Please indulge me for a minute here.
I'm going to participate in the photo series that's all over the internet right now. I think it's such a lovely little project, to take a photo or someone or something special each week of 2013. I'm not one for stickin' to things- I get lazy. But this seemed special to me. This is the year Ralphie will physically change and grow the most. I know I'll love having all these pictures to remember it by, all gathered in one place. So, each week of this year I'll take a picture of my baby boy and post it here. I also like the idea of taking a photo a week of Ryan and me-- I think it would be fun to see how the two of us change over the course of one year. But that all depends on the cooperation of my dear husband and the strength of our rickety tripod.
I don't think I'm going to count these posts as true blog posts though; I'd still like to try to blog 3x a week about other things. But I'm not going to make any promises here, because like I said, I get lazy.
So anyway, here's week one: a portrait of my Ralphie, fresh from a nap and a diaper change. Isn't he fantastic? He loves those fat, floating whales SO MUCH.
And now here are some bonus photos, because I finally had a chance to get my real camera out, which doesn't happen nearly enough. Also, Ralph has some grandmas who are serious about seeing his mug as much as they can. Have at it, grandmas!
