day 31: today I experienced a bit of deja vu… remember this post about a Korean first birthday party? well that little lady is the big sister to this little guy. And today was his first birthday. And since that old post was from 2007 that would make the little lady in that photo 3 years old! Can you believe it?! Man, oh man, time does fly! The little man’s party was just as lively and wonderful as his sister’s. And of course he was just as cute!
day 30: this morning I went and donated blood. I brought my camera with me to take a picture of something (I don’t really know what I was going to take a picture of… certainly not the bag of blood… maybe the outside of the building?) but it turned into such a debacle (two hours!) that I forgot and just went home afterward (slightly grumpy but at least I was successful). Luckily for me, when we went out in the afternoon for our daily sortie Amelia decided to be extra cute and volunteered to show off just how much she LOVES muffins for my camera and all of my photo-rific viewers 🙂
day 29: I am happy to report that today was indeed a much better day. There was no pooping in the house (unless you count the babies, but that was only in their diapers and to be expected). We went out near the end of the day to get some of the extra links taken out of my watch and the afternoon sunlight was just gorgeous. Amelia was really enjoying it. Paul was too, but he was too busy studying the cars in the parking lot to smile for a photo.
day 28: this picture is bad and I know it. So rest easy, you don’t have to sit there wondering if my judgment is getting iffy. It’s just been a rough day. It’s nearing 11pm and I am really honestly just too tired to come up with something better. I really hope that my dog does not decide that he needs to poop in the house (twice in one day) two days in a row. I have no idea where he got the idea that it was ok. If he does it again I’ll be sure to direct you all to the craigslist ad where I post our dog for sale. He is pretty cute and you might want to buy him.
day 26: yesterday my sweet lovely babies turned 16 months old. We have a tradition of taking one a photo of them on their birthday each and every month in this same chair. The are getting so big! (sniff, sniff)
day 26: I got a beautiful watch from Ben for Christmas. He really wanted to get it engraved but didn’t have time to do it before he gave it to me. It was actually a little too big as well and we figured that as long as we were taking it in to get some links taken out we should get it engraved at the same time. Which would have been a good idea, except for some reason the engraving seriously discolored the face of the watch that we had engraved (big time boo to that). Luckily the store took the watch back so I could get a new one. We had to order it since they don’t sell it in the store anymore and my new one came today. Almost the same as the original… just a little sparklier 🙂 I love it!
day 25: today we got a visit from my mom. It was a real treat for the babies since they haven’t seen her in two weeks. Amelia squealed for joy when she saw her walk in the door, which I’m pretty sure made my mom’s day. I somehow always forget to take out the camera when my parents are around, or maybe it’s just that we’re having too much fun. Who knows. This is one of only three pictures I got of my mom and Amelia today, and I didn’t get any of her with Paul. Next time, I suppose.
day 24: my computer has not been cooperating today. I think it needs a good healthy dose of maintenance, some hard drive cleaning and maybe while I’m at it a kick in the pants. Seriously frustrating how long it took me to get the wedding I was finishing up editing today done. I should not be waiting on my computer. I listened to a lot of This American Life while working.
day 23: on Saturday I did a photo shoot with the fine folks at Access Medical in Carlsbad. They wanted some images of their employees to fancy up the website. We had a lot of fun and they are such a great group of people! Here’s one of the whole group. A handsome bunch, wouldn’t you say?
day 22: today I was trying to help explain to some friends the difference between different focal lengths and lenses, and what effect crop vs. full frame sensor has on the final images that your camera produces. I just quickly picked up whatever was closest to use as a subject for a bunch of pictures… and this was it. So this is my life… the most abundant inanimate objects in my home are toys. And highchairs 🙂 At least Mr. Potato Head was cooperative.
