There's a trend going around other blogs right now and I am following suit. The idea is to take a picture of your kid once a week - a quality photo that captures who they are in that moment.

I imagine that in Eddy's second year of life, there may be far fewer pictures of him than in his first. No longer do I have our DSLR always at my hip and no longer do I have a stationary subject.

Blog or not, I encourage other mamas to join. I plan on getting all of these pictures printed and adding them to Eddy's shoebox. I think it will fill my heart to flip through them 20 years from now.

Here's the first shot of the year of The Boy. This was just after he had woken up from his nap. I think it so perfectly captures what it looks like around 2 o'clock in this house: messy hair, puffy eyes, happiness.

Happy snapping.
