Picture Parade!

I'm not going to apologize (again) for not writing as often as I promised I would.  Instead, I'll give you some photographic peace offerings.

I have an amazingly talented friend who has been taking pictures for us since our wedding.  He's done all of Aidan's photos since his newborn shoot and we are so lucky to know him.  He even manages to make us look presentable - not the easiest task.

Anyway, Kingston came over a couple of weekends ago to take some pictures for our Christmas cards.  Aidan wasn't massively cooperative, and it doesn't exactly look wintery out, but what can you do?  Here are some favorites.

Of course it's Christmastime.  See my snowman socks?

I think this thing has some "outside" on it...

Here Mommy, you can have it...


And a gratuitous shot of The Mama, just because she looked pretty that day.

For what it's worth, we did eventually get one for the Christmas card, which I'm not posting here in case you're getting one in the mail (which would require me to address them, stamp them, and mail them - so don't hold your breath).  


  1. Your friend is a very talented photographer (and I'm insanely picky when it comes to photographers).

    I had been thinking about your last post. I ran into a stranger at the mall, and she talked to my son. I usually have a strong intuitive sense about how people are feeling, and I sensed that she was in a lot of pain. I asked her how she was doing, and she gave mer a standard socially expected "I'm fine" response. I looked at her and said, "are you sure everything is fine?" She looked a bit started and said she was, and how kind it was of me to ask. I don't know if I was wrong about her pain, or if she just didn't want to share her life with a perfect stranger (which is completely understandable), but the truth is that if I could have helped that woman by listening I would have been more than happy too (at least until my kid got bored and had a meltdown). It is quite possible there are people in your life who care and want to hear more than just the standard "I'm fine" response to how you are doing. And plus we blog readers care - we wouldn't be here if we didn't care about you. So please always feel free to write here about what you are going through if our commenting can help.

    1. I'm so glad that you were there for her. The fact that you asked and truly cared probably really meant a lot to her. And it means a lot to me that you're here for me. Thank you so much :)

  2. These came out awesome. He is so adorable and you look fantastic!
