It's A Wrap

My new camera came!

And this is one of the very first photos I took last night. I tried to restrain
myself and wait for daylight, and maybe learn how to use it other than using auto settings, but I just couldn't wait. And here's what I got:


I know it's a lot of flash and I don't know how to edit, but look at those eyes! If you zoomed in you could SEE me in her eyes.

I'm in love.

Ivy is also so stylishly wearing on her head our very favorite Aden+Anais muslin wrap. I'm actually under there with her- it makes a great tent, swaddle blanket, spit up catcher, booger wiper, nursing cover (or even better- belly fat hider when you are nursing), changing pad, sun blocker, you name it... we have like 10 of them and I can't get enough.

Aden+Anais
knows I'm a huge fan and are so generously offering a giveaway to one of you! You can choose from the Winter Warmth Swaddles or Dream Blankets. Just leave a comment letting me know which one you'd choose, or if you have another favorite from their collection. I'll choose one winner at random next Wednesday April 8 sometime after 11:59 PM.

Congrats to the winner- Rachel from Starting Out!

I heard it was spring somewhere but it definitely isn't here. You can get the Aden+Anais Winter Warmth Swaddles for $29.95 and Dream blankets for $39.95 by using promo code: wintersale .

Now I've got some photo shootin to do. You Capture is tomorrow and I can't wait!


P.S. My new camera is a Canon Powershot SX110, in case you were wondering.

  2. THE EYES, OH MY!!

    You're going to have so much fun taking a gazillion photos!

    ReplyDelete
  3. I forgot to say I love the muslin swaddling wraps - unisex

    since I want another baby, and if that happens (wooo hoooo) then I'm not sure what kind it would be :)

    ReplyDelete
  4. Love that shot!! She's gorgeous!

    I don't know which I'd like--how about if you pick one for my new grandbaby?? (He's due April 23rd!!)

    ReplyDelete
  5. Beautiful! Makes my heart smile.

    And yeah for Jimmy Johns! ;-)


    I'm love'en that Lime/Brown Swaddling Blankets

    Blessings!

  6. Wow! Beautiful shot, Steph, and I always think that is such a pretty wrap. I have a Canon Powershot A590, which still does pretty well, despite all the times I've drunkenly dropped it.

    ReplyDelete
  7. wow look at those gorgeous blue eyes!!!! No wonder your in love!

    I would probably just spent hours looking at them, if I were you! I'm sure you do it!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I adore her eyes. After consulting with Beth, I've decided to purchase the nikon d60 myself. I can't wait for it to arrive.

  9. Pink Spot Winter Warmth would be my choice. :)

    I'm thinking about upgrading my camera also. Enjoy.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Good to hear...my camera just died yesterday! She's such a sweetie.

    ReplyDelete
  11. i like the lime and brown winter warmth. :)

    i'm just now taking a photography class so i can figure out all the settings other than auto before our first baby comes!

    have fun with the new camera! happy day!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'd like the pink and brown dream blanket.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Her eyes.... she looks like a little angel baby!

    ReplyDelete
  14. She is so precious! I need to get my camera out for tomorrow's challenge too! Thanks for the reminder.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Your Ivy has gorgeous eyes.

    I would love the swaddling blankets for my little Ivy.

    ReplyDelete
  16. those eyes are a truly a window to the soul and what a beautiful soul your baby girl has. i love the duplicate meaning behind your saying that if we zoomed in we could see you reflected in her eyes. i am sure we could and can.

    i love a&a - i used their swaddle on the chickpea when she was born last summer and now i think i am coveting the dream blanket. what a nice contest!

    oh, i also have a new camera (nikon d90!!) and i am stuck on auto. except when i turn it to no flash. yeesh, i feel like such a waste having this fantastic camera and no skill sometimes!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I LOVE the Neutral Spots Muslin Dream Blanket! My SIL is preggers and doesn't know what she's having yet (will find out 4/20), but I'd love to win this for her!

    ReplyDelete
  18. So much fun, getting a new camera! And it would be fun to win the winter warmth wraps (but it's a hard choice!) for my very first little one, due in 5 weeks! :) Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  19. She is so stinking gorgeous!

    LOVE the Dream Blankets.

