'Moments are the molecules that make up eternity'.
-Neal A. Maxwell
I heard this quote years ago and I've never forgotten it.
Bedtime around here is a special part of our day. We sing songs, say prayers, read books, and have lots of tickles and LOTS of giggles!! My baby is now in a big boy bed (last night he slept in it for the first time and didn't even fall off!) and I can hardly believe how he has grown .
Tonight, daddy was at his weekly soccer game, so it was just me and the kiddo. He grabbed his Bubbaloo (John's teddy bear as a child...now Michael's) and started cuddling with him and being goofy. My camera was in the kitchen, so I quickly grabbed it to capture this candid moment that I never want to forget. I'm pretty sure I think to myself 'He's growing up too fast!' at least once a day. I want to make this time count! Some days I feel like he must be bored out of his mind (think errands, groceries, laundry, stuff like that...) and other days I feel like a pretty good mom because I've planned fun activities and outings. I hope to have more days of the latter! I adore how these photos capture the genuine life of the moment and that they aren't perfect. Ahh, speaking of bedtime...it's mine :)
P.S. I edited these photos quite easily in Lightroom and finished with a few minor adjustments in Photoshop...feel free to ask me questions about my editing techniques...I have nothing to hide :) I really love and appreciate it when artists help each other and share their knowledge. Spread the love I say :)
