Capturing the Moments

I have had two crazy busy days.  So glad it is Friday.  Today, my phone was ringing off the hook and my email inbox was filling up faster than I could empty it.....I was STRESSED out! 

So, what did I do?  I took a 10 minute break and I looked at these:

My sweet boys.

Pictures just make me smile. 

Makes me also realize I did not take enough pictures of my boys when they were little.  I thought I had alot, but now looking back I realize that I didn't get nearly enough. I should have taken one every single day so I could remember how sweet and precious they were as tiny little people.  I should have taken one of every finger, every toe, every hair on their little heads.  And on my little Chipster - that would have been a ton of pictures!  That boy had hair for DAYS!

Here are a couple of pictures I took of Chip's hand while we were at the park.  Aren't they just precious?  A dirty little hand that has been playing hard at the park.  That was only last year and now his hand seems double that size.

I tell you all this because I AM INSPIRED!

I am going to keep my camera on the kitchen counter every day and take  pictures of them while they are sleeping, while they are telling me a story, while they are walking home from the bus stop, while they are reading, while they are playing their video games, petting the dog, bouncing a ball, watching tv, eating dinner, brushing their teeth.  I will be like paparazzi!

Capturing the mundane moments of the quickly passing days of their childhood.  From the few minutes I spent looking at old pictures today, I know that they will be my most prized possession when my guys are grown and I want to go back and talk a little walk down memory lane. 

So, if you are looking for me I will be taking pictures!!

Have a great weekend!


  1. I am going to borrow your idea. What better way to combat stress than to look at sweet babies?

  2. What a wonderful idea. Children grow so fast and life gets in the way and memories fad.
    Love the baby pictures

  3. Mer loves the baby pictures as do I, but I also like the sports pictures you take with that awesome camera you have. I hope you solve your stress problems but keep sending pics. Dad
