The light of our lives






I have always been a picture taking fool when it comes to the babies in my care. Really, I could just watch them for hours. They are so amorphous at this age, changing right before your eyes. Look at those hands!


Unfortunately, Charlie  is already expecting to see his own face when I point my cell phone at him. The "Selfie" mode works wonders when he fusses.

You can see by his expression below, that he is wondering where the damn baby went!



I get pretty much the same expression when I read aloud to him.

We are working our way through "Gone Girl" right now.

Repercussions? Who knows.

These are dark days if I dwell in the past. Charlie helps keep me in the here and now.

I am so glad you have him to distract you... and he has you to guide and shape him early on... you are both blessed!

I just finished the book finally. I'll spare Charlie the last third. I loved it.

It was a gripper. Then I went to the movie. You don't really need the movie, having read the book. I LOVE all the pictures you are taking!! I wish we'd had cell phones when my guys were little.... This last photo is especially cute. He is so thoughtful looking in that one!
