However, I usually always have my phone with me. That doesn't mean that I am a super technical person nor am I obsessed with my phone and can't live without it. But like most people these days, I have it with me and it's quite handy when I need to capture a good shot. I don't always have the big camera with charged batteries ready to go. Life happens fast these days so I am always ready with the camera on my phone on between times!
I thought I'd share a few pictures I have taken with my phone over the last few weeks. (If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen several of these).
Ready or not, here we go...
Parker doesn't much like riding in his stroller these days. (I guess he's older and too mature for such baby things!). He prefers to walk or ride on one of his toys. However, the other night while John was at a Bible study, he wanted to go for a stroller ride so I obliged.
A couple of weeks ago we were out running errands on a Friday night and needed to pick up a couple of things at the grocery store. We let Parker take his shopping cart from home to put our items in. He had a big time!
Parker is still enjoying his trampoline. One Friday morning we put it in the front yard so he could soar and enjoy the beautiful day.
This isn't the best picture, but I recently painted this canvas for Parker's room. I hung it above his nightstand and lamp.
Two Wednesdays ago, it was my turn to take goodies to Bible study. I enlisted Parker's help in making the oatmeal cinnamon chip cookies. He's really starting to enjoy helping me with baking. It does my heart good to think of all of the memories we will make in the kitchen together.
While change is all around us, one thing that hasn't changed is Parker's love for the outdoors. He goes outside for a while at least once a day, more if our time and schedule allow. He's not going to be a happy camper when it starts getting dark after dinner - we usually play outside after we eat until it gets dark. We will have to make some adjustments so we can work in more outside time at another part of the day.
John took this picture on his phone and I know it could win a contest. How perfect is it? They were out looking for grasshoppers. Parker actually wants to hold them and catch them now. This is one of my new favorite pictures.
I made this collage for Parker's bathroom - a couple of my favorite bath pictures of him.
Daddy and Parker like to play "swish" in the hallway. One of the things I love about our house is our long hallway with a wood floor. It's perfect for basketball and bowling games, rolling and bouncing balls, racing cars and trains...more things to come I am sure.
Parker and Leah were finally able to meet. Leah is my step-brother Cipri's daughter. She and Parker are four months apart, but this is the first time for them to be together. Leah has a little brother or sister on the way - exciting!
Until we meet again...
