Since I’m behind, I’m thankful for toys that last through and have been played with by 5 kids. Nothing like the classics.
I am so thankful for my Braden. My sweet, smart, beautiful boy. Everyone’s favorite brother. The most easy going kid in this house. He makes being a mom easy. That asthma, oh how I hoped he would have outgrown it by now, it keeps me on my toes. I hate that he has to struggle with it. I hate asking him if he needs to go to the hospital. We built this house with him in mind, no carpet, mega filters, no animal fur anywhere. And still he suffers.
I took cupcakes to his class on Friday and I was thrilled to see quite possibly the best 5th grade class ever. Everyone said thank you, everyone was kind to each other, they laughed, they were sweet. I am so thankful he has those kids to see everyday.
Happy Birthday to the best 11 year old on the planet.
And when it’s one boy’s birthday, it’s everyone’s birthday around here. And I love that!<3
I had something else totally in mind for today, but I couldn’t find my camera for a while to take the shot, so it will wait for another day. When I pulled this up tonight, my first reaction was, “that is so Lylah!”
And then (photographer geek stuff ahead…)— It’s sharp! I took this on the fly, literally turned around, focused and snapped. It’s ƒ/1.6 with my 50/1.4. This Canon 5DIII and the fact that it can focus is like a miracle! I can count her eyelashes. So today, I am thankful that canon fixed that focus system that was so flawed in the 5dii. Oh and those extra focal points…also thankful for those.
