My Favorite Age: One and a Half!

I’ve always said that I’m not much of a newborn baby person. I mean, newborns are cute…and snuggly…and they smell so good…and they’re incredibly cute (oh wait, I said that). But it’s not my favorite stage.

There’s another age that feels like heaven to me. It’s at this age that little ones start really discovering the world around them. They’re mostly walking by this age, and saying a few words — but they’re not quite toddlers yet.

That age is one and a half. Oh, how I love this age!

Why Your Photo Outtakes Can Be Just As Special

As a mommy, I love taking photos of my little man every chance I get. As I’m looking through my photos and picking out my favorites to edit, I tend to go through the photos quickly and delete any that are blurry and aren’t the best. While this DOES save room on my hard drive, I’ve had to stop myself a couple times and remember to keep some of the photos that maybe are a little blurry and don’t seem “perfect.” These photos show action, personality, funny moments and real life. Babies are wiggly and on the move, sometimes a blurry photo is perfect at capturing just that! So as you are looking through your photos, don’t forget to save some of those outtakes for later. ;)
