Day 25/365 – The cat roars

Here’s Lucky, my sweet shy cat.  Poor guy has a lead foot, and is not the most nimble, or quiet.  He’s such a lap cat, but ever since I got my second dog Charlie (who loves to chase cats), Lucky has been kinda hanging out in the kitchen.  We try to give him as much attention as possible, and he’s getting braver and braver by sneaking around when the dogs are sleeping.  I wish we could all just get along.


Day 22/ 365 – Eyelashes

I’ve seen a few pictures of photographers catching a small detail on their baby’s faces, like eyelashes or hands.  My daughter has such amazing long eyelashes and I am so jealous because she gets it from her father.  Since she wiggles around so much and is just too fast for me, I asked my husband for a favor and asked him to sit still.  He’ll probably hate that I’m showing the blog world his picture, but here’s my attempt at being “artsy”


Day 20/365 – Playing in the sunlight

And…playing catch up again.  I swear, it’s been kind of difficult to pick up the camera to take daily pictures..or if I do take daily pictures, it’s tough to load the pictures to my laptop every day.  But I’ll keep doing my best!

I love this shot of my daughter staring towards the window, with her signature pose, hands to mouth.


Day 17 and 18/ 365 – Mother and daughter and brunch

This past weekend, I was able to catch up with my friend and her daughter for brunch in Carytown, in Richmond.  The Daily is a cute restaurant on Cary St, and I loved their menu.  Definitely check them out.  The decor was cool, the ambiance was trendy.  Brunch on Sunday was definitely busy, but well worth it.

I took a ton of photos, but this picture was really cute.  I just wish I was able to get my friend’s daughter in focus.  It looks pretty blurry here.

Of course I had to take a picture of my dish as well.  Yay for brunch!

Day 16/ 365 – Baby in a box

I was given some advice to increase my shutter speed so that the camera shake wouldn’t show and that the picture would be more in focus.  What better way to practice this but to put my baby in a box?  She had a blast playing with the packing tissue of all things.  Why spend money on toys when you have an empty box and packing tissue?
