Frank was at work so Frankie was my only subject. My mind started racing with what I could pick. His curly blonde ringlets? His funny long toes? The way he likes to stick his lower lip out, puff out his cheeks, and blow "pppppppppp" sounds?
At first I thought I would use this phone photo I took over the weekend:
Frankie is normally a side or back sleeper so it cracked me up how he was sleeping curled up on his belly like that.
But then I figured the whole point of this project was to use my "real camera" more, plus it felt like cheating to use a photo I took before the challenge.
So I decided to try and get a photo of his cute and hilariously long toes. It proved harder than I expected since every time I got close, he tried to eat the camera.
Well hello to you too, little man.
So I decided to distract him with a book.
Frankie loves his board books. He will sit for 15 or 20 minutes at a time picking up one book at a time and carefully flipping through the pages. In fact, two weeks ago, he said his first word—I was pointing at books and saying "Book, book" when Frankie softly repeated, "Booo... kkkuhhhh." I kind of flipped out. Is he my child or what?
Plus an extra "physical quirk" shot of his crazy wet hair after a bath this morning:
Ok, Day 1, over and out! I'm really rocking this thing so far! ;)
