Black and white just seemed like a perfect fit for this picture of Lily. Brings the focus totally onto her face!

Specs: 35mm lens, ISO 400, F 3.2, 1/60, removed scratches from her face, sharpened her eyes a bit and then made B&W with Photoshop Elements 6.0

Honestly, as I write this post I’m thinking a more appropriate “Snapshots of Life” would be a series of pictures of crying almost-4 year olds. Drama, drama, drama here right now! Instead, I’ll pretend my life is all fun adventures and smiling children!

A few weeks ago we made volcanoes.

The boys got a kick out of taking turns pouring all of the “ingredients” into the cup and then watching it bubble over.

And finally, a Lily video! Yesterday morning Lily rolled over from back to front for the first time. She’s 4.5 months old, so she definitely beat the boys to this milestone – such a little overachiever! My obsessive attempts at catching her rolling on video paid off, because I managed to catch her very first time on video. Of course, it also means I have 40 short clips on our video camera of her not rolling over, but I got the big one so that’s all that counts. Right?

      Helen - Don’t encourage him, Jen! Oh wait… he doesn’t read my blog, so I guess he won’t see your encouragement. Ha!ReplyCancel
