So what's the problem now? Well - I seem to be spending literally all of my time nursing. Addie gained 13 ounces in the last week. I'm not complaining, but it is proof that the child loves to eat. This means I'm more or less stuck in one place. I usually forget to put the camera within arm's reach and once I am situated, I'm not going to move. And if I do happen to remember...Lincoln will undoubtedly grab it and take off running. Not a good thing when one of his favorite activities right now is hurling things across the kitchen floor to hear the loud crashing sounds they make.
So, more and more, I get to the end of the day and realize... I took basically no photos today. That may seem like a crazy thought, but for me it's super odd to not take at least a handful of photos. Then today, I was trying to clear space on my phone's memory card and I found that I have been taking photos - just not with the super nice and expensive camera!
Here are a few favorites that I found -
|Little boy with WILD hair!|
|Yep, the shirt says it all.|
|This Rock 'n Play is the best investment I made.|
|She really does like her flower bows...|
|Lots of true love from big brother.|
|Showing off a hairbow and those pretty eyes!|
|Prepping for Christmas card photos!|
|This is where we spend most of our time.|
|My snuggly sleepy boy.|
So it turns out - you don't necessarily have to use your best piece of equipment all the time. As long as you are capturing memories one way or another, it's a success. I'm really thankful for my cheap cell phone camera... I wouldn't have any of these sweet photos without it!
Now...my photo organization....that's another story altogether. Someday I will catch up. Maybe.
