Ok. I have a really nice camera. And a really nice lens. And lately they’ve been capturing more dust than memories. So you know what? I took some pictures today. And no, I didn’t dress the babies up in cute matching outfits and take them to a field of flowers or some picturesque barn. Ain’t nobody got time for that! I embraced the chaos that is our right now, messy floor, unmatched jammies and all. And you know what? I have a feeling that in 10 years I am going to be thrilled to have these pictures.
Here’s the picture that started it all. I am a sucker for the “baby in the bucket” picture. The fact that they were surrounded in books made it even better. So I grabbed my phone and snapped a pic. But then I thought, wait. I can do better. Instead of instagramming that bad boy, I went and dug out my camera and climbed up on the cedar chest that we use for a coffee table and took some pictures. Xander thought climbing on the cedar chest was a marvelous idea. Whoops.
Then I just sat on the floor for a while and took pictures.
Some of them are rather extreme close ups because the babies thought my camera was pretty cool, but you know what? I love them anyway.
Turns out the light in my living room isn’t too crappy in the mornings now that I open the blinds every day.
And I finally captured her lone baby tooth! Side note: it is hard to get a picture of a baby tooth!
My happy girl. I think I might do this again tomorrow. But, you know, in matching jammies. lol.
