Welcome to the world, Bernard Bardot!

Today, January 10th, is my due date. However, we’ve been lucky enough to have spent the last three weeks and three days getting to know our beautiful son, Bernard. He was born on December 18th, 2013 and we are absolutely in love. Below are a few photos from his first three weeks of life.

Geoff and I fell in love with the name “Bernard” when we read the meaning of the name, “Bold as a Bear”. We LOVED the nickname “Bear” and really loved that Bernard was a grandpa name. It really suits him as we think he has an old man face. 🙂 I did a quickie photo shoot and made the first three images below when he was 3 days old.

The little orange hat was such a big part of his persona in those early early days. I had to make sure to get a photo with him in it. It was SO HUGE on his tiny head, but it is starting to fit a little better!

Geoff snapped this one with his iPhone. Bernard is so tiny in his crib! He really hasn’t used it at all yet!

Bear was our early Christmas present! We enjoyed a nice quiet Christmas at home as a little family.

And a nice quiet New Years Eve at home too.

He was not a huge fan of his first bath.

But he looked so cute all bundled up in a towel right after.

When he was two and a half weeks old I finally did an official photo shoot with him.

I could not resist making him a mini-Geoff for the photo below.

And finally Geoff took this photo today, on the day he was due. We could not be happier to have him in our lives.!

Oh my this post is just too much cuteness for me to handle. Bear is perfect in every way and we are excited to meet it soon. I remember when Everly’s hats fit her the exact same way, thankfully it is warm enough here to not have to worry about their loose fit too much!

Congratulations to you both on your “Little Bear”, he is the cutest! Can’t wait to see more posts on this little guy!
