Outtakes

Life has been busy. A little too busy for my liking. I haven't had any time for this blog, and for the first time in my life I'm dealing with stress/tension headaches. I'm daily learning how to juggle all of my responsibilities. Who would have thought taking care of a nine month old (who isn't the world's best napper) would take up nearly all of my time? I've been spending a lot of time praying about and seeking wisdom on simplifying. I'm currently reading Organized Simplicity written by Tsh Oxenreider who blogs over at Simple Mom. If you need a good book to add to your reading list, I recommend this one.

Today while Crosbi was playing I got out my camera to try a couple of tips I had seen online. What better subject than a baby on the move? These photos aren't polished by any means, and to be honest, I don't put photos like these online much because I often care too much about what people think to show my real life. That's another thing I'm working on. It is a growing season around here!

Back to the photos. Here are the outtakes. Crosbi isn't in a cute outfit. In fact, she's not wearing clothes at all. Her diaper is totally full. She's teething, so she's drooling and has a runny nose, yet her blue eyes still sparkle like diamonds. She's beautiful no matter what. That's a lesson that will be taught early in our house.

This is my real life. Even in the outtakes, I'm one blessed girl.


Those eyes! Are you kidding me??


 I just love that squinty-eyed smile.




Todd calls this her Popeye face. A little blurry, but still hilarious!


 My big girl learning to climb up and down the step.


 She claps at all of her accomplishments. I hope she always has such beaming confidence.


I'm sure thankful for that little girl. She's helping me keep it real.

  4. PRECIOUS! Her eyes really are stunning. She is so lovely, inside and out! I hear you completely on being overwhelmed...it's hard to understand how your days can be so filled when with one little child. But they are! I think taking the time to capture the little moments like these is awesome and reminds me that's what it's all about.
