Ummmmmmm...let me explain.
When I was about 5 months pregnant Briella found a little pacifier attacher thingy that was a plush turtle. Within days, she began calling the baby "Turtle", and somehow, it stuck. And it was just so cute, we kind of got carried away.
The nursery, which was lady bugs for Briella, got transformed rather easily to Ladybugs and turtles!
We made blankets and burpers and hats and bought stuffed turtles....
And searched for turtle clothes....and even had others gift us not only turtle clothes, but turtle pillows, books and more!
Remember his homecoming outfit...
A closer look...
So here is "Turtle's" 2 week birthday shoot!!
Don't let that belly full of milk trick you....at his 2 week weight, he still was just below 7 lbs! And of course, momma taking all those pictures to get just the right ones is exhausting!!!
What a darling little turtle!
Now by his 3 week birthday, he had made it to just over 7 lbs!!! (my favorite homemade blanket and hat!)
And my favorite 3 week pic...all worn out again!
Just so precious!
So what do we all do between weekly birthday shoots??? Well.....
That's why I'm a little behind on blogging!!!! But oh, so worth it! We are all loving finally having him here, and even the brothers will let me pose them for pictures with the littlest Washburn guy! Wait till you see the Mother's Day post....
Here's a sneak peak!
Who knew a turtle could be so adorable?!?!?!?
