Do you ever have those moments that your heart is just beaming with joy watching or thinking about your kids? I am constantly thinking to myself as I watch them – God must have special plans for you. Which, if you know me, is instantly terrifying. To be charged with caring for His special kiddos.
You may remember we bought Evyn a camera. And every once in a while I'll hear her snapping away. It's delightful to watch her. The other day I walked into the room and caught her trying to capture Gregor – as a true photographer would – at his eye level.
Once she heard the click! of my own camera, she whipped around and promptly took a shot of me:
Later that evening, while the girls were sleeping, we downloaded her pictures…some of them going all the way back to our Christmas vacation. James and I grinned from ear to ear with every picture – we could just imagine what her little four year-old brain and eye were mulling over as she snapped each shot.
Seriously, between the self-portraits and pictures of her sister and pictures of her prized possessions….and over forty pictures detailing this piece she made last year (yes, over forty – she could totally be a blogger!)…
…all I could think was man, is this chick cool or what? I am so enamored by and full of love for my girls.
Oh, and that photo she snapped of me? Priceless.
And by the way, in case you care at all– If you're looking for a fun little camera for your kiddo, this one is easy for toddlers to hold and is hardy. BUT, I am sorely disappointed in the quality for how much it costs – and it is pretty difficult to actually take the picture that your little tot is aiming for, because it doesn't actually snap the picture until one or two seconds after they've pressed the shutter. Really, really frustrating. I can't even take pictures with this thing. So skip it and wait for a better version to come out.
