Noah the Photographer

Do you ever wonder how a 4-yr-old views the world?  Noah has been using the camera on my phone for a while now, but this was the first time he got to play with the snap-n-shoot.  I wasn’t following him around the house, so it was quite interesting to later look through his photo tour.  No cropping or editing from mom, these are his own composition…

The closest thing at hand to practice clicking the shutter button, Joshua’s head:

Maybe I should get Mia and giraffy in the photo too:
 

Oh, if I back up far enough I can get everyone in the frame!

My favorite chair (yes, I fight Mia for the polka-dotted one.  Since I’m the big brother, sometimes I can convince her to sit in the blue checkered one.  She’s catching on though…)
 

Mia’s favorite toy drum:

Beloved Toad, fast asleep:

Four Months

If 3 was the hand-eating month, let 4 go on record as the month for ear-to-ear grins. Such fun!! To me, they’re looking more and more alike every day. If it weren’t for Joshua’s few leftover long locks (that never fell out), I’d really have to stop and think hard about who’s who.
The little guys had their 4-month well visit this morning. Jacob has caught up with Joshua on length (25″, 50th percentile) and head size (17″, 72nd percentile) and is gaining ground on their weight difference. Joshua is 17lbs 5oz (88%) and Jacob is 16lbs 4 oz (75%). Both handled their shots like the little troopers that they are, and now mommy is enjoying a rare day at home with two babies. Think I can get them both down at the same time and sneak in a nap? I’m not going to hold my breath… The sleeping one just yelled out. Time to go!
