Omaha newborn session: Awake is the new sleep

My sister’s good friend had a baby on Nov. 6 at 7:23 p.m. She weighed in at 8 lbs, 11 oz., and was 21 inches long. But she’s more than just numbers…she’s a sweet baby girl who shall have no choice but to be pals with my sister’s baby, Cailin. And her name, her beautiful name…is Ireland Grace. Her nickname is just as cute: Iggy. DON’T YOU LOVE IT!??!

I will say, Ireland was a stubborn lady. She refused to sleep.
We tried. We tried. We tried. But she was so alert. But so cute regardless.

She might look like she’s sleeping here…but she’s not. Trust me.

Mama took matters into her own hands then…

While she fed Ireland, I snapped a few of the adorableness that is her room.

This crib was made by Ireland’s grandpa!! Quite the good job in woodworking, no?

Because she was disgruntled yet again… we tried one last outfit. And I’d say this might be a familiar face on Husker fans….
