The house is quiet and empty for the first time in weeks, there is finally time to think about our experiences from the last few weeks.
Turns out, you really don’t need editing software to make your photos pop. You don’t need your iPhone and apps like Hipstamatic and Instagram to make kind of crummy shots look artistic and interesting. You just need to know which photo styles you like and how to create them using the settings on your DSLR camera.
I’ll admit I was expecting a bit more smashing…
1 year ago today, you made me a Mama. You made your dad a daddy. You made us more patient, more loving, better and yes, happier people than we could have ever imagined before.
I was baking dulce de leche cheesecake bars (omg so good!) and trying to “casually” count the minutes between the “cramps” I was having. What a difference a year makes…
It’s always hard to find a board book that’s as pleasurable for parents to page through as it is for baby. Kids’ books these days are works of art, I love them. Books for baby though, on the other hand, are a bit trickier. If baby likes it, it’s probably done up in the garish, overly-saturated primary colors that are easiest for young babies to see. If Mama and Daddy think it’s a pretty book, the colors or drawings are probably too subtle to hold much interest for baby.
I don’t know how I managed to not share this for so long but Will can walk!
