fuji love

For Christmas, I gifted myself a Fuji X100t, mostly because I wanted a compact camera I could throw in my purse and pull out in public without looking like I worked for the local newspaper. iPhones have great cameras, but they do have their limitations. I got around to shooting a bit and while I am still learning, I love this little camera so far. A few of my first snaps, all shot in Aperture Priority mode.

Rolling the markers is so much more fun than drawing with them.

Yikes. Let’s just pretend that it really hasn’t been ten weeks since I’ve posted. What can I say? Life has been busy with a baby who still wakes in the middle of the night and trying to run and grow a business all on my own. Unfortunately, there has been no time for blogging. However, I miss this place and plan on making it a priority to be more active here. It’s good for my creative soul.

Dear K,

You are now 3 months old and I can't believe how quickly time is going! It is so exciting because you are beginning to show little bits and pieces of your personality. You love to smile and one of the best parts of my day is when I go in to get you in the morning and you give me a humongous smile with your cute chubby cheeks. You have also started daycare and seem to be doing great. I can't wait until you can sit up so that you can start enjoying more toys and being able to see more of what is going on around you.

Your dad and I are still adjusting to life as parents of two. You have definitely made our lives a bit more hectic, but you have also made our family feel whole. You are so very loved and always will be.

Love Always,

Mama

Dear D,

I always smile inside when I get the inevitable question from people: "So, how does D like his little sister?" You have adored Ksince the day we brought her home. You get so excited whenever you see her and you always exclaim, "Oh, she's so cuuute!" There has never been even an ounce of jealousy since she has joined our family. You have been such a great big brother!

Lately, you are obsessed with the song, Gangnam Style. You love watching the music video on the iPad and will stand there imitating the dance moves. A few weeks back, you were entertaining K with your amazing dancing. I'm so glad I captured it. You seem to get funnier and funnier by the day and find such joy in life. That makes me so happy.

Love Always,

Mama
