These were taken a little more two weeks ago, when Katie was 13 days old.

You can see the whole set at Jill Thomas Photography clicking this link and password “joyner.”

    Nice looking family, James, but why so dour? She won’t be asking to borrow the car for at least 16 years.

    She’s a cutie, who only has eyes for her daddy. Enjoy it while it lasts, James.

    Nice cufflinks J-Dawg!

    Is that some adulterated Canadian flag pin on your lapel?

    The sweet girl has one shot at a great smile, at least.

    Yeah, but she’ll be asking for a pony in 3. But seriously James, cheer up, you’ll miss these days when they’re gone.

    I actually like the lapel pin. Those who see it get it, those who don’t are Philistines. Not flaunting, just stating.

    And a great looking baby too.

    Seeking clarification…it looks like your wife is holding the little one. What the heck are you doing?…is that an assist?.

    Ok, color me Philistine, but what is that pin? My 68-year old eyes can’t make it out.

    And BTW, this picture is priceless (visit the album if you haven’t already).

    No, that frown is for future boys that even think about dating his daughter.

    I find the baby in the bookcase very disconcerting. The rest – very cute.

    If that was the message, I wouldn’t have hinted at subtlety, I would have posed with a nice remmington 12 gauge. That would have sent a more clearer message 🙂

    Nothing says “YOU’RE DATING MY DAUGHTER OVER YOUR DEAD BODY” like a remmingtion.

    Ahhh, yes, the difference between a parent and a grandparent. I waited over 20 yrs to get my baby girl, I finally saw her for the first time on June 30 just this past.

    James, I know why you frown… You are SCREWED!!! (because she is beautiful) Thank God I did not get my baby girl until I was a grandpa…. I am reminded of the old line that as a father of 2 sons, I only had to worry about 2 penises in the world… You have to worry about all of them….

    My own baby girl has the most beautiful eyes, the most beautiful smile, the most beautiful whine, the most beautiful sh*tty diapers…

    I may be lost, but her parents are screwed….

    You know why grandparents and grandchildren have a natural affinity? They have a common enemy.

    OK, I can’t see it either with 20 years less than you, but I’m pretty sure it is James’ Bronze Star.
