    I love Bobbi&Mike…and you have such an awesome blog! ๐Ÿ™‚

guess who got her wide angle lens today?

When a lens comes in the mail we drop everything, pop it on and anybody standing still (or in this case, not so still) is game to be shot. The crazy thing, as awake as Miles looks here, heโ€™s about ten minutes away from going to bed. Itโ€™s the high before the crash. Announcing, the…

    These photos have lured me out of lurking! ๐Ÿ™‚ PLEASE list what lens you have (including this last fabulous one!) Wonderful as always!

    Fun, fun, fun!!! I’ve decided I’m holding out for the 50mmL. That one makes me drool, even though I’ve never gotten to play with a fixed lens before. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    He looks so happy! YAY for new lenses! Oh and it’s not a rare condition I’m pretty sure at this age the nerves in their heads are not fully developed ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Betsy:) These are soo cute! When I first saw the first picture of Miles, I immediately could see you in his face. I think it is the smile and chin, but he looks like you in that picture! You are so funny . . . I thought I was the only one who got excited about cake at weddings! I would seriously skip the dinner and head for the cake . . . if no one would notice:) Thanks for sharing:) Anne

    That lens looks like it will be a favorite of yours. These are great, thanks for putting a big smile on my face. That first one though… classic!

  • Matt HallJuly 31, 2008 - 7:27 am

    I love new lenses too! I like the first image. The shoes really “stand” out. Have a great day!

  • CassieJuly 31, 2008 - 11:03 am

    those cheeks! i love them!

    You know what, it really comforts me to read that you too have wondered if your little boy doesn’t feel pain… because I’ve been wondering the same about Bailey. Sometimes he goes over to a wall and bangs his head in it and then just moves on as if nothing happened. And he always has a couple of bruises somewhere, but never seems to be sore if I touch them. So, hmm… But if you have asked yourself the same thing, then maybe this is just the way babies are. Less whiney than grown-ups? ๐Ÿ™‚

    I look forward to hearing about John’s birthday and the wedding!!

  • AbbyJuly 31, 2008 - 4:34 pm

    I’m so with you about the boys hitting their heads. We often joke that Eli’s got a head made of concrete the number of times he’s hit it and then just kept right on truckin’!! Good thinking on the noodle… we’ve had one big biff in the tub too… don’t know who was more traumatized, Eli or me!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just when I think you couldn’t possibly create a cuter photo of Miles- you prove me wrong! He is SUCH a cutie!

sweet story time with miles & the pugs

Evvvvvery night Stamp joins Miles for his story time and every once in a while Whisper (sheโ€™s the one with the long tongue) will join us too. This is my FAVORITE time of day. Music by Jake Shimabukuro who John and I saw in the coolest little intimate concert when I was just entering my…

    I adore how Miles knows exactly when to turn the pages of the book. It brings back many fond memories of Noah when he was that age. So so sweet and smart. I love this little video.

blowing bubbles your way

Who ever isnโ€™t cooking dinner in the evening will take Miles outside to play until dinner starts. This particular evening I let dinner simmer on itโ€™s own for a bit and had to come out and join them. There will come a day when heโ€™ll be playing with friends and weโ€™ll have to drag him… Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
