Say Cheese!

Posted on: June 15, 2011

When my friend’s daughter was born, his wife started a photo page on Shutterfly.  I remember looking at it and thinking, “Wow! She takes a TON of pictures”.  Flash forward two years:  Now, I’m the one taking a TON of pictures of my child.  I completely understand now.

My husband and I were wise enough to invest in a very nice Nikon camera before our little man was born.  I knew I would want to take a lot of pictures and videos of him.  However, what I didn’t know was that I’d want to do that about every 30 seconds.  I find myself wanting to record each moment of his little life.  I just love watching him discovering new things each day, seeing his hundreds of facial expressions, hearing the new sounds he makes each day, and watching him grow bigger by the minute.  I am constantly saying to myself or my husband, “Where’s the camera?”.  Some days I carry it with me from room to room so I don’t miss one thing my little monkey does.  I almost wish I had video cameras in every room that recorded all day long.  I know what you’re thinking, “Leah, that’s a bit Big Brotherish” (kudos to you if you got that reference without having to click on the link). No, it’s not.  I just love my little guy to pieces and can’t believe it’s already been 7 1/2 months since he was born. 

It’s true what they say, time really does fly by.   But, it’s nice to know we have cameras and video to help us capture all of life’s little moments we cherish so much.

I leave you with a couple of pictures of my little man, taken by my friend Jen from Jennifer Heim Photography. 

Now wouldn’t you want to take a million pictures of that face every day?  See? I’m not crazy.
