"The Chubster"

We spent our Spring Break last week visiting our family in Maryland.

It was a lovely vacation. And, we packed it full of some really fun outings and firsts and good times. I hope to post about some of them here shortly.

But, one of the best things about our visit was getting to spend time with the newest member of our family: my new little nephew, Kullen.

He is my sister-in-law, Emily's five-month old baby.

And for reasons you're about to see, my boys have lovingly nicknamed him, "The Chubster."

I grabbed my camera one afternoon when he was visiting and took some photos of him.

And, I think these are my all-time favorite baby photos I've ever taken.

Because:

1. This baby is one of the most adorable and precious little ones I've ever laid my eyes on. Or smooched. Or covered in zerberts.

2. I'm finally starting to get the hang of photographing babies. Lighting, composition, post-editing. What works and what doesn't. Thanks to my 365 project (and a little guy named Whit), I've been practicing. A lot.

This is Kullen.

Can you tell that he's Max's cousin? Cheek-o-rama!

This is his Easter outfit. Who can stand this hat? Oh my word.

And, this smile? I'm telling you, this little boy is one of the cutest, squishiest babies I've ever seen.

This is Uncle Jason (my husband) getting him to giggle. Love.

He has the most perfectly shaped mouth. And, nose. And, eyes. And, THOSE CHEEKS!

Help me, Rhonda.

I might have tried to eat him. I simply couldn't help myself.

But, it was these wrists that almost did me in for good.

Look at that chub. He is most definitely, without a doubt, unequivocally, "The Chubster". Now and forevermore.


Photobucket


He has such a sweetness about him.


Photobucket


And, the brightest, happiest eyes that just ooze joy.

But, of his chubby cheeks and munchable wrists and bright eyes and belly giggles...

I simply love him most because he's Kullen. The joy in my sister's heart. The newest little boy that God has given to our family.

And, I love being his Aunt Sarah.

  2. So it may be a fitting thing to start a second career. Good luck with that. The reason why audemars piguet replica items as mentioned in the breitling replica uk are sought after is due to the fragility of bakelite in said applications, in no way is it because it is a superior material. It is basically pretty bad plastic, before rolex submariner replica were industrialised as an alternative. The use on this watch is nostalgic and odd. Not only is it a spectacular way to tell the world that you make poor purchasing decisions, but it also simultaneously a unique conversation starter provided that conversation revolves around terrible rolex replica. And very often, after several minutes of watching, I tell myself that the film negative of what I am watching should never seen light. Probably preferred by people who have a lot of swiss replica watches to spend on a dress watch, and want one from brand that everyone will recognise.
