Amateur Christmas Pics

Last week the PICU child life specialist wanted to know if we would be interested in having our pictures taken by a professional photographer.  I told her sure, why not.  Apparently, there are several photographers that donate their time and services to families in the hospital.  Later I found out that you had to meet a certain criteria.  #1, you won't be home for Christmas.  #2, you haven't been home.  #3, you've been in the hospital for a while.  I guess ten months constitute a "while".

December 10th was picture day!  The nurse and I kept going back and forth on whether or not we should drug Sophia.  Our concern was that she would get worked up because of the excitement and started having respiratory issues.  If she were sedated a little more, she would last long enough to get through the shoot.  Don't judge.  If you saw Sophia in full diva mode you would think about drugging her, too!  Anyway, at the end I decided against the drugs.  She had had a great day so far and was feeling so much better.  I took my chances and baby girl did great.  When the photographer showed up, I put Sophia's dress on and the fun began!  

The pictures below are the one's from my personal camera.  The photographer is going to supply me with a cd of the images that he took.  We had a little fun taking pics before and after he left.

Oppa Gangnam style!

 She opened her eyes for a moment and it was nice.

What?!  I got a smile, too!

This is one my favorites.

Just enjoying her :o)

Too cute. I love that the girls get to get right up in bed with Sofia. I love their dresses. Can't wait to see more pictures.
