Peanut has inherited our old point and shoot camera (though we still maintain that it is ours and therefore we have control over it and get to make sure she’s treating it like even a crappy old camera should be treated). It mostly stays in my purse and she gets to pull it out and take pictures whenever she wants. And she’s been doing it a lot! Here’s a few that she’s taken (forgive the blur, she is four after all).
I think this one looks really cool.
There are a lot of pictures of food on here.
A waterfall from a hike we took.
The view from the hike.
To be fair, I took this one.
Peanut’s friend took this picture.
This is Peanut’s friend.
Isn’t it amazing what one little camera in the hands of a four year old can document?
I realized after posting my Breastfeeding in Public Speech that the photo I chose to accompany it was taken when Peanut was 15 months, which is how old Twig is now. So, for Wordless Wednesday, I thought it would be fun to look back at some of my favorite photos of Peanut from June 2010 and compare them to photos of Twig now.
Going in chronological order, let’s start with Peanut:
She still makes this face when she’s confused why I’m taking a picture.
And now for Twig:
She is way past outgrowing the clothes that Peanut wore at 15 months.
Daredevil insisted on going down the biggest slide, even after she hit her head on it.
And they both most definitely love their daddy.
This is a continuation of the pictures I’m taking of Twig on her month-day. Past months: One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Nine. I fell off the wagon a bit, but I’m still happy that I did it. Motherhood isn’t perfect, and that’s okay.
These pictures were taken on her birth day, time (give or take a some minutes, because photo shoots don’t happen in 60 seconds), and location (we moved the bed since the birth and it happens to be where the tub was). She also insisted on chewing on the bow the whole time instead of it being in her hair, which was fine by me because she was crabby and in need of a nap (re: last photo).
It’s not her first word, but it’s certainly a cute one!
This year my parents got the girls matching dresses as part of their Christmas presents, which made me decide to do a photo shoot with them for an online Christmas card. If you’re a parent, you know that you have to take a lot of photos just to get a few that everyone is looking at the camera and happy and not blurry. This particular photo shoot though, we got quite a few silly photos. Thought you all might enjoy.
First, a non-wordless note: I’m forgiving myself for not posting much during this semester. Priorities are constantly shifting and, thanks to my diligence with my school work, it looks like I’m getting a B+ in chemistry and A in physiology this semester (totaling 9 credit hours, which is the most I’ve done in a while). I love this blog and plan on continuing to post (and more frequently!), but I’m sure you can all understand my lack of regular posting lately.
This is actually from July, but I’m doing A LOT of knitting and can’t show you any of it yet because it’s presents!
This is a continuation of the pictures I’m taking of Twig on her month-day. Past months: One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven (eight skipped because a sad broken camera).
Yay! My camera is back! $175 later, the sensor is fixed. Thank goodness for budgeting because what is a difficult month with that extra expensive would have turned into horrific if I didn’t have the separate categories and know exactly how much I could manage to take from each this month. I got back my camera right in time for Twig’s month day! So we’re back with our monthly photos.
Waiting for Music Together to start.
Peanut writes her name on her tag by herself every time.
Plug covers are great!
This is her “I hear a noise, what is it?” face.
Look at those eyes! So hazel!
Ever since I put ties on her soakers, she thinks they are for her to eat and unties them immediately.
Big alligator tears!
This is Peanut taking over the camera.
She got some good shots, albiet blurry.
On nom nom kitty!
