It started just as we were finishing breakfast and Nathan started playing with those Mardi Gras beads he had gotten at school a few days earlier. As he was playing with them I snapped a few pictures thinking...why couldn't you do this on the actual day of Mardi Gras....but never mind that. He was very cute...swinging the beads in large circles....putting them on his head...creating sculpturesque art with them. As I snapped away I already figured I'd have a hard time choosing the official picture of the day.
Enter collage #1:
THEN, we ventured upstairs where Nathan continued to be totally adorable.
After a little while, he started jumping off the chest in our bedroom..which he's often apt to do. I grabbed the camera and tried to get a photo of him mid-air.
THEN Daddy decided to get in on the action and madness ensued. We had silliness galore!
Official Photo of the Day:
|See that little hint of pink in the mirror behind Nathan? That's me. :)|
Nathan continued to jump and jump and jump each time insisting that Mommy take a picture so he could see. Now I REALLY didn't know which picture I'd choose. So I say...why choose? Can't we just have it all? The beauty of the day was...all of it. I can't favor one thing over another. It was a wonderfully enjoyable morning.
