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!!
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…
