How many photos can we take of a tiny human?

Answer: lots.

I realized a few weeks ago that this baby is constantly changing.  I then burst into tears and wailed to the Lumberjack “are we taking enough pictures to remember everything?!” and he unfortunately said “probably not” so now I have about a thousand pictures of a sleeping baby and they all look the same.  Cute, but still.  The baby is sleeping.  It’s not all that interesting.

However!  Last week my brother, sister-in-law and nephew (eeeee!!!!!) were in town, so my mom scheduled a family photo shoot.  So now we have some photos where you can actually see my kid looking like an interesting little person.

See?  Instead of sleeping, he’s just sleepy.

I’m also taking videos of him where I film him sitting there as I narrate the various tasks he’s accomplished lately.  They go something like this:

Atticus: (stares blankly at the camera)

me: Hello, sweetpea!  Today is October 25 and you are almost 2 months old!

Atticus: (rolls eyes slowly towards the wall)

me: Today we went on a picnic!  You screamed a lot.

Atticus: (blinks eyes three times)

me: I put you on your stomach for tummy time.  You hated it.

Atticus: (slides sidewise)

me: You’re still the cutest baby ever!

Atticus: (spits up a bunch of milk all over himself)

me: oops.

  1. Enough photos can never be taken. We have purchased an external hard drive for the roughly 10,000 photos of C sleeping and lying on the floor. Wait until little guy starts DOING stuff. Now, all I do all day long is take pictures. And they are actually interesting and fun!

    You look great! Whar a beautiful family! I am just now starting to lose some weight because I’ve been eating vegetarian for several weeks. It’s about damn time.

  2. These are wonderful! Especially the last one. I realized A2 is almost 2 months old and we don’t have a single WHOLE fam photo. You know, with both parents and both kids. SOON, we will all be decent enough to make someone take it of us. Probably.
