My New Baby

Back in the day, when Daniel and I were but young and sparkly-eyed newlyweds {back in the day=about 12 months ago, give or take}, I told him that someday, someday in the hazy future, once we started having babies, we needed to get a big kid camera.



"Someday" in our minds was after we bought a plant, and then a puppy. After we traveled the world. Went skydiving. Climbed Mt. something something.

Then God laughed at our version of life.

Along came Baby Bean plus two plants from Ikea.

We are rolling in responsibility now.

Yesterday I opened my snazzy new camera.
It's going to capture a whole lotta life.
As we hop around the globe. Jump out of planes. Summit peaks. With Baby Bean and all of his future siblings.

What is your favorite Christmas gift of 2011?

xoxo

AHHHH congrats!!! My husband and I bought a camera on black friday this year. I told him we had to have one before we had babies. Let the baby makings begin!

I can already see your pics. ;)

I could easily roll out 1,327 pics a day. It takes serious self-control.

I got that same camera for my birthday and it definitely wins my favorite gift of 2011. For Christmas, I'd have to go with a pair of black leather boots that my mom picked out for me.

What a wonderful gift!!! I can't wait to get a new camera--we have gone through two cameras this past year...I have butterfingers :( Now I'm using a really crappy one. Well, it makes wonderful videos but really crappy photos. Someday soon I'll have a nice one. Hopefully.

My favorite christmas gift? I have two: the blackhills gold ring my hubs gave me and the crochet purse my sister made for me!

Lynn {hearted girl} said...

oh sweetheart...this line about did me in "Along came Baby Bean plus two plants from Ikea." i love your slant on life!!! it'd be one giggle after another to get to hang out with you, your little man is a lucky boy to have you for his moms. he best prepare to bust a gut daily plus not only are you the best knee slapper producer but you're also as darling as can be with massive sensitivity.

congrats on the camera score - i can see it's being put to good use, all your photos are rad styles. awesome stuff going on, more....more....more...
