Life at 1572: Little Daddy

Little Daddy

I have been very busy trying to clean and get rid of the clutter in this house. We have quickly filled it up, and are outgrowing the space we have. Housing is too expensive here in California to even consider getting a home with more room, so for now I have to decide what stays and what goes. Is it sad that three trash bags came out of decluttering the kitchen alone? I turned what used to basically be junk cabinet into an organized space for my cookbooks, and Jack’s art supplies. He has so much art stuff I needed a place to contain it all.

He was being so sweet to Baby Jacob.

Next I tackled his play area. Rearranging things, and going through his toy box with a fine tooth comb. All those little cars and pieces of things drive me nuts! They end up collecting in the very bottom of the toy box never to be played with again. He has so many toys that I can’t even fit them into his play area right now. I’ve decided to set up a bin in the garage with current toys that way I can swap them out every so often. I find this more useful because he plays with things better if he hasn’t seen them in a while. Due to the overabundant toy situation I am just now getting out his play kitchen that he received in Mo at Christmas. I got it out of the box, and put it together for him. You haven’t seen a happier kid. He got busy cooking, stirring, and cutting up all his fruit. I put out a few other “new” toys for him, and he attached himself to his water baby, or Baby Jacob as Jack has affectionately named him after his cousin baby Jacob. Baby Jacob was having a heck of a time. He was crying, tired, and very hungry according to Jackson. He even needed to have a cool down in the refrigerator for a while. I had fun watching him use his imagination to stir up all sorts of play ideas.

Ronda thanks for your kind compliments. I work really hard on my photography. I read many books, and have studied as much as I can on the internet. I am hoping to sign up for an online workshop in July. I would love to take pictures for a living one day. I’m just not sure I am good enough. I have a lot of self doubt when it comes to these things. Zach pushes me he told me to just do it, and put some stuff on craigslist, and see what I get, but that makes me very nervous! I wish I had more friends and family close to practice on a bit more, and build more of a portfolio. Jackson isn’t a very willing subject when it comes to the picture taking! If it ends up being nothing than a hobby I am passionate about then I will be happy with that. That being said the above pictures aren't that great because of the low light I had to use flash. This house has horrible lighting. I told Zach part of our picking process of a new house with be based on the lighting. Haha.

Oh don't I remember those days with the little toy cars. Jack is just like his daddy. Don't let him see you take them out though, he'll tell you he cant get rid of them. LOL OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND. Poor Baby Jacob being cooled down. LOLOL


You are wonderful at taking pictures and need to quit doubting yourself. I am constantly saving the ones you post and everyone I show has nothing but GREAT things to say about them. You truly have the talent. Even the ones Jack doesn't cooperate with are truly cute. I agree with your hubby, list them. What have you got to lose? You just may surprise yourself.

Love you all.

Go for it Amy! You don't have to use your family for props. When you guys go to the beach, Disney World, whatever do candid's of anyone you see. Children playing, families.. Candids make the best pictures anyway. You capture a person as they truly are! And being in California you have beautiful landscapes to take. I always wanted to pursue a career in photography but it just didn't work out for me. But I haven't given up on the idea! Reach for your dreams!

Wow, Baby Jacob does mean alot to him, he's wrapped up in Jack's "B"!
I just love 2-3 yrs olds!! Its good he has the imagination to stay busy with "play life" stuff.
Guess thats why I like the nursery church so much, watching the kids play.
