Brady Taylor

checking himself out in the mirror

Almost 8 weeks ago, we welcomed Brady Taylor into the world at 7 pounds 1 ounce, 19.5 inches long.  It's incredible how much love and joy this tiny little guy has brought to our lives. The instant we met him, we felt like he filled a space in our hearts we didn't even know was there and we suddenly couldn't imagine how we ever lived without him.  He's growing and changing every day and now weighs in at 11 pounds!  His current interests are smiling, cooing, cuddling, and checking himself out in the mirror.  These photos represent his first 8 weeks, in chronological order.
