sweet baby james

I took a half day off work today to travel up to NKY to meet sweet baby James.

Around 4:00 am on 3.24.10, my dearest friends Cory and Dusty welcomed their first child into the world.

I was so excited to be able to meet him before E and I leave tomorrow for Costa Rica. 

When I saw him today, I just kept thinking "he's so new." I'm not sure if that's the way most people describe a baby, but that's what kept coming to my mind. 

A couple of hours after baby James entered the world, his mother Cory, sent out a message saying "he's perfect." As I drove to work that morning I kept thinking about that and how God truly knit James together perfectly. I usually not a mushy or even a baby person, but I cried thinking about it.
He is perfect. 
While I hung out with him, I also took advantage of the opportunity to test out the new fixed 50mm lens E bought me for my bday {which is tomorrow}!!

Here are a few of my favorite shots ...


Sweet baby James: 
I can't wait to watch you grow up. I can't wait to watch my future babies play with you. You have two of the most amazing parents in the world. They are going to love you, care for all your needs, teach you the Word of God, and grow you into a faithful follower of Christ.
  You're going to be a real heart breaker...
