Four seconds

Eleanor is funny around cameras. She starts off really shy, wondering why dad’s face has disappeared behind the black clicking box, but if you give her a minute — or a couple of seconds — she will be absolutely adorable. She was hanging out in the pantry the other day when I started snapping pictures. She went from frowning at the camera to being a cute little ham in a matter of four seconds. Seriously, check the metadata of the photos in the sequence to see how quick she turned the frown upside down!

Dad, why are you taking pictures?
Dad, why are you taking pictures?
Seriously, do you have to take pictures?
Seriously, do you have to take pictures? Well, if you have to…
Ok, Now I'm smiling!
Ok, Now I’m smiling!

It’s a zoo!

Grandma G took us to the zoo last Saturday for a fun day out. You can see that Eleanor had a good time and so did her parents 🙂 we got to see the polar bears playing with their ball and the baby river otter “Ziggy” swimming. Of course we also got to see Lily again and see how much our baby elephant has grown!!











Snow days

The last few days have been amazing. Mom came home halfway through Thursday to work from home once the snow really started sticking and has been there ever since. She had few meetings on Friday so it was a fun mommy daughter day. Except Eleanor decided to take 5 hours worth of naps and then go to bed at 5pm. She didn’t wake up until Saturday at 730 so I guess she needed her sleep! Other than her naps, the day was full of crawling and cruising and laughter. Eleanor even forgot at one point that she can’t walk yet. She started off cruising around the coffee table, then got excited about the dog across the room. Got about a step away from the table and realized she was walking away. Her eyes got so huge and she crashed straight onto her cloth diaper bum. So funny! But we’ve been having a fun time with her in the snow. She loves it.
