Adventures in... bath bubbles on the kitchen floor, a sunny monkey, & the kitchen sink

This is why i love taking pictures.
An ordinary Monday morning turned extraordinary.

We had our tunes blasting.
Sunshine shining on my sunny boy,
as he takes a bath in the kitchen sink.
Mama dancing like a mad fool, as she puts dishes away.

I love my normal every day life.

I want to always remember THIS moment.

Capturing pure Jax.
The the most beautiful little soul,
so full of life.

Love this kid like crazy,
(even if he gets mama's new hardwoods soaked!)


We've made bath time w/ Teddy a regular thing!
















Fabulous Friday, Favorite Photo of the Week,

Wow Melanie- these are amazing. They are such great memories to have frozen in time.

You really do capture fantastic moments in a wonderful way! I love them all. And I remember my nephew was obsessed with having his stuffed animals take baths with him. He liked wet animals so much he would even give them their own baths in the bathroom sink when no one was looking!

Thank you my sweet Nessa!! I have PS Elements 9, but haven't got comfortable w/ it yet. I LOVE Picnik, & that's what I always use. It is so user friendly, & I've had so much fun playing around on it! Xo
