Meet: Baby Colin

Winkin', Blinkin', and Nod, one night sailed off in a wooden shoe;
Sailed off on a river of crystal light into a sea of dew."Where are you going and what do you wish?" the old moon asked the three. "We've come to fish for the herring fish that live in this beautiful sea.
Nets of silver and gold have we," said Winkin', Blinkin', and Nod.

The old moon laughed and sang a song as they rocked in the wooden shoe.
And the wind that sped them all night long ruffled the waves of dew.
Now the little stars are the herring fish that live in that beautiful sea;
"Cast your nets wherever you wish never afraid are we!"
So cried the stars to the fishermen three - Winkin', and Blinkin', and Nod.

Meet: Baby Colin

This little one is the brand new nephew of our amazing bride Taren, who you will remember from this shoot. Taren's sister & brother-in-law, Shannon & Dan, just brought Colin home about a month ago and they are already total pros at this whole parenting thing. I was totally blown away by what naturals they are!

At one month old you ponder things... like the meaning of life

and putting on a toe show.

You do a little dance...

Make a little yawn.

And you're down for the night. Clap Clap. Down for the night.

Now Winkin' and Blinkin' are two little eyes and Nod is a little head.
And the wooden shoe that sailed the skies is a wee one's trundle bed.
So close your eyes while mother sings of the wonderful sights that be.
And you shall see those beautiful things as you sail on the misty sea,
Where the old shoe rocked the fishermen three - Winkin', Blinkin', and Nod.

Sleep tight little one.

Shannon, Dan & Colin, you three are continuing our love affair with the whole McKinney family (and now the Roy's too!!) You guys are all such very special people, and we feel so lucky to know you! Thank you for always making us feel like family!
