well, stinkola



the last time i had my stuff together enough to remember to get out from behind the camera with my kids, embrace the camera didn't show up that wednesday. well, this afternoon, i remembered it was wednesday, managed some (tricky) timer shots with Punkin and... guess what.

Dear Emily.

She's a busy soul, to be sure. It hardly matters that I have a post to link up to when girlie has obviously had a crazy week.

Soooo, no embrace the camera. But, I'll just share with you all :)

***and that was what I wrote before. and then, dear Emily. she posted a comment. and then i realized i am a COMPLETE DORK. "we embrace on thursdays" she said sweetly. Doh! No wonder I always have such bad luck linking up on Wednesday! 5 pregnancies seriously have compromised my poor brain.***

moving on...

Originally, I wanted to get Punkin set up for a few close up shots. But, her eyes just weren't smiling today. Didn't take long to see that she just wasn't feeling up to her normal, spunky self.



After trying in vain for a decent shot or two, I just held her on my lap for a while. Then I saw us in the mirror and thought of embrace the camera.



I think self-timers are so hard. Maybe I just need to practice more. But, man. The focus gets me every time.



Punkin thought the scramble to get ourselves settled before the blinking red light went off was a fun game. She perked up a bit and didn't mind taking all the timer pictures.





I'm always glad when I get in the photos. Even when I'm wearing the same charcoal fleece every. single. time. I get cold! Yay for embracing the camera with my little girlie this week! Thanks for the encouragement, Emily!
