Probably being a second child plays a part

I don't take as many pictures of Will as I did of Kalena when she was this age. I'm sure that being a second child has something to do with that. Not that I'm any less fascinated by all the little things this time around, but having a toddler around means time that I might spend taking pictures now has to be spent making sure Kalena isn't dumping the bucket of oatmeal in the pantry, or fishing random stuff out of her mouth, or taking crayons away before something other than paper gets colored on. The other big difference I've noticed is that Will is a winter baby. In Colorado that means he spends like 90% of his time bundled in blankets. Kalena, being born during the Texas summer, spent most of her time in adorable onesies. It's a lot more fun to take pictures of a different onesie every day than to take pictures of a little face (cute as it is) sticking out of the same blankets all the time.

So I'm trying to make sure I take pictures when he isn't bundled. Because I know you guys don't want to miss out on this.

I put this picture in to show his eyes. I don't know how well you can see them, but they are deep blue and they've been that color since he was born. I know newborn eyes are usually a gray color but his were seriously blue right from the get go.


  1. Sooooo cute!! The second kid also gets to get away with a lot more. Like eating Dum-Dums before she turns 2 and running with scissors. (And Allison's eyes were blue from the beginning. Jordan's eyes didn't have a describable color until she was over a year old).

  2. I agree with Amy! Libby gets away with sooooo much more. But she's also more easy going.

  3. I agree about taking pictures swaddled. That's like, all Amelia's newborn month folder is of. He's a doll.

  4. With the shiny pants, he looks ready for gymnastics! With yours and Brian's height combo, maybe it's his destiny... Best gymnast ever!
