Geneva Joy [Just Brand New]

Lifestyle Personal

New babies are like campfires – you can watch them for hours and all at once nothing changes and everything changes.

Froggy legs

Wrinkled knees

Flexed toes

Tight, tiny, mad fists

A tongue that sticks out when she cries

And a big brother who climbs into the middle of all things baby and loves and loves and loves.

Meet my new little lady.

Five Minute Project || A Little Camera Practice
When I started doing the Five Minute Project a couple of years ago, I thought I'd probably play along for a few months and then move on. But here I am, two years later, still really enjoying the practice of it. Last week, on a phenomenally gorgeous day, Briggs said to me, "Hey Mama! Let's play with our cameras!" Oh sweet boy, you don't have to ask me twice! He photographed his favorite subject and I photographed him. I hesitated to share these photos on the blog-o-sphere. On one hand, my mama heart LOVES them and sees them as beautiful. When I look at them, I see my little boy growing creatively and I see just how much he adores his sis ...
