Short Stuff ▌Fort Huachuca Photographer, Arizona

We're short on a few things these days. We're short on sleep. We grab 30 minutes of uninterrupted slumber as though it were gold. We're short on balanced meals, but there is always food on the table. We're short on patience from time to time, mostly it's the boys patience with their Mama, who's about six arms short of what she needs. After a marathon laundry day we are no longer short on clean underwear, phew! It's been one month since bringing our little Bundle home from the hospital. He's alert, his cheeks are filling out, he's starting to develop those thighs that only a baby can get away with. He smiles all the time. He loves his bath as long as someone is holding his hand for the duration (see the photo below) One thing is for certain, we are NOT short on love. Love is something we have a whole lot of these days.

Note: Since this little guy loves his bath sooooooo much, I decided that I would attempt a little bath photo session for the "one month old" mark. We took the tub out on our porch, with that amazing evening light I am always bragging about. I used my 50mm lens, stayed at an F5.6 or there abouts, 125-200 shutter speed depending on which of the extra children was blocking my light.

"depending on which of the extra children was blocking my light."

this is giggle worthy. What a serious little man. Love the hand holding bitness.

As I was looking at these, I was formulating my comment to ask if you dragged that poor naked, wet baby out to the porch! :) I love the keen eye you have for the things that make your baby unique, like the bath time hand holding. Really gorgeous images of a growing fellow!

don't you just love the little personalities coming out so early. the hand holding is precious and so glad you captured that on camera. Its uniquely him.

btw. does the bundle have a name. whenever I drop in on your blog I haven't seen a name for him yet other than the bundle.

great to see you still make the time to pick up the camera. sometimes it is so much easier to not bother but then a moment is lost for ever.
