Boston the photographer

I know, I know. Never let your 15 month old play with your cell phone. Well, I did and now I'm on my second one (and I even let him play with that one). Mom's just do just about anything to keep their little one's entertained. Ok, I probably go beyond anything sometimes but I never would have known about his talent of using my camara phone had I listened to the advice. So, he has figured out how to take pictures with the phone and I just wanted to show off his remarkable talent (I found out that if you just keep pushing the menu button over and over it gets you to the camara, BUT it takes a lot of patience to keep pushing that button over and over!!!) They are all in the car and on 2 different days. The first is of his feet and mom and dad's legs. I think this one has more of a modern fusion artsy feel to it. He wanted a main subject, but with a different view. The theme is "We can all walk".

I still can't figure out why he took the second one and what he was trying to portray. As soon as he can talk, I'll ask him. I think it's a little impressionistic myself.

Then there are 2 portraits of me! I am very flattered to be the subject of 2 of his works.

I'm so proud of my little photographer. Now if I can just teach him not to put the camara in his mouth.

Shot day!!!

So, I have been trying to start this blog for some time now. It would've been perfect to start it after our family trip to Lake Tahoe and tell about how wonderful that was, or our weekend trip up to Northern California and all the fun things we did, but no. I am going to start it on the day I spent 3 and 1/2 hours at the Dr. with Boston while he got 7 shots, one every 15 minutes. Well, blogs are to write anything you want, so this is as good a time as any, right? Boston has an egg allergy and had to get his MMR shot at an allergist so they could monitor his reaction. The MMR vaccine has an egg protien base. So, they slowly administer the vaccine slowly going deeper and deeper under the skin. I had been dreading this day since we made the appointment 2 months ago, but it wasn't nearly as dreadful as I thought it would be. Boston was so brave and did so well. He did cry and run to me anytime he thought the door was going to open and when he got the shots, but he got over each one fairly quick and we just had so much fun in between. Can you imagine trying to entertain a 15 month old wiggly boy in a small Doctor's office for 3 hours with needles coming in every 15 minutes? He did so good and even walked out happy and smiling!!! I think we have a stronger bond because of it!!!! I took some pictures with my phone to document the event. Look at that happy boy!!!
