Big brother Adam announced I could meet baby "Alligator" when I arrived at the house. He proudly showed me his baby brother, and I thought Alistair was darling and oh-so-kissable. He put up a bit of a fight when it was time for his solo photos, but that meant I got to see how loved and wanted this little guy is. He did settle eventually, and I love that the session ended with a darling newborn smile. I never tire of meeting brand new babies and seeing the way a family's capacity to love instantly expands with the arrival of their little one. Alistair reminds me that love looks like patience and gentleness and kind words and a whole lot of sweetness.
