I've been ready to name this girl for a few days now. Not having a name is driving me CRAZY because I keep calling this baby Inga! I have found first & middle names that really "fit" when I look at her. But Eric is dragging his feet. He's waiting for a name epiphany: lightning coming from the sky, thunder announcing that we have found The Name. I don't think that's going to happen and I want to move on. I have the birth story ready to share, the birth video ready to publish...all just waiting for a name.
So instead I will share some pictures I took on Saturday. I just started shooting in manual with my DSLR and it's amazing how much better my pictures turn out. Manual isn't as scary as I thought it would be. I'm still learning how to get the focus and depth of field right with my portrait lens. The trickiest thing was getting the baby to hold still. She's a sleepy newborn if she's on my chest--not if I'm trying to pose and rearrange her!
