Smile!

What a grin, Owen. Smiles like these really brighten a mom's day. :)

Little Falls

Thanks to my in-laws for installing these little falls in their back yard just for me to play with some long exposures... *wink, wink* Anyway, I took these pictures at dusk and as the sun fell, my exposures kept getting longer and longer. The first picture with all three of the little falls was 5 seconds long, and the close-up of the biggest of the falls was 10 seconds long. On a side note, I suffered 13 mosquito bites for these pictures...

My Silly Baby

Just some fun and silly pictures of Owen gnawing on his colorful teething beads... no teeth yet, though!

Buddies

My neighbor friend Dawn and I took our boys to the park today. Dominic slowed down for just a moment to hang out with Owen on the grass. It looks like Dominic is teaching Owen a secret handshake. How cool to have a little buddy right next door. Soon Owen will be chasing after him!

Yawns: Then and Now

Everyone knows kids change fast. I revel in finding the similarities that stick with them - the expressions, gestures, etc. I have always adored baby yawns. I just love them. Here is one of Owen at 13 days of age and another at 6 1/2 months, taken just days ago.

Baby Buns and Wooden Spoons

I wanted to get some cute nakie pics of Owen, but also didn't want to clean up messes all over the house. I stuck him on some white fleece in our kitchen and to keep him relatively still, I gave him a wooden spoon to play with. Well, then he was more interested in the spoon than Mommy and I didn't get many shots of him looking at the camera. Oh well, these are neat in that it documents this stage of his life where a wooden spoon can hold his interest for a long period of time. I'll be missing this stage soon enough... when nothing holds his interest for more than 15 seconds. :)

Kicking Back

Adorable Jonathan is just hanging out, enjoying being outside on a nice evening. What a pose, huh? Of course that sweet smile is for his mom... :)























That lady with the camera is looking at me....























Where's my other shoe?

Baby Jack is Getting BIG!

Owen and I visited our good friends Molly and Jack yesterday. Of course I took pictures! Unfortunately, I couldn't get a good one of Owen and Jack together because Owen cannot be trusted with babies... of any age. He likes to taste and touch them. Yum. Molly attempted to keep him under control, but it was a lost cause. I think we'll have to wait until Owen is sleeping next time... Or wait until Jack is big enough to fight Owen off. On to the fun pics. Great to see you guys, as always!

Some Different Views

Here are a couple more from Sunday night. I decided to post these because the angles and composition are really different from my usual choices. Just mixing it up.

Lucky Catch

Owen is getting quicker on the hands and knees, so I was very lucky to get this shot. He's good practice for me.

Untitled for Now

I found this abandoned eggshell on the sidewalk during my walk yesterday morning. Haven't come up with a title yet for it... Hmmm...

Fourth of July Picnic

The Fourth of July was a family-filled weekend for us. Hope everyone had a great one! This is one of my favorites from this weekend - Owen just hanging out with his Auntie Kasey. More to come when I sort through everything!

Breast Milk is Yummy in My Tummy... See???

Just playing around with Quick Mask mode... fun. Not the greatest shot with the distracting background, but what mom wouldn't be proud of her son showing off this pudgy belly? Alright, who wants to pinch him?
