Now THIS is the kind of first baby picture I love to see! A celeb mom who’s unafraid (and unegotistical enough) to show herself to the world with no make-up, unstyled hair, and in a regular old hospital gown just like the rest of us! Add to that the fact that she’s practicing Kangaroo care…I wish I could “love” this more than once!

Congrats to you, Amy and Josh, and may God richly bless you and your family!
