Here are a few pictures from Finn’s newborn photoshoot we did at home during his first week.

Finn’s first days at home

We brought Finn home on 3/22 right after lunch. Harper was still napping, but the cats were quite interested in this new creature.

We showed Finn his room, but I don’t think he saw much.

I think he has his daddy’s feet.

Having my mom here for the week was a huge help. She cooked up a storm, cleaned, played with Harper, and rocked the baby so I could nap each day. When Harper was born, I didn’t think I needed to nap. But this time I was smart and prioritized a short nap each day and that made a world of difference in my mood! I was surprised at how easy the first week was and I attribute it mostly to help from my mom and Drew, a nap, and being more relaxed the second time around.

We took our first walk outside. It was a short walk – it was already pretty hot and we were overdressed.

Harper immediately warmed up to him now that he was home. She asked to hold him many times and gave him kisses.

These are the moments I was waiting for and thought about while I was pregnant. These two are going to be best friends!

Each day when she wakes up and when she gets home from school, she first asks where baby Finnegan is. She loves all the little noises he makes and when he cries she tells us he needs his paci.

Finn didn’t enjoy his first bath too much, nor any subsequent baths. He likes it better when they’re over and he is dry and clothed.
