I didn't document them enough

I think back to things we've done this summer as a family and I have several pictures. Every pictures bring a new and beautiful memory of our life together. But when I think back to the Christmas holiday last year, I have a hard time finding my memories. Life as a new mom. Snuggling with my newborn. Holding him close to smell his sweet milky breath. Why can't I find these memories? I didn't document them enough.

I have a few pictures here and there, but not many. So the other day, I made the decision, "I will learn to use the self-timer and I WILL document memories with my son." Here's my first.

Granted it's not very good, but it's something. Not for anyone else, but for me. I didn't have any make-up on. I still hadn't even gotten dressed. Yet, I will cherish this "10 month-old-mommy-and-me" photo forever. And will hopefully remember to make some more "mommy-and-me's" every once in awhile.

Tyler took these when he saw me frantically trying to work the self-timer in the backyard. (I love that guy!) :)

Get out there and get in some pics WITH your kids :)


  1. I love these - and you are so right! I am trying to capture more and more of me with them. I NEVER want to forget. You have such a cutie on you hands.
    Our little baby boys are close in age. Malachi will be a year old in 9 days... Oh my has the year FLOWN by!

  2. I don't have enough pictures of myself with my babies either. Practically none at all. I don't like to be in front of the camera as much as I like to be behind it. But I guess I should put that behind me and just do that for my children.
    By the way. I love your look in the bottom set of three pictures that Tyler took. You look so pretty in the brown top and I should have mentioned that to you on Sunday when I talked with you!! Brings out those lovely brown eyes!!!
