Lets just say that Easton was a highly anticipated little guy! He was our friends first grandchild and made his mommy wait 11 whole days after his due date to finally appear!
Early on, his parents Karrin and Josh monitored his size in utero by following an online description that described their baby's size in correlation to fruit. Somewhere before grape and after strawberry, the name "Blueberry" stuck.
They chose not to find out the sex, to leave that as the "big reveal" but for Karrin, "Blueberry" always felt more masculine than feminine. Soon everyone was asking about "Blueberry" and when he/she might arrive.
Upon his arrival, the name "Blueberry" gave way to Easton, and the name then passed to his favorite stuffed animal. Our first photography session found us unexpectedly overwhelmed with well-wishers and Easton was less than impressed with my magic photo skills! Our next meeting came just a few days later and he was oh so cooperative and darling! This is one of my 2012 baby package littles and I look forward to watching him change and grow over the next few months!
