Siblings | Glimpes Week 25


(This blog post is part of the Glimpses 52 project over at the Chic Critique Forum.)

Sometimes photographing your own kids is easier than photographing someone else's... and sometimes it isn't. Trying to corale a rambunctious three year old with his six month old baby brother to capture both of them smiling sweetly and looking at the camera definitely falls under the category of "isn't"!

Last Friday, a last minute sitter cancellation and 98F weather meant I was unexpectedly at home in the morning with the two boys. Liam wanted to hold Jack, which I have become increasingly more comfortable with as Jack becomes more robust and self-supporting, so I thought, hey, why not try for that quintessential sibling portrait?

To be honest, my efforts have been somewhat weak in this area to date, Friday being my first semi-serious attempt at a more "formal" portrait of the two of them together, and, well, it was total chaos! Hilarious chaos, but basically, it was a complete disaster. Liam would barely cooperate and when he did, Jack wouldn't.

But then I captured this photo and it was all worth it. It wasn't what I had in mind, it wasn't the quintessential sibling portrait... but it's even better! To me, this photo captures their personalities, the reality of parenting a toddler and a baby, and what was going on at the time. It's cute, it's real, and as a mom, I couldn't have hoped for a better outcome and it's now the cover photo for my personal facebook profile!

Plus the "outtakes" from the session are hilarious and PURE GOLD! I will definitely be using them as material for The Photosanity Workshop!

Smiles from Jack | Glimpses Week 22


(This blog post is part of the Glimpses 52 project over at the Chic Critique Forum.)

Jack is five months old. Actually he's almost six months old but let's just say he's five months old because the time is starting to pass so quickly!

Things are definitely getting so much easier than those first few newborn months. In fact, although every age is the perfect age in some way, this age might just be the most perfect perfect age. Pay Jack just a little bit of attention and he will reward you with lovely smiles that make you feel like you're the greatest thing since sliced bread. Put just a little bit more effort into it and he will giggle and laugh like you are the most hilarious thing in the world. He barely cries these days (I think Liam cries more) and he's not yet crawling or getting into things or having tantrums.

Jack, you are amazing. Thank your for brightening my days with your own special brand of sunshine and joy! You are delicious and adorable!

Nutso for solids | Glimpses Week 18


(This photo is part of the Glimpses 52 project over at the Chic Critique Forum.)

In the last few weeks, Jack has transformed from "still kind of a newborn" to "definitely not a newborn." In fact, he's become the quintessential "Gerber baby" - he's sitting (in a wobbly, propped up kind of fashion but still, sitting) and smiling and grabbing things and even starting to rotate and push backwards when you put him on his tummy.

He's out of our room and into a crib, mostly sleeping through the night, and we also started him on solids. He goes nutso for the solids! I thought the high chair might be a good place for him to hang out while I do things like prepare meals, feed Liam, eat and clean up, but once you put him in there, he expects to be fed! And pretty much doesn't want to stop until you take him out of there. This is his mouth open where's-the-spoon look I get all the time!

I must say, it's a nice change from Liam, who right now often needs to be cajoled into every mouthful. Mind you, he was more like Jack at Jack's age too, and ultimately, I'm glad they're both good eaters. I have lots of fond memories of trying different foods on Liam and I'm looking forward to doing the same with Jack!

Jack in the bumbo | Glimpses Week 17


(This photo is part of the Glimpses 52 project over at the Chic Critique Forum.)

I figured it's high time Jack got a Glimpses blog entry... this is a true glimpse into our life right now, cluttered kitchen counters and all.

And yes, Jack is sitting in a bumbo on our kitchen table! Don't worry, he is closely supervised at all times, and no, this wasn't my idea!
