I Ought to be Ashamed

at the amount of photos I took of this boy.  
But it's like when you make Deb's Salted Brown Butter Rice Krispie Treats,
and she has you add a bit of extra butter and then brown it (could anything smell better?),
loving the toe grab
and you dump it into a dish to spread that gooey, warm, delectable (Clover's new favorite word) confection,
who can resist putting some of that in their mouth, even though it might burn your tongue?
toes, illuminated
The sweetness is entirely overpowering after more than one piece, but it's still warm and still marshmallow stringy, so you indulge, and smile while you do. 
knuckle dimples
It's like that.  
hand discovery
It was the perfect photo shoot recipe: the early morning happies from the boy,
whistle blower
as I pulled him into bed to change his clothes and diaper,
golden goodness streaming in from the window,
those blues looking like they do, and that lower lip suck.
So, though I should be embarrassed,
limbs
I'm not, 
because I'm confident
you might have done the same.

  13. This is why we invested in a DSLR soon after our son was born. His someday wife will pour over all these wonderful picture to see all the baby cuteness she can look forward to.

    He's growing to fast!

  24. And that gives me the little kick to think OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH YES I want another one (I have 3 with special needs so I am busy already!). Stupid hormons who won't calm down. And sweet babies are just one of the best things in the world.
    Keep on taking pics there is never enough.

  30. It's been two days now that my little guy had draw with blue sharpies in my computer screen, and this is the first time the scribble annoys me, because those pictures are beautiful and the scribble kind of ruins them.

  35. precious boy! These photos made my ovaries twitch a little. I'm ready for a baby, the rest of my life, not so much.. gotta get done with school and get a few years of work under my belt...but then, then I'll do the same (and without shame too :D)

  37. These are so beautiful. I had a similar photoshoot with Harper when she was that age and went crazy and took like 200 pictures of her. It was awesome and the lighting was perfect and they are still some of my favorite photos of her as a baby. What a cutie pie he is.

    P.s. Love the invite to visit. I'll be right over :P Hugs! xoxo
