Valentine's Photo Shoot

Henry and I camped out at the house today and played all day long. I think I took a total of ten minutes to load and unload the dishwasher and do a load of laundry out of playtime. We had a wonderful time.

I also took the opportunity to attempt to capture a photo or two with the 'big' camera. I've been neglecting to use it at all lately and I have two weddings to shoot this spring and I feel completely unprepared and out of practice.

It also gave me the opportunity to look back and reflect on where a year has brought us. Kids grow far too quickly and no matter how many times people have told me this, it's still so hard for me to believe and I have proof right in front of me!

Henry's Valentine's Day photos last year at 6 months of age:






Henry this year at 18 months of age:






One of his favorite things right now is to 'play' his horn. There are three different keys and he always gets a thrill out of playing each one and hearing the different sound each makes. I thank God daily for blessing me with this little boy, he has become my reason for breathing on my days and I can't imagine my life without him.
