This week I realized my need for "embrace the camera." I, like Emily, do not have enough pictures with my mom and me and I don't want my kiddo's to feel the same way when they're older. I was looking through our pictures and noticed they're were very few pictures with my babies and me. I'm failing already, great. So, reason number one for doing embrace the camera.
Reason number two.
I started wondering why is it that I don't have pictures with my kids? I take lots of pictures of them? Oh yeah, I remember, it's because I probably have barely brushed my teeth that day and do not want myself documented this way for the rest of history. Seriously, I'm not one of those people who wake up looking good. I need make-up...or I look like a boy.
It hit me. I'm turning into one of "those moms." The ones who swore they would never wear mom jeans and one day look in the mirror and to their horror they're wearing mom jeans. (okay, I'm not that bad yet, but it's getting there.) So, for the sake of my kids, husband, and just cause it feels better when I shower. I'm going to start taking a little more time in the morning to get ready, even if that means I have two crying kiddos.
Here we go...oily face and all....attempt number one. (look at the camera V)
Okay, she got the memo, but I guess I didn't. Oh my gosh. I know all parents think they're kids are the cutest, but just look at her. I'm not exaggerating when I say I kiss those checks all day.
She melts me.
