These are the pictures that almost didn’t happen, seeing as how Wes is barely 4 months anymore! But I didn’t want to look back and regret not having something commemorating that month of his life. And technically, he’s not 5 months yet, is he?
I think I’ll be pushing the 5 month photo shoot by a couple of weeks, and then trying to get back on track somehow, so that there’s some room for comparison between the monthly photographs.
Sadly, there isn’t much to show for the endeavor, for about a million reasons. I think Wes smiled, oh, maybe twice the whole time? And those pictures are either too dark or out of focus. Mainly I just got a lot of this:
And I’m getting really bored with all my photos: I must apologize for how monotonous they must seem. We don’t have many interesting backgrounds (or the ones we have we’ve already abused). And I’ve run out of ideas/new perspectives. For one there just isn’t too much room to play with in the bedroom where I take the shots (because it has the best natural light). I’m hoping once Wes can sit up unassisted, we’ll get more interesting shots.
I wish we’d found one solid spot where we could have taken the same photograph month after month, like Nicole Balch of Pink Loves Brown did. Of course, I don’t have anything as lovely as her Eames rocker or a home nearly as charming.
Next month, I am determined to 1. use Craig as a baby wrangler to get at least one decent smiley photograph of my son, 2. take Wes outdoors for a change of venue and 3. be absolutely sure to get a full body shot: otherwise we completely miss out on the point of seeing his growth!
Nevertheless, serious face or pouty face, my Wesito still looks delicious, no? I especially love how now that his hair has gotten longer, it looks all fluffy — like a little chick’s — at the very tippy top of his head!
