Christmas Day Pics

Go Cards! (Charlie is from STL, and people know he’s a huge fan, so Stella’s Cardinals wardrobe is growing quickly!)
Trying for a sleepy baby photo, but instead she was wide awake and chatty. Nothing like her mother. 😉 To see a video, click here


My fam (plus significant others).


  1. Did your whole family purposely wear black while Stella was in red?If so, that's so cute.

  2. OMG she is so, so precious!!!! That hat!I can't ever remember my baby being that small. I scrolled down to see what Stella weighs and, well, Clara most definitely WAS that small at some point. So, soak it up and take lots of pics to remember!

  3. @Shannon – yep – everyone was purposely in black. Mom wanted a big picture to put on her office wall with Stella in the middle. 🙂 She's actually going to use a pic I posted on my family blog. We're a big picture family. 🙂

  4. Lovely pictures, Josey!

  5. Josey, your family is precious! So such a pretty group of people! Looks like you had a wonderfully merry and blessed Christmas!

  6. LOVE the red and black. SO CUTE!

  7. You know how I feel about this picture. Or at least you should. Holy hell, you have a beautiful Cardinals fan daughter. 🙂

  8. Merry Christmas! I am finally making my way back into getting caught up with blogs and want to say a HUGE congratulations on your daughter!! She is beautiful! I am so glad you were able to follow your birthing plan so closely and I really enjoyed reading about it 🙂 love hearing these happy endings/beginnings!

  9. Our photographer required me to keep Mac up for at least an hour before bringing him to the studio, suggested that I bathe him to keep him awake. Then get him good and stuffed full of milk and then she worked her magic on him. That magic required quite a few space heaters to keep the room at about 80 degrees so he would just conk out and then she posed the shit out of him. It was awesome to watch and her methods seem flawless as I've yet to see a Newborn photo out of her that hasn't been perfection. 🙂 Hope that helps!

  10. That video is sooooooooo cute!!! She's such a little squirmer. 🙂

  11. Love the pictures! That is awesome that everyone got to see you guys for Stella's first Christmas! Love it!

  12. She is so beautiful. You already look like a pro!! What a great time of the year to have a newborn!

  13. Perfection! Love all the pics and your little Santa Baby 🙂

  14. That's a whole lotta good looking people, especially Stella. :)OMG, Oak's comment, I have so much to learn! That is totally interesting how to get sleepy baby pics.BTW, I have three unwatched episodes of Revenge, and I think of you every time I see them in the queue. I know when I watch the oldest one, I will think "IS THIS THE PART WHERE JOSEY WENT INTO LABOR!?"

  15. Awesome family pics. So you are the oldest of 4 girls and 1 boy and it looks like your brother is the youngest? I have the exact same thing in my family and I am the oldest. I loved the video of Stella trying to squirm away. Too cute!

  16. […] made it back to MN for a Christmas holiday since 2009. Boo. In 2011 my family adjusted by flying out here right after Stella’s birth (which was so awesome), but this year my parents decided to not […]
