First of all.......Do you know how handy it is to have a photographer in the family? Not just any ole photographer. A really awesome one that I would choose even if she wasn't my SIL.
Ranger was 6 weeks old in these shots. Funny how kids are different. He acted like he was brand new with the sleeping this. Scout was 4 days old in her newborn session and there isn't one sleeping pic.
Ranger was my name. We said it early on, but at that time Riley was still hopeful that I would decide to like Ruger and Claude or who knows what. We said we liked Ranger, but weren't sure it was "it". When you have a little person inside you they just need a name. The kids and I called him "Baby". Baby's room, Baby this, Baby that....... Now I still catch myself calling him Baby. Hopefully we don't still call him that when he's grown.
Our biggest hold up on really deciding on Ranger was that we couldn't come up with a middle name. I was time to use a Smith or Creamer name. Scout's is Preston after my step-dad and Reno's is Wade, same as Riley. About a week before he was born I called Gigi and asked for all the names she could remember. Riley's maternal grandmother was Francis Lee. They called her Granny Franny and she was a dear! I knew immediately that Lee went perfectly with Ranger. Our other options as first names were Miles and Spur.
Boy do we love Baby!! He is precious and the perfect completion of our family!!
