Childhood. It goes by so fast. I feel like there are so many things I could have done with this, but the shot I got really reflects her childhood right now. Innocent, happiness, love. It’s amazing how much love and happiness they can have for an inanimate object. This is her first teddy bear. I remember buying it at Babies R Us before she was born. I took 3 month old pictures of her with it, back in the days of a thrown white sheet as a backdrop. Here she is 4 years later, hugging her with so much love. Sometimes he’s a he, sometimes she’s a she. He or she has had so many names in the past few months. But no matter what, she always has the same love for that teddy bear.
I am a couple weeks behind, and week 6, Pampered, is actually from the week before Valentine’s Day. My week was not very pampered, so the idea is not very creative. Hopefully though, I will be using those cards soon to pamper myself! I’m so glad Melissa did a shot of her little boy in Pampers. I thought of something like that, but my son wears cloth diapers so it wouldn’t have made sense! I love when we get to involve our kids in the shots. Not only do we get to do our project, but capture a memory as well.
This week – button. There are so many possibilities with buttons. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do. And then it hit me the other night that I wanted to capture this time in our lives. These moments of seeing my daughter become so much more independent. It seems so simple – buttoning a coat. But a year ago, I don’t think she could do that all by herself. It’s these things that we just take for granted, but it really is so fascinating to realize that these simple tasks that we know how to do take time and practice for their little bodies. It truly is liberating to see life it the eyes of a child.
