embrace the camera


i'm kind of desperate for motivation to get to this here blog. i know there are a few of you out there that appreciate baby updates. sorry i am such a worm (i would still love to hear from you). so emily anderson was my motivation and inspiration today with embrace the camera. it's a little blog prompt she does every thursday. so today i said "today is the day".
i, like her, need practice with these mirror shots and with little ones. but i still find great joy in these shots and even with the imperfections. ( i am presently in the midst of embracing great doses of imperfection in my life...smile).

so why we are at it...here's a six week update...(yes...six weeks already! he is already getting so big!!!)

he is starting to coo
and smile even here and there
we love him more than we even imagined
he is only up once a night
he is NOT a fan of the bath
but we are fans of that sweet baby smell
he is fitting in with our crazy schedule, which is more than i can say for myself at times
there are absolutely no jealousy issues with him and our other youngest...that keaney simply loves him too much!
we are so very blessed

thanks so much for visiting.