    Congrats on the new camera!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Those eyes look familiar . . . hmm. I wonder if that pale blue might eventually give way to emerald.

    ReplyDelete
  21. What a gorgeous shot, Ivy's eyes are so expressive! I've been wanting a new camera for awhile, but there are so many to choose from.

    * I love the Pink spots winter warmth, btw

    ReplyDelete
  22. Any of the ones with polka dots. I love polka dots, and put them on a baby product and my heart just melts. If I had to choose, I would go with the lime and brown set - unisex is so practical.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm digging the swaddlers - they are great. I really like the eggplant/grey one!

    ReplyDelete
  24. That is the same camera we got in February. I love it! Have fun with it :):):)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh yeah ,and as for editing, I use Picasa (FREE) and love it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I am also a huge fan of the A&A blankets and I keep buying them for baby showers! I think they make a great gift!

    I would love love love to try their hooded towel. It looks so wonderful!

    That shot of Ivy is amazing! Those eyes!

  27. Amazing eyes on that blue eyed beauty! I can see you will have a LOT of fun with your new camera and your sweet model.

    I'd love the blue and brown dream blanket!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Is that the camera with 10 megapixals? I've been eyeing that one but my camera still works fine so there's no excuse for me to buy another. Ivy's eyes are so vivid in that picture. That's one to enlarge and frame. She is definitely photogenic.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I think I like the Dream Blanket best. Lovely girl you have there!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love the lime/brown winter blankets! They look so soft and comfertable!

    ReplyDelete
  31. beautiful shot. Looks like you two were sharing secrets under the blanket:)
    With #2 due in 6 weeks I would love to win. It's a little hard to decide, but I really like Neutral Spots Dream Blanket.
    Thanks for hosting the giveaway, good luck to all.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ivy is beautiful! I love the Dream Blankets - the aqua/brown is my favorite but they are all awesome!

    I have a Cannon Powershot that I just got and I am learning but I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  33. ooh, love the muslin wraps -- I have actually been coveting them for awhile. I think that my baby would like them -- but they would also make a great belly fat cover while nursing (something I definitely need).

    ReplyDelete
  34. If Asher #1 doesn't work out, I have another Asher in the wings just waiting for Ivy! What a beauty!

    I want baby #2 soon and love the zoo animals...so precious.

    ReplyDelete
  35. It's funny how even when a camera messes up the subject is just as beautiful! I have so many (too) bright photos but they still remain dear to my heart!
    I think I'd choose the pink and brown dream blanket. Our baby is due April 27th. And I (strongly) believe that it's a girl! And if it's not I'd give the pink blanket to another!

    ReplyDelete
  36. OMG...I have the most beautiful grand-daughter with blue eyes I've ever seen. I love the tunnel look too. I would love to win the winter warmth ones for Elsa's new baby boy.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I like the Pink Spots pattern.

    Ivy is just beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I saw the picture before I even started reading the post and my first thought was, "Look at those eyes."

    ReplyDelete
  39. Those are amazing blankets!!! My favorite is Pink/Brown Muslin Dream Blanket...I am all over the pink and brown combo.

    ReplyDelete
  40. have fun with your new camera! how exciting.

    I would love the Pink/Brown Muslin Dream Blanket.
    It will match the swaddle wraps I already have. I l-o-v-e Aden+Anais. My baby girl is swaddled in one right now.
    I did my own review of the wraps at my site.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I've had my eye on that Dream Blanket for awhile! My 4 month old son would like it! As would my 7 weeks in utero boy/girl!

    ReplyDelete
  45. yay for your new camera!! fun =)

    i LOVE the idea of these swaddling blakets & only wish i knew about them before. all of my girls have LOVED to be swaddled, but it really was a search to find the right size blanket & one light enough to not overheat them! thanks for sharing!

    i love the pink and brown swaddling blankets...though i would probably go w/ a unisex one... ; )

    ReplyDelete
  46. The picture of Ivy is too cute. I think I could go swimming in her eyes.
    I love the aqua/brown muslin swaddling blankets. I love swaddling little babies and these match our nursery for the Baby-to-be!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. My five-day -old Elliott loves to be swaddled. I know he'd especially love the swaddling wrap. I like the lime/brown or the aqua/brown. But I'm totally flexible. Thanks!
