I call him Mr. S

   Oh Gosh. I try, I try. I just (obviously) can't get the kind of results I'd like to w/ my cheapy point & shoot camera. So please know, that I know my pictures are not NEARLY perfect. I love entering photo challenges, not because I think I'm all that, but I think it's great practice & a wonderful learning experience. Plus... I have one handsome fella to gush over & show off! I am having so much fun learning from all of you. I know this road will be a lonnnng one, but I am truly enjoying every minute of it!

On with the cutie-patootie...

   Jax just started doing this,
 oh so adorable placing his  hand on chinny chin chin move.
He especially does this while he watches his fav Nick Jr shows.
I call him Mr S. (serious).

I think it makes my mad genius look extra smart!
He REALLY gets into his shows now,
it's so cute to watch him.

One of the five million Jaxy smiles that makes mama week in the knees

 I'm pretty sure that's dried finger paint on his cheek.

Xoxo, Melanie

Seriously he will be such a lady killer, i think your shots are amazeballs! They look just as good as anyone with a different camera, i am so glad we sent cards to that little girl, so sad!

I'm with you. I don't have a fancy-pants camera (I want one) but I like entering the challenges because I think they are fun. And seriously, how could you not take pics of your son...you'd be crazy?!

That smile is so contagious. I love the bw.

Susan said...

May I just say that you rock your camera! And, I wish we could get Jax and Amy together to play, he seems like such a sweetheart! Love his little hand under his chin :)

By the way, I'm brand new to your blog, followed you over from Grumpy Grateful Moms blog. I just enjoy meeting other moms, so that's why I'm here and following your blog now :)

Adorable Mel!

Also? We HAD this talk; it's not the camera, it's the photographer. You have an incredible gift of creating photos waaaaaaay above the norm with regard to feeling & composition. And your focus is tack-sharp!

Don't make me come down there. Because I *WILL* (I was going to say to pinch you, but really I just want to see the baby!) ;)

You KNOW I love you!!!!

Wow again! You are amazing. I never would have guessed that your camera is a point and shoot. You are so talented! I think you should definitely follow your photography passion and invest in a dslr. Oh the places you'll go with it! Awesome work! I love each and every one of these shots!

Girl, it's not the camera that does the work, it's the photographer and you are right up there with the best of them. Your perspective is great and I love your post processing as well! :0) When you do get a professional camera - WATCH OUT WORLD!! ;0)
