37/52 - The 52 Project

Delighted to have captured both my boys with my DSLR this week.

Sweet Vincent, your adorableness is beyond comprehension. 

Teague Jackson, you went from a toddler to a preschooler in the blink of an eye. I adore these photos of you with that impish grin, and cracker crumbs on your face.

 I don't know how two baby boys could be any better-looking or any more incredible. I love you both so much!

36/52 - The 52 Project

You guys, this project is proving to be much, much harder than I ever though it would be. Photography, or anything remotely artistic, is on pretty much the lowest rung of my to-do list, along with things like "going out with my friends" and "wearing makeup." Life with two babies is...well, I truly don't know how to describe it. The only way I can think of at the moment, is to say that with one baby, the constant tandem bike ride of the most intense love I've ever felt and the most intense stress and worry and now doubled. Actually, I might even say tripled, as the relationship between my two babies is now like a third child in my life :). I chose just one photo. One of the two of them together. I adore it...and I adore them.

Teague and Vincent. No words, my darlings. I love you so.

35/52 - The 52 Project

Well, I accomplished half of my goal :). I got *one* of my babies with my "real" camera! As much as it seems pulling out my DSLR to capture my babies is redundant and unnecessary when my phone camera is so quick and so easy, I'm always reminded how completely worth it it is! All those details, his sweet chubby baby eyelids, every darling baby lash, and the reflections in his humongous baby phone camera (that I know of!) can even come close! Even more motivated to capture both babies with my DSLR this week!

Vincent - you bring me more joy than I ever thought possible. 

Teague - I love this photo, phone-camera-rific as it is. You have absolutely zero fear. You left mommy and Vincent standing on the sidewalk without a thought, sprinted down the lawn, and swung out into mid-air on the guard rail. There is actually quite a sizeable drop from the first lawn down to the second (hence the guard rail, I'm sure!), so as much as I love your independence and fearlessness, I fear you're making me old before my time :). As much as I'd like to curb your craziness sometimes (your energy surpasses any two-year-old I've ever known!), I love your adventurous spirit and unbridled joy. You're perfect and I adore you.
