I always feel the need to capture my son's special moments in life. I want him to be able to look back and see a clear timeline of his life. To know that he meant the world to me as a kiddo, and even more as an adult. Love only gets stronger as you grow together through more events....right?!
As a mom, especially a single mom, I find myself being left out of the majority of his photos. I am the only one there to work the camera. So many great photo opps and I am not in any of them. But I know many couples...and very few have a daddy who will stick to that camera to insure the perfect moment is captured. So I dont feel alone....but I do cherish the times that someone else is camera happy and can take a picture of me and my boy.
We were at a pool party for the church youth. Lil'Man and I had taken a break from swimming to eat. A friend of mine from high school had her camera ready to shoot....and snapped a good photo for me. Thank you Noel!!!!

My friend and I took our kiddos to the Olympic Pool. They are only a couple of months. My friends daughter spent most of her time hanging out, relaxing next to her mother. My son spent almost all of his time running around, in and out of the pool. He was borrowing toys from other kids and tossing them over the side. He would say "oops!" and then jump over the side to retreive the toy. He is so smart.
Even though I had to run around instead of relaxing with my friend, I still had a great time. I love to see my lil'man enjoy himself. And of course, sense I am taking all the photos, I am not in any of them. Oh well...such is life as a mommy!

Well this time, Nuni's nephew was with him for the week (his mom was working on moving their family to Austin), so he got to go with us to the park. We had so much fun taking photos while Nuni played. Des had never used a digital camera before and was so amazed at how it worked. He took alot of his Nuni, I took several of him, and then we got alittle creative.
