About Me

My photo
Thank you for visting my blog. When I started this blog, it was just the vehicle for which I had hoped to share photos of our life in Chicagoland with our loved ones, but it has turned into so much more for me. Life is ever evolving in our household and time no longer stands still. Every moment is precious and worthy of being captured and treasured. In addition, through my love of the camera, I have had the opportunity to meet and also capture moments in others' lives. It is my hope, with this blog, that when my memory fails me, the words and photos on this blog will remind of where we were. History...Through My Glass...

Rain Day

Roan's daycare provider had an emergency today so he spent all day with Choua. He's been loving "The Fox and the Hound" lately, but I thought he was due for some fresh air. I also wanted to get some pictures of him in his little rain boots. He loves these little boots.

I really need to work on my photography. I just learned a few things, but Roan moves around so much and never is facing the camera so I get a lot of shots with him running away. And in the picture above, I am trying so hard to get a facing pciture of him, I forget about placement. Doesn't the car in the background ruin the picture? I guess the only way to learn is to keep taking pictures.

Roan has been active all of his life. I remember when I went for the big ultrasound, the doctor looked around and then said, "Everything looks good," and started putting the instruments away. With my bladder still about to explode, I say to him, "Don't I get a profile picture?" My OB tells me that our baby was too active. He's been into twirling around in circles lately--to the point that he falls down. This always reminds me of the very first ultrasound I had, when he was still a little bean. All I could see was him spinning around so fast.

I need to crop the photo to the right a bit, but I have to move my PS Elements over to our new PC. All I have is the software that came with my camera.

I layered his hair a little so that it would have some shape to it. I'm pretty proud of myself since I didn't think that he'd sit still long enough for me to do it. It's not great, but it was free.

What the heck...why not one more? It's fuzzy...again...but he's just so darn cute!
