The challenge this week at I Heart Faces is to incorporate a heart or hearts into a picture that also includes a human face. During one of Lily’s middle of the night feedings late last week, an idea struck me: what if I had the boys lay on the floor in the shape of a heart and placed Lily in the middle?
What a silly, tired mom I am! Why did I think that would be easy to pull off with three 3 year olds? Nick watched me attempt it on Saturday and just laughed. Finally, after the laughing husband left the room, and the fighting over who got to be at the top and who “had” to be at the bottom ended, we got what somewhat resembles a heart. Look closely and tell me you see it. Please! You know what… even if you don’t see it, nod along, smile and say “awww”. Do it for the exhausted mom!
You have until Tuesday night to enter yourself, and I recommend attempting a less frustrating shot 😉
Very cute and creative!
Very sweet! Great photo!
I love this shot. Well done!
haha! I see it! (and I’m not just saying that for a tired mom 😉 )
Sooo sweet though! <3
I love this! So creative.
Very Creative and nice processing!
Very cool idea!
pretty awesome! shoot, i had to enter a “vintage” shot, though i thought about trying to get them to make hearts with their hands or something.
So creative! I wanna try that with my kiddos now!!
I see it. So creative. Great job!
I see it and love it! Great Pic!
awesome and so creative!
What a cute idea! It’s adorable!
I saw the heart when it was just a thumbnail on Facebook.! So cute – perhaps even worth the frustration. 🙂
It’s perfect Helen! What fun to look back on it years from now!
Oh that is just the cutest picture ever!!
awesome! wow they are so good!
my goodness what patience you have! And it paid off! You captured a very sweet and very creative moment with your babies… very nice job =)
Adorable! That’d make a good Valentine’s Day card picture for Nick and/or other relatives. :>)
Of course we see it! Clear as day and we love it, though you probably don’t know half of us! 😉
very creative. great job
too cute! love it!
I definitely see the heart and think it turned out really cute! Quite creative!
I feel your pain though…last year for Valentine’s Day, I got the *great* idea to have my twins lay on the ground to spell out all of the letters to make the word “LOVE”. Such a seemingly easy project was a bit more difficult when working with squirmy, uncooperative 2 year olds!
aww… so cute.. they are so cooperating and great idea. Hows Nick’s reaction after this photo taken. :p
What wonderful children! This is a great shot!
That is the BEST pic I have ever seen! You are a GENIUS! Maybe an exhausted one, but nonetheless. 🙂 Perfect!
This is awesome!
Such a good idea!
Adorable. You know next time I bet if you could get just one boy to cooperate you could use the clone tool in photoshop and none of us would be the wiser. 😉
It’s so sweet to see how the boys are reacting to the ne baby. You have adorable kids.
