Hey, I am hosting a children's swap if your interested :)

I clicked on your "Trying To Remember" post, and I just love it. I remember reading it when you first posted, and I could almost feel what you were describing. I used to take care of my cousin's baby when she was 3 months to 7 months. When I used to bathe her, I remember what you described the noisy breathing, and just seeing her innocence, and how precious she was. God truly shows himself in a baby/child. Anyway I just love the way you describe things... I get such a joy of reading your blog!! ;)

She is so smart! I think you should have the ones of each of you on the floor framed together.

You have taught her well. My son has that camera too and he goes through 100s of pics in a day but he can't hold the camera still long enough to get the picture he wants. I'm thinking of upgrading him soon.

The pictures are amazing. I was thinking to myself as I read this that I should buy one for my granddaughter Olivia because she is constantly taking pictures with mine. Thanks for the info at the end of your post. Now I will wait for a better one.

OK i don't even know you or your family but when I got to the picture she took of you I had tears in my eyes. So sweet. Probably because I know how you feel and my boys give me that same joy.

How cute! It is so awesome to see the things that fasinate them, and at their level.

This post made me grin big. Some of those shots she got really are very cool. (I do have agree about the camera though -- we have a similar one and Fidge gave up using it because of the timing issue.)

I love that you're sharing all of these special things about your kids, us readers have a front seat to your heart and these precious moments!
I can't wait to see how they continue to unfold even more, and see God's special plans for them!

Honestly, y'all are so cute! It blesses my heart to see your loving interaction as a family. It really is priceless!

If you'd like to see our little girl -- a few years older -- playing around with our camera, check out the link below. It's not quite as adorable with an older child, though. The funny part is that she had no idea she'd end up online. We were on a date, and her sisters were babysitting when she had this little photo shoot.!.html

I absolutely love the photo of you on the floor with your camera. I bet you love this one, how many times in the past 4/5 years have you been in this position and nobody ever noticed? Now she notices! So neat.

Adorable!! I love the picture of her stuffed kitty on the table.

Awwww... That's so beautiful looking at life through her eyes! I can't wait until my kids are old enough to do that. Thanks for the post, this was adorable!

It is so fun to see the world through her eyes! And I love the pictures of you taking pictures of each other, they ARE priceless! I also have to say it again, you are REALLY making progress with your photography skills!

Yeah... you're totally grooming a blogger there! :) I love how she focuses on the details in her photo taking - sign of an excellent photographer!

God DOES have great plans for our kids! And I agree, it is quite overwhelming to think that we are responsible for caring for them...


That's so sweet. The only use Noah ever has for his camera is deleting things. With a huge grin. He'd definitely not your kind of kid!

We bought our kids Crayola's version of a kid's digital camera. It also has a little delay, and honestly I haven't done anything with them on the computer to test picture quality, but they weren't too expensive(about $40 at Walmart). They would still rather use my camera (I think not) :)

Too precious!!! She has her mommy's passion! Her pictures remind me of yours--the randomness, uniqueness, etc. I love the one of the cat just sitting there so quaintly. She is adorable.

She's really got it! It must really be amazing for you that she enjoys something that you do as well. What a special bond!
