Pix Fix

You'd think that for a mother, photographer, and someone who just lost every single photograph of my boys taken in the last 18 months (courtesy of my computer crashing...) I'd have been furiously taking many more pictures to fill the gap?

Mmmm?

Well... no.

As a person, I used to be very organised - all my priorities in place and colour-coded. Not anymore. No.

Besides, I often find that if I'm photographing a 'moment', I'm not really there to enjoy it...

Anyhoo - I finally took some pictures of my beloved boys this weekend and I am rather sad that Malakai is just not that into smiling for the camera anymore. In fact, as time slips through my fingers, he's becoming more demanding with what will make him smile (and laughing is even more difficult).

So, Malakai is my serious boy right now - with the very occasional smile.






Please note: Malakai does not have a skin disease - that's shaving cream... and in the last picture he's singing... aaahhh cute!

And Harlan is still my little smiler - so easy to amuse!

You have two very good looking sons! I'm so sorry to hear that you've lost all your photo's, I would be devastated but I guess what's the point of that if it's not going to bring it back. Have you formatted your drive already?

No less beautiful sans 'smile'. Both beautiful!
