10 on 10 :: 27 of 30 :: hello sloane

Oh what a day!  It’s 10 on 10 challenge day { on the weekend, yeah! } and day 27 of my 30 days of gratitude challenge and the first time I get to see my bf/sister’s new baby girl!!  So let’s jump right into the fun!!  

day 27 of 30 :: daily routine :: I start every day with a cup of tea.  I love the little leaf stem on the forte triangular tea bags!

Then I hit the new market at the Evanston Ecology center – was hoping for a couple of vendors to be there, but sadly they were not … maybe next week. We saw some good stuff tho!

Then it was time to hit the road … it was a beautiful day, the sun was shining bright … if only it wasn’t so cold!

I arrived in Chesterton just a couple of hours after momma and baby came home from the hospital.  Little Sloane was all snug as a bug… she is super cute and so stinkin’ tiny she doesn’t even fit into premie clothes!  Look at her tiny little bracelet!

I spent a little time snuggling with her before we decided to start the photoshoot.  I gotta give huge props to baby photographers!!!  I do not have any idea how the pose these little munchkins.  They just don’t cooperate.  I’m thinking maybe she was a little too young at only five days old, but I did get a couple of cuties! Holly purchased this crazy long santa hat off etsy and she wanted to try to recreate the shot from the website – impossible!!

After Sloane was done with her first photoshoot, Holly’s friend Nikki came over to bring them dinner { so nice } and hung around for a little bit.  Her adorable little boy was so excited to hold the baby.

Meanwhile, Bella was busy taking photos with her camera.  I caught her snapping a self portrait and asked her to show me.  She’s such a ham…

I hung around till it was about dinner time for the Pittman clan … snapped a few photos of Jeff with his little girl before I left.   He is one proud papa!  Oh and I caught the BEST baby yawn!  Oh how I love a baby yawn!!!

Oh and I had to snap a photo of Xavier’s sign.  He made this adorable little sign to hang on the hospital room door – they said the nurses were gaga over it.  Apparently this was a first.

Couldn’t officially leave till I got one more snap of Sloane and her big sister Bella B!  We were cracking up because it looks like Sloan is throwing the peace sign…
