One of my all time favorite gifts I got last year for Christmas. It is my Canon DSLR. By no means is it the top of the line, professional grade camera or anything like that, but it has taken some amazing pictures over the last nine months! It took all the weekly photos of my crazy belly bump with Liam. It took pictures of us with family during the 28 day cross-country road trip. And it has taken lots of photos of my little men being innocent, and then not so innocent. I’m still learning how to use all the bells and whistles and how to operate the manual settings, but I’m loving every minute of that–okay maybe not the frustrating minutes where I missed out on a great picture.
Anyways, I plugged in my memory card today to get Liam’s weekly picture off of the card in order to photoshop the numbers onto his onesie, and as I was scrolling down I found pictures I’d completely forgotten about from a walk we took a few weeks ago.
It’s as if my “favorite” gift just keeps on giving–and not to other like I had planned for it to when I asked for it for Christmas. Instead its continually giving ME these amazing memories and photos of my cute little family and the things we’re constantly doing together.
Not only did we take pictures of the sunset that night, we also took pictures of the boys while Xander took his bath. I think you can tell in the photo above that Liam is absolutely in love with his big brother. Everything Xander does Liam finds hilarious. I can only hope that they continue to love each other as much as they do now in the future. If they do I really will have it made!
I’m definitely going to have to step up my game as far as keeping in mind pictures I’ve taken! I can’t believe these were pretty much lost!
