This sweet little boy came in wide awake. We tried everything to get him to sleep, but he wasn't having it. Honestly, I didn't mind at all because he was simply adorable and would just look right up at me with those big eyes. He did seem to snooze off a few times, but he actually was asleep with his eyes open too! While it's easier to pose newborns when they're asleep, I do have to admit, it is always nice to get a few of them awake. In this case, we got a few with him asleep, or blinking haha!
And how appropriate to get ready for this holiday weekend than to honor this little boy's daddy who serves in our military. Wishing everyone a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.
