Day 18- Eyes

My baby's blue eyes. They are simply breathtaking. People always stop me to comment on her eyes. I love them. I'm not sure where she gets them from, one of her uncles I think, but she didn't get them from Chris or I.

So I haven't taken day 15 or day 17 yet. So we will come back to those. I am leaving for vacation in the morning and wanted to make sure I got these up before I left. Sorry to be jumping around but I need a little more practice to get those right.

Day 14: Someone you love

Well this one was easy.  I take many, many, many pictures of someones I love every single day.  First there is my Rowe Baby...
You like his stick dinosaur?  The rock is its head.  He's so smart. 
Then there is little miss PhePhe...
Oh, she makes me smile.  I had to use an old picture of her (as in a week old) because she wasn't feeling well.  She is having some allergies lately.  Her nose is running and her poor eyes are so red and puffy since she keeps rubbing them.  Poor little one.
Then there is my husband.  I love the man, I really do.  Even when this is what he does every single time I pointed the camera at him...
He can be such a pain. 

**************on a completely different note*****************

My lovely mother in law got me 3 months of a fruit of the month club subscription for my birthday.  My first shipment finally showed up yesterday.  I was so excited I barley had time to clean them off before we devoured them.
 Aren't they pretty?  They tasted amazing!  They were juicy and delicious and I loved every single bite!
 So did Rowen.  He was probably eating them faster than I was.  And I wasn't paying very good attention because Phoebe got ahold of mine.  I figured she already had it in her mouth she might as well get to try her first strawberry. 
 She loved it! 
 It was so juicy!

And there was NOTHING left of it.  Little miss loves her some berries.  She had blackberries for breakfast and strawberries for lunch.  Nothing wrong with a little fruit.

Days 12 & 13

So I took a couple days off while my husband was home.  Its so nice when he is actually home I tend to forget everything else.  But now I'm back and he's in Chicago.  That seems about normal for us. 
Day 12 was a sunflare.  I almost forgot to take this picture and then I rushed outside right before sunset to get it.  This is the first time I've tried to do this but I'll be playing around with sun flares some more in the future.
Day 13 was something that reminds you of childhood.  I thought a lot about this.  The things that remind me of childhood are snow, running in the sprinkler and hanging clothes on the line.  Those are my very strong memories.  Its June and the temp is no where near freezing so snow was out of the question.  I don't have a sprinkler or a clothesline so I had to keep thinking.  That's when I saw Phoebe doing what she does every single day: playing with Rowen's Tonka trunks.  This brought back a flood of memories of my baby brother Toby playing in his sandbox with his Tonka trunks.

Day 11: Silhouette

This was a fun picture to take.  Rowen was a great little model.  He had so much fun standing around letting me take his picture. 
I really love this challenge.  When I first got my camera I used to play with it all the time but I haven't been lately.  I used to know how to use all the different functions and took some really cool pictures.  But then I got lazy and just used the point and shoot function.  My pictures haven't been very good for awhile and I'm so excited to start relearning how to use my camera.  Plus, for the first time since I was in high school I've started editing my pictures again.  I love some of my finished products.  Like this picture.  I love it.  It makes me smile. I want to put it on my wall.  I love knowing that I took this and I made it look like this.  I've realized that the more I learn the more I want to learn.

Day 10: Animal

I had a terrible time trying to get a picture of an animal.  I should of just done what Rowen suggested and taken a picture of him playing with his dinosaurs.  But I was bound and determined I was going to photograph a real animal.  My lovely dog is kind of a PITA.  He will not sit still.  He gets extremely excited when he gets shown the slightest amount of attention, so taking a picture of him that didn't end up being blurry was nearly impossible.  I finally got this one.
Meet Sulley.

Day 9: Fresh Fruit

My mother in law gave me a wonderful present for my birthday this year.  She gave me a subscription to a fruit of the month club from Harry and David.  I am so thrilled about this gift!  It was so thoughtful and original.  I love it!  I would love it even more if my fruit would ever arrive.  I'm still waiting on my May fruit even though I received the letter from H&D saying they were on their way.  I might call.  So I was hoping I would be able to photograph my fresh strawberries from May or even the mango's from June... but I still have no fruit.  Boo!
So instead I decided to take pictures of my tomatoes on my back deck because yes, tomatoes are a fruit.

And my little farmer too...
