Day 7 -- Picture day!!

It's really cold here, and we can't justify taking Little Elvis out into the awful icy weather to get a professional picture made.

But, we do have three digital cameras (my parents, our digital camera and our digitial camcorder which also takes stills.) We also have both of my parents and lots of soft blankets that we can pose him on. And my mother apparently had my picture made at Olan Mills every month to six weeks when I was a baby. She knows her stuff.

So, we decided to take "professional" pictures of Little Elvis this morning.

He's still a little small for his nicer clothes, but one of my co-workers got him a really cute little velour outfit with a puppy on it that fits fairly well. We dressed him up in that and draped his car seat in a super plush blue blanket that a friend of Bob's gave us.

Then Bob, my dad and I all started snapping. We clicked a lot, and my mom's hands ended up in several of the pictures, but we did end up with a few that are definitely Thank you card and baby announcement worthy.

Now I just have to get to writing those Thank you notes....

By the way, he is the MOST photogenic baby.
