Month one: Photo shoots and paparazzi

This first month with Laila at home has been a whirlwind. We are learning the ropes as new parents and trying to catch up on everything else in life in the small increments of time that Laila allows us.

We were lucky enough to have a number of adoring fans visit us this first month to see the new addition. Mohamed parents stopped in for a weekend and my parents took advantage of their newly retied status to spend 10 days or so with us. Tara also came out for a long weekend to see her new niece. Our family all pronounced her to be a beautiful baby  (not that they are biased) .  More importantly, they helped us to stay sane by pitching in for sessions of baby holding and rocking, cooking dinner, fetching things for Zoe while she was nursing and other exciting activities. We can't thank you enough!

Like all new parents, we are determined to capture every moment of our baby's life...the result thus far is countless photos of Laila sleeping ( she is just not as photogenic while crying or eating, her other favorite activities). We even attempted to create some of those cute newborn photos that you see in the magazines (because Mommy did not want to pay for the pro price tag) in a few photo shoots. Now that we have a spare moment, I can finally post some of our favorites from the month...Enjoy!
