My sweetie, Baby E, is almost 1 year old!  I can’t believe it!  Sometimes I still can’t believe that I’m a mother of 3!

Things are a little tight around here.  Isn’t it like that almost everywhere?  I wanted to hire a photographer to get some really cool photos of Baby E for his 1st birthday, but sometimes you’ve gotta just be creative.  So, I changed my thinking.  I asked a friend, who also has a toddler, if she would like to get some photos out in the leaves with our little guys.  Yes!  It was a play date of sorts.

Here are some of my photos of Baby E on our outing at a local nature trail.

He certainly did not know what to think of those leaves.  It took some time before he warmed up to them – even longer before he would actually “touch” a leaf.

Yeah, in the photo above – I think he was done.  It looks like an angry face, huh?

I know I’m biased but he’s just so cute.  If you’re looking for my You Capture entry for this week, you won’t find it.  I’m a slacker.  Even the quickie shots I got of the kids before trick-or-treating were unworthy.  I’ll try to join in on next week’s challenge – Serene.
