boys are wondrous | life. right now. | a 365 project | ten

March 10, 2011

it often seems like girls grab all our attention.

they are pretty. soft. giggly. sweet.

you can dress them up.

pink, pink and more pink.

but boys.

ahhhh boys are wondrous.

they fly under our radar.

overlooked but every bit as wonderful as girls.

just different.

wondrously so.

the next time you see your son- really look at him.

look at those beautiful eyes, mouth…messy hair and mischievous grin.

one day this young guy will be a man.

a man.

wow. really?

give him just as many hugs as you give your daughter.

    Beautiful. The words, the pictures, all of it. As a mommy to 3 boys, I can attest to their wondrousness. I wouldn’t trade being a mommy to boys for the world. They have a hold on my heart like no one else, and to think that God entrusted me to be their mommy and raise them to be loving, gentle, and Godly men is an honor like no other.

    Great post, Amy Beth!

not that kind of tater! | life. right now. | a 365 project | nine

March 10, 2011

Ok my kids’ latest mission? Find every creepy crawly thing they can…

…and then have my take photos.

This really tests the bug phobias I have.

Caterpillar. Not tooo bad.

But Potato Bug?


My two assistants Miss E and PZ stood close by in case I passed out.

{only kinda kidding}

And I think this little guy was hurt and he was spinning around all over so that’s why all the weird angles.

splish splash

life is funny. as a kid you just want to get bigger. grow up. be a grown up.

when you’re a grown up. you wish you were smaller. want to be younger.

i love being a child photographer because i want to be smaller. younger.

to remember.

birthday parties with rainbow cupcakes.

a two piece swimsuit without care or worry.

sleeping in and waking up to saturday morning cartoons.

laughing from my belly with abandon.

playing house.

dressing up in mom’s heels.

bubble baths.

oh how i miss those bubble baths!

how blessed i am to actually capture these moments for my girls so that one day…when they struggle to remember-

they can look at all these pictures i took.

no matter how random. out of focus.

and smile.

bubbles bubble bubbles

water splashing everywhere.

tub swimming.

wrinkled fingers and toes.

random tub toys.
