Photos of the Day (Mason 2.5 years)

Posted on

Believe it or not, Mason is turning two and a half in a couple days. As is tradition, ¬†photos were taken from the moment he awoke until he went to bed on the hour. The photos catalog his daily actives, his mood, and little events. It’s unbelievable how much he has changed over the past 6 months. One thing the photos won’t display is how verbal he has gotten in the last few months. What at one time¬†was a couple of words that created a sentence now is detailed stories, opinions, and monologs. Crazy how quick it happens…

This photo of the day is a unique one as Elaine and Caleb are up North in the Bay area visiting Juliana and Jaclyn. I believe that Elaine took a lot of photos today with Caleb so we will get his photos up on the blog here shortly. Enjoy Mason’s day….

I took a video of our dinner conversation this evening too. The video is about 4mins long and starts with a little “NO!” but then we dive into a conversation. It gets a little long but it is classic Mason… enjoy!

We take a lot of photos of the kids…. hundreds every week. Many are of activities, outings, eating food, goofy faces but not many of them are close ups. Another struggle is that both of the kids have been moving and shaking so much that it is hard to get a photo in focus.
Recently I took a couple photos that met my criteria for this blog post: head shots that were in focus, close up, and simple. Hope you enjoy

Autumn fun

Posted on

Before Autumn slips away into Winter I wanted to post some more photos from our trip to the pumpkin patch.

This year we went to Lane Farms in Goleta and got a chance to buy a pumpkin, pet some farm animals, and buy one jar of apple butter and one of pumpkin butter. It was a big first outing for the four of us and really glad that Ken and Ida could join us in the fun.

Trips like this continue to be more fun as Mason grows and develops. He wants to do this, that, and redo it over again. He loved seeing the animals, going on the hay ride, leaping off bails of hay, and picking out his baby pumpkin to take home.

Enjoy the photos! We will also get a Caleb birth post up soon (relatively)

Photos of the Day (10/11/13)

Posted on

This is our third addition of our Photos of the Day project. The idea is pretty simple, we take a photo every hour throughout the day to capture the daily routine and little moments. We’ve been doing the photo project every six months for Mason and we are happy to add Caleb into the mix.

As you’ll see, our day included some home time, a trip to the pumpkin patch, time down in Carpinteria to visit Elaine’s parents, lots of naps for Caleb and a bouncing Mason at bedtime. Our day was a lot of fun and filled with little adventures. We were all pretty tired by the end but look forward to doing the next round in six months.

For whatever reason I can’t seem to get the formatting right on the post. So if you are reading this blog post on your email it may be kind of difficult. I’d suggest you go to our website: http://www.memwatson.wordpress.com for easier reading.

Thanks and enjoy!
