom! Congrats. Happy that your baby is healthy and beautiful!

Reply

Don’t ever stop and a piece of advise start NOW with putting them in an album or scrapbook you will be happy you did in 15 years. Nothing like a cute baby picture expspecially when they are sleeping. And when they become teenagers you can look at them and say ahhh ok this is why I am not going to kill you because at one time you were cute and one day you will be again or give me a grand baby that will be. Lol

Reply

Janae! Congrats, congrats, congrats! I am so excited for you. She looks so cute and healthy and perfect! And yes, it is so lame that the Subways in California don’t use the points cards. I have asked at several… PLUS I don’t think that Subway is as good in this state. What is up with that?! Anyway… I love your blog. Thanks for sharing. Oh, and I love your Petunia Pickle Bottom blanket and bag too. :D

I love her. That is all. :)

I don’t think it is possible to get any cuter, awwww! She is amazingly adorable and precious!

Reply

She has the same hairstyle as my son (baby #2), and I was so mad that he wasn’t a girl because it was perfect bow hair. Brooke is so lucky!

Reply

Loving these posts!

Oh she and you are so beautiful. I think her hair is so cute and i love the stretching poses. Enjoy.

Reply

So adorable!!! :)

Very cute. The spiky hair is the best, though.

Reply

I was laughing so hard at how you creeped in those pictures with her!!

Reply

She is so adorable!! Only a couple hour drive, but a free babysitter here (not joking)! I’ll give her back!

Reply

Awww she’s the cutest. Lots more pictures please.

Reply

She is a super cute baby! Absolutely adorable!

Reply

I don’t know what I love more–how insanely adorable your baby is or how completely happy you look. Motherhood is the best.

Reply

Ahh! SO PRECIOUS. You’re amazing parents. :-)
