Baby photos, part 2

At long last, the other set of baby photos has arrived! Enjoy!!

After everything is cleaned up, the newly-become “Nanny” gets to hold her granddaughter.

Hey, a smile!

And an eye! Yoli thought they were brown, I thought they were blue. We’ve had the baby four days now and the jury is still out on this one.

A yawn.

The new family

Apparently a family member who will remain nameless called my dad and exclaimed “Congratulations, Uncle Joe!” Except that my dad became a grandpa, not an uncle.

Diaper No. 1 successfully changed.

Father and daughter bonding.

Mother and daughter bonding.

Wow, that’s a lot of hair!

Getting ready to leave the hospital

Hey, Josh finally figured out how to adjust this new car seat!

But Jadzia is so small, we need to wrap a towel around her head to keep it from flopping around as we drive.

    Jadzia Marie looks soooo precious! We are looking forward to seeing her in person! In the meantime, keep the pictures coming!

  2. Aunt Shelly and Uncle Jim says:

    Josh and Joli, we are so happy for all of you. The baby is beautiful and she will only grow more beautiful over time. We hope to see you in person, let us know if a trip to TX is in the near future. You’ve yet to meet our new one, who is almost 2. At least Jadzia will have a Renaud 2nd cousin her age.
    All our love,
    Texas Renauds,
    Jim, Shelly, Aaron, Ariel and Anna

    Congratulations, Josh and Yoli! Your little girl is very pretty and I know you are in heaven when you touch and feel her. I am a jealous mom of a little boy (almost 2) who wants a girl next.

    Josh and Yoli! Jadzia looks just like Yoli!! She is so beautiful!! Rocco was our darkest baby with the same shoulder hair going on. It did go away. He never had that much on his back!!!
    Love to you all!

    Congratulations to the proud parents and the most beautiful Jadzia! Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos. Peace be with you and your families.

  11. Steve Kelley says:

    Congratulations! The photos are terrific.
    May she be a joy by day and asleep by night.

  12. Saudi Renaud's says:

    She is just beautiful and we are happy for the both of you. I’m sure the grandparents are excited although Joe/Anita don’t seem old enough to be grandpa/grandma (well, maybe Joe).
    Stay in Touch!

    Yoly debes estar realmente feliz con la llegada de tu bebe, que bien se ven juntos espero que esta nueva etapa de tu vida como mama sea hermosa bendiciones para ti y tu familia,

  14. Yoel (IVEPer) says:

    Josh & Yoli
    Congratulations, the baby is very cute. The baby is the blessing in your entire life.

  15. Norma Klingsick says:

    Congratulations Josh and Yoli! She’s a beautiful baby. Our oldest Blake had a lot of hair on his back too, just not so dark. I always blamed my husband’s side of the family. Hope she’s sleeping well for you. Thanks for sharing your photos.

  16. Shell says:

    She is a beautiful baby. And yes, it looks as though she’s going to have her mother’s pretty dark hair.

  17. B. Douglas says:

    Wow, Josh, Jadzia is really cute. Most newborns are kind of, well, rough looking. Not like they can help it. Swimming around in ambiotic fluid and then getting squeezed out like some kind of canelloni filling probably isn’t all that much fun, and doesn’t exactly contribute to a good hair day either, but you guys actually managed to have a CUTE newborn. Congratulations to you and Yoli again.

  18. Tom says:

    Wow, she’s got more hair on her back than I do. Wish mine would just fall out, too.
    Congratulations, both of you. She’s beautiful.

  19. Rikia carter says:

    Congrats parents!!! Your precious bundle of love is a beautiful girl. Jadzia has a wonderful mom and dad. See you soon!!

  20. Jacob says:

  21. Faye says:

    Dear Yoli and Josh:
    May the Lord continue to show His blessing on your lives! What a beautiful gift He’s given you with Jadzia. Now for all of the tremendous changes that she’s going to bring into your lives. What does the Zegarra family say about her?
    Love, Faye

  22. San Antonio Renauds says:

    Josh and Yoli!
    What a picture perfect baby girl! God is so wonderful, so awesome!
    Yadzia is so precious, wish we were there holding and kissing on her. Does her name have special meaning?
    Thanks for the pictures, we will look for more as I get back on the ole PC more often.
    Congratulations! Yoli, I hope you are recovering well!
    Our prayers are with you all!
    Love, the other Texan Renauds, but the ones in San Antonio,

    Hi there Josh and Yoli!
    What beautiful pictures of Yadzia, both of you, and Joe and Anita!
    God is so wonderful, so awesome to bring such a precious baby into your lives.
    Josh, you and Yoli look like ready-made parents!!
    Keep the pictures coming, as I am getting back on the ole PC more often now (every one to two weeks!)
    I tried posting another note on this site, but somehow it didn’t take, so this is round two!
    Yoli, I hope you are recovering well. We continue to pray for you.
    Love, the Texan Renauds in San Antonio,
