Proud mama...

I have been missing Henry since he's at school all day now, so in the evening we have been taking "picture walks" together. He takes the camera, strap around his neck (and me holding the strap-that camera ain't chap, lol) and we walk around the block. He takes pictures of whatever interests him. Then we come home and look at them together. I have loooooved this time with him, especially since bedtime has been a nightmare for us lately. I am so excited that he is excited about photography, and documenting the world around him. He is such a cool kid. And here are some of his photographs:

Rockin' mama

big red rocker

the gigantic tree in the front yard

fire hydrant

Tommy's prayer flags

the sky

rainy bike seat

door knobs



And here he is showing me his hand boo boo:



And his knee boo boos (check out those awesome undies from Sublime Threads-Sonya rocks!):



I finally told him he had to wear sneakers to school because I think the Crocs have been tripping him up when he runs. He's fallen 3 times on the black top this week! Not usual for him. We'll see if he made it through today without wiping out again.

Speaking of which, I shoudl get some work done before he gets home...

Those are great pictures - seems he has an eye for it! What a fun thing for you both to do together during the evenings.

Those are great pics. What a fun idea...I may have to get Ethan a camera for Christmas. (He is only three so there is NO WAY he is using my Digital Rebel!)

Are those the same undies you were selling? If so, they are the BEST!!! Ethan LOVES his monster undies so much.

Thanks for sharing!

I'm glad he likes them! They are the same style, but not the same design. Sonya knows how much Henry loves them so she sent some crazy stripes for him with the last package of undies I ordered. She is such an awesome mama. The center panel is aliens! They are one of his favorite pairs.

Wow! Those are nice pictures. What a great idea! It's nice with digital pics you can just erase the ones you don't like and start again! You go Henry! Another artist in the family!

Seriously, those are wicked cool pictures your lil man took! Wow! Just. Wow! What a sweet idea. Oh, and Jackson's luvin the Cranky undies (do they have an *official* name?) too. He always goes for those ones before we run out and need to do wash. He even "shared" with little brother the other day when I was out and didn't have a change of clothes for the little man. Big brother stepped up and shared! They fit awesome too!

I'm thinkin you might have a little photographer on your hands. It's refreshing to see things through a childs eye. WTG Henry!
