The Mamatography Adventure continues. Sorry this is so late. All got put on hold while I travelled to Europe with my little one to surprise my mom for her birthday. Sadly no photos of her ‘OMG face’ when she opened the door to us!… and in fact the photos here are of the week BEFORE we went. I have kept up taking a photo every day – it was just the uploading that got left behind!
So, here they all are:
drinking one of her favourite drinks: coconut water :)
friends enjoying a picnic in the park :)
[If only I could get them to pose somewhere with a prettier/simpler background, this would have been an awesome shot!]
asleep in the car while still reading a book!
[not the best photo I have ever taken, artistically or technically – along with many other so-so photos that pop up when I have to publish something every day, even when I really haven’t produced anything ‘good’ – but still a cute moment of a girl I love!]
horrible picture of me (well… just woken up) but cute moment, captured by my hubby (so, slight cheat, here). Moments later: I read by myself!
(also taken by NinjaDad, on his phone)
I have (finally) inherited my hubby’s old iPhone 3… so here I am experimenting with (oh, yes, the ubiquitous) instagram ap. I like it. It is fun and easy. My only pet complaint is how long it took me to learn how to do these kinds of effects on Photoshop (well, not the blur, that is just shoddy work), then this ap comes along and does it with one push of a button!! Coh!… On the other hand, hey, I can do it with one push of a button! :D
More experiments, little more artsy, now:
love this, must say!
who got mail?
yet more budding friendship:
Pipoca is really all about the social scene, right now. The thing she is most into, it seems to me is hanging out with her friends – and it seems to work best with other girls. The boys, so far, are more likely to run away or push her away if she attempts to start any play like passing a ball, taking turns with a toy or whatever. Girls (the two pictured in this week’s stream, anyway) were super receptive and even likely to initiate exchanges themselves. It appears to me, from this tiny sample (and next to no reading) that girls are much more into the social and imaginative play at this stage (around age 2). I am sure there are exceptions (girls who don’t want to play with others that much, yet, and boys who do) but this is really just reporting our experience of the last few weeks. Do you find this is the same among your toddler and their friends?
And just ‘cos going higher and higher is FUN!…
this is a variation on an earlier shot I took of her (a few weeks back). Neither has come out perfect, so watch this space, I might still attempt version 3, 4 and 5… :D
