When I was pregnant, 9 months seemed like FOR.EVER. But while shooting my baby Wild Thing’s 9 month pictures, all I could think was, “where did that time go?!” The time just slips by you …one diaper at a time.
I love when he finds something he’s never noticed before. And that he always reminds me of the little things that I love and have forgotten to slow down and notice. Thank to Lord for children.
Nothing fills me up like watching my Wild Thing running around the beach. You can tell by his face, it’s his favorite place to be. I don’t think I’ll ever grow tired of capturing these images of him, just being … Continue reading
Just about every “Family Day” we get is spent at the beach. I could spend hours just sitting and watching my wild thing discover his newest moves. Wild Things don’t sit still, not for a moment much less a picture! So, I’ve learned to work with what I can get and just have fun with it. And if your wild thing is like mine, you can get them to “jump AGAIN!” quite a few times in order to try a composite like this one below (made up of 5 images).
Pretty soon, I’ll have 2 of them running around yelling, “Watch THIS, mom!” and the fun will be doubled!
Well, its about time. You’ve seen plenty of posts about the first Wild Thing so it’s time for a post of the second.
So, far he’s held his own when it comes to his brother. He seems to have some strong opinions already. And I bet you’ll notice he’s a “thinker”, an “observer”, and seems to see right through you.
He’s roly … he’s poly … he’s got cheeks you’ll want to just nibble on … here is Wild Thing 2.
I came across these shots as I was going through my pictures for today’s post. Even though they’re only 6 months old, I see a difference in his face, a look at might have been just a phase because I haven’t seen it since, and a stolen shot of a goofy little dance that is RARELY seen in public. I see a smile that warms my heart, eyes that remind me to be a better person, a face that brings me joy. He has a spirit that tests me everyday and a character created for BIG things.
He restored a large portion of my faith, mended what I’ve let get eaten away, and is a constant reminder that I am blessed.
I’ll set the example for him on when to say ‘thank you’, how to brush his teeth, and how to add 1 + 1 but he sets the example for me on how to trust deeply, how to love faithfully, and how to dance joyfully – all things I’ve lost along my way. Seems his job is much more important and I’m not sure how I’d ever thank him other than respecting that he was sent from God.
… just goes to show you, there’s a lot you can get out of just 3 pictures that you had completely forgotten about.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
A favorite family outing of ours is to go to the harbor. Sometimes, we walk around, look at the boats, watch people walk their dogs, or just sit on the grass. Other times, we walk over to the jetty to sit and watch the water. This particular afternoon had a high surf advisory – and boy, was the tide high!
We enjoyed watching the big waves roll in … here are some of my favorite shots of a great afternoon.
Thanks for stopping by …
Well, I missed Monday (way to start the new year, huh?) BUT I have so much to share since I’ve been gone! And thank you for excusing my time off. It took me a little longer than I expected to get back to blogging – 2 kids is exponentially more adjustment than I anticipated. Even though I wasn’t adding to the blog, I WAS still working. There were 3 newborns & a few other sessions during my time off I’d like to share.
There are also some BIG changes in 2012 for my business!! I’m so ready to stretch my wings a little further …
But first, I have a special little someone to share with you to kick off the new year!!
May I introduce you to (if you haven’t already met), MY new addition, Fin.
Tomorrow we celebrate the beginning of the best thing to ever happen to us.
The day we became a family …
Happy 4th Birthday to a boy that will always be my baby.
