25/52


When ever I sit down Jarvis wants to sit on me. When ever I lay down, Jarvis wants to lay on me. Not beside me, but on me. Often with his fingers in my mouth. Justin and I joke he has a heavy head made of concrete and laying down involves lots of head butts (accidentally, as he fidgets). I got Justin to take a photo, that way we can have a record of this nightly occurrence.

There are a few, Portrait a Week options out there. A lot involve taking a portrait of your children each week. Jodi over at Che and Fidel has inspired me to pick up my camera and turn the focus inward. Since I already take 100s of photos of my children each week, so I thought I would twist the idea a little. What I never seem to get is group shots, images of the family together, whether it is my two children, Tamika and Jarvis, or me with the kids, or shots of Justin and I. So I am going to challenge myself to get one image of "my family" per week.

    1. I do love that he always wants to cuddle. I don't love the head butts and that he always wants his fingers in my mouth.

    1. Why are their heads so hard? At least Jarvis has stopped the biting stage.

  5. What a sweetie, these are the little things that (even though a bit annoying now) you will miss when he grows out of them. I have been doing a monthly linkup "Behind the Camera" trying to get more people -in- photos rather then always just taking them. Would love you to linkup sometime. (its been slow to get off the ground!)

    1. Sound like a great idea! I use to hate getting my photo taken (still do), but then I read an article about how so many Mums get missed out of the family history because they feel like me. So I am attempting to be all inclusive with my image taking. Love to know more about the link up

  7. What a lovely shot. Eve is a limpet too, although she usually squeezes my boobs not my mouth.
