So this year I have a rather momentous birthday and one that gets you thinking. What should I have done before this age and what do I want to do before I double this age (if I am afforded that opportunity). Last week my friend's cousin came over with her 1 month baby girl, Layla Grace. I got one whiff of that baby and for a split second (and I mean a very split second) I went back to having my own three. Now keep in mind that this new mommy is still in that "Oh I love being a mom to this perfect angel" stage and rightfully so. Janine and I, as somewhat veteran moms just winked at one another.
So of course I had to grab my camera and start shooting. She was too darn cute not to photograph.
People say that when you hold a baby you have these maternal instincts to have another baby Not Me! My mind starts wondering if I can have a baby just to photograph it. But I don't go all baby ga-ga nor do my loins yearn for another baby. (Did I really say "loins yearn" in a blog post?). But I do wonder how I can finagle a baby as a photographic prop.
I am thinking that after a few (ok a ton) photographs she was about ready to be done with me and of all the nerve she tried to give me the finger!!
(Ha wrong finger! Don't worry girl, that comes in time)
And in case anyone was wondering, no I do not need a baby fix and do not want to babysit, nor change diapers, nor stay up all night and while we are on that subject, I have this tendency to drop my kids in doubles so any thoughts of that are off the table. But………..they are cute to photograph. I still am trying to figure out a way to have a cute baby around just to photograph.
Thanks Danielle for the baby fix. She is a beautiful angel.
Now back to the issue at hand….what to do with the second half of my life. Hmmmm, going to have to think about that one so stay tuned…
