The Creativity Project: Pastel


The theme for April at The Creativity Project is "Pastel".
What says pastel like a brand new baby?


I got to go meet this one a few weeks ago just after his grandparents
got to the hospital with his big brothers.
The nurse was giving them their "Big Brother" bracelets at that very moment.

Checking on mom

First on their agenda was to check in with Mom to make sure she was doing OK.
(She let Dad and Gram and Gramps share Baby Brother with them 
so they wouldn't accidentally climb up on the bed and start bouncing.
Because boys.)


Next up was sharing a special gift with Baby Brother.
Because "Goodnight Moon".  Obviously.
Can a baby be without?

Gram and boys

And then there were introductions all around.
All while Baby Brother slept.

Baby Brother is in VERY good hands.


Last week I went to HOLD Baby Brother.
I've been waiting a long time for that!


He is an angel.


And as I sat there holding him,
Big Brother said, "Aren't you gonna take some pictures?"
Big Brother has known me all his life,
if you couldn't tell.


He really wanted to help me take pictures, so I handed him my phone.


And then I got distracted by the fun of Big Brother and Little brother doing what they do.
Because, uh, that's what I do.

Big Brother even asked me what that thing I was twisting was for.
So I showed him how to zoom in with my lens.
He is going to be a photographer.


Baby Brother had a happy dream,


and then a rude awakening, so I took that as my cue.

This baby is amazingly blessed with parents and grandparents
and oh so many people in his life
who will treasure the beautiful way God made him
and teach him that Jesus loves him more than life itself.

All of this (sort of) pastel cuteness was brought to you by The Creativity Project.
Next up in the circle is Pam, who, by the looks of her post,
 might have been vacationing with me unaware recently!
Her photos are dreamy!
From there you can visit all of the regular contributors.
We would love to have you post your own pastel photo
on The Creativity Project Facebook Page.
