Thank You, Storks!

I was so excited to get a package in the mail from my Storks! I was even more excited when I opened it and saw what they had sent the boys... Personalized Big Brother/Little Brother shirts!!!

And I LOVE them!

I tried to organize their first "brother" photo shoot while they were wearing the shirts, but it wasn't incredibly successful. As hard as it is to get Jack Jack to cooperate with my camera, imagine how hard it is to get him to cooperate at the same time as I'm trying to get a newborn to cooperate! I did get some cute shots, though!

This one ends up being my favorite! I just love Jack's face here :)

Of course, I love this one, too! I didn't even have to suggest that he give his brother a kiss. This is usually where Jack's face can be found when he's holding/looking at/thinking about Samuel... right in his brother's face! He adores his baby brother :) And Sam tolerates his big brother very nicely ;)

I love this one, too!

We tried this pose in order to show off their shirts the best. It didn't work that great because Jack kept wanting to either watch TV or rock his chair, and Sam's pants were slippery and he kept sliding on the wood floor. Dave tried to get him to hold still, but that only resulted in me getting his hands in all the pictures. But I still love them.

Then Dave suggested having them lay on the ground, but that didn't really work, either. But, at least you can see their shirts, even if they're upside-down!

So, the photoshoot was only semi-successful. I'm hoping that eventually either I'll get better at photoshoots with both the boys together, or that eventually they'll get better at cooperating! Of course, I hope I'll still get tons of goofy shots, too! I love that it shows their personalities! Well, Jack's personality, anyway... Sam's will come out soon ;)

Thanks for the shirts, Storks!!! We love them!!!


  1. You are SOOO lucky that your Jack will pose like that! THOSE ARE A-DORABLE REBECCA!!!!! You are an amazing photographer and have two GORGEOUS boys to take pictures of! Glad you liked them. = ) XOXO

  2. I am glad that you have such special friends. The shirts are so cute. The photo's are terrific!

  3. Hang in there, Rebec - it took until Brendan's ONE YEAR photos to get a really decent shot of the two boys together. :) I think these are ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! Collin loves to give Brendan random hugs and has even started coming over to me, rubbing my belly and saying, "I love your baby. My give the baby kisses!" I just love big brothers :)

  4. LOVE the pics!!! Sara did a GREAT job picking out those shirts!!!
