In April (ugh where has the time gone) I was able to go visit my cute sister and her darling family in Phoenix. I met my new nephew “T” and spent lots of girl time with my 2 yr old niece “A”. So fun to spend time around girls. Of course I had to this meant some photo time Can you believe the hair on my niece?? I am so jealous of her hair. I keep praying my sister and her family will somehow end up here in Utah. A sister can hope?
I started off the year trying to be better about capturing my own life. I did pretty well for a few weeks..isn’t that how it always goes? Then Instagram was released for Android phones..woot!woot! (You can follow my Instagram feed, my user name is Imagesbyjami) And I just started posting daily photos to Instagram, but while those photos look great on phones or as thumbnails on Facebook, I still want to have my family’s life documented and documented as art. I did not want each slice of our life to have a funny filter applied to the whole picture, have lots of grain, or only be square pictures. So alas I come back to my “Glimpse” project and capturing the moments in my family’s life, the moments that make my heart sing.
This week’s Glimpse is a series of photos of my youngest. Of my 5 boys I only have 1 that will still take baths. Not only will he take them..he actually WANTS to take them. (if you have boys you know getting boys to WANT to take a bath/shower can be difficult) I will miss bath time..there is nothing like snuggling with a clean smelling little boy. So I wanted to make sure and document this part of my life before it slips away.
Sometimes it is fun to watch from a far..
