Baby Sidney [newborn portraits, Towanda, PA]

If I learned anything from my friend Larissa's pregnancy it was this:
don't tell my father-in-law you are prego and expect him to keep it a secret.

I remember getting a phone call from D's wonderful father, who was overly excited and who couldn't wait to tell me that our good friends Mitchell & Larissa were going to have a baby.
After my heart jumped with equal excitement, I think I said something like: "Uhh, but, maybe they wanted to tell me themselves?"
To which he responded: "OOPS! Well, pretend like you don't know! Forget that I told you! I just couldn't help myself!" :D

What can I say, babies are exciting!
And Mr. Sidney is definitely an exciting one - when I went to meet him at 8 days old, he was content to simply sleep, be woken up to eat, and go back to sleep! Ahhh the life :)
And Mitch & Larissa are such FANTASTIC parents - they are totally infatuated with their new little guy, geez they barely let me hold him! haha I had to literally pry him out of their hands to spend a little snuggle time with him :)

But see for yourself - he's so cute, if he was mine I wouldn't want to give up any moments with him either :)

Some Daddy & Sidney time - he definitely has Mitch's knack for making silly faces - how can a baby who is only 8 days old know how to make faces just like his Daddy already? He's talented, that's all I can say :)

 I told ya he was good at making faces:

While I was over visiting the brand new family of 3 - I had the incredible pleasure of photographing baby Sidney's great-Grandma meeting him for the first time! Larissa's Grandma lives right next door, but she hadn't been over yet to meet her new great-grandson. And it "just so happened" that she decided to come over while I was there - it was so amazing to sit back and observe such a fantastic meeting - it was precious!
