advice needed - 2 month old & family

Our judo instructor and his wife recently welcomed their 3rd child into the world. Little Andrew will be 2 months old in about a week and they have asked if I would take some pictures for them. How could I say no? Aside from the fact that I haven't taken pictures of ANYONE under the age of 1 except my own sweet boy (who is now NINE YEARS OLD, mind you).

Anyway ... I'll be doing the shoot at their home but the light there is pretty poor. I'll be taking my AB 800s to help out.

There will be 3 kids (age 6, 4, and 2 months old) and of course the 2 adults.

any ideas you guys have - for anything from poses to lighting set ups, etc. would be most appreciated. I'm nervous beyond nervous about this shoot, but oh so excited as well.

I've done some searches through flickr and google images, but while there are a lot of newborn images and then more once baby hits 6 months old (and can hold up head and sit on own, etc) ... there isn't much for 2 months olds other than snapshots.

if any of you have done shoots with this age and would share some inspiration, I would SO appreciate it!
