Mama Time

{don't you love his look/grimace of utter disgust?? Like, "WTH?? Who do you think you are??"}


{yeah... he's sucking on me nose. *SLURPPP*}



I need to keep reminding myself to get in FRONT of the camera with my little one... Because he'll want to see old pictures one day, and if Dad is the only one in the pictures with him, what conclusions might he draw? So every so often I hand the camera over to Joe and ask him to catch a few moments of my baby and me. And he gets better and better each time... So even though I'm a bit camera-shy, the whole process isn't that painless!

*

(Aaahh, who am I kidding?? I've NEVER been camera-shy! I pretty much LOVE having my picture taken, as long as I have the final say on whether or not it's good and should be saved or deleted. And you thought I was ALWAYS this cute? Nah... just selective photo-taking and a bit o' editing. I'm pretty average in real life. But being average never stopped me from enjoying hamming it up for the camera!!)

  4. Also the orange and blue. I got made fun of for a while because of how obsessed I was with orange and blue. In fact, here in front of me sits my orange and blue camera strap as proof :)

  6. You're lucky Joe's good with a camera! I can't, for the life of me, figure out why J can NOT click a picture. I'm going to post the one he got of me yesterday, you'll get a good laugh.

  7. I hate getting in front of the camera now a days, but I know that my children will want pics with me as well so every once in a while I force myself. So, I was noticing, Zander has that same onesie Noah is wearing in these photos.

  11. That first picture made me laugh so hard! That look is sooooo hilarious! I didn't know boys began their "ewww, don't kiss me, Mom!" stage at 4 months. Priceless.

  13. Absolutely precious. I love it all! I know you will all cherish these pictures in the years to come... as you are taking all these adorable photos with your camera, remember the valuable words of Elder Ballard and be sure to take pictures with your mind and heart as well...
