Baby: Baby E’s First Fourth Of July
Not Our Typical Fourth of July
We would have thought that we would be spending time in the country between Mississippi and Louisiana for the Fourth of July weekend, but that was not the case this year.
It seems like the year of firsts for Baby E has been challenged with the COVID-19 virus spreading throughout the country. Not to mention Florida is really going through it with all the NEW cases of the virus. As much as I would have liked to take her to the beach or home to spend time with family, we are here.
One thing about me is I love to capture the first moments of my kids, no matter what is going on. M asked me why I wanted and needed to take so many pictures of them. I had to explain to her that these pictures will serve as reminders of the memories we made together. She didn’t quite understand until I asked her if she liked looking back at the pictures when she was a baby. Her face lit up and she said, “Yes, I love looking at my pictures but I don’t remember being a baby.” That’s when I explained to her why taking pictures is so important.
For those of you who are reading and don’t know me that well (yet), I love photography. If I were to go back to school to do it all over again, I would include learning how to be a photographer to the mix of other things that I am passionate about. There is something about capturing timeless moments that I absolutely love.
This year, I will invest in learning more about taking and editing my own photos; mainly because I can save a ton of money by not hiring a professional photographer every time I need photos, but also because I love the creativity that comes along with it.
Enough about that though – you are here to see pictures of Baby E on her first July 4th. Since we didn’t travel home for the 4th of July this year, we took to the back patio and captured some sweet moments. To be honest, I had to bribe M and C with Robux money in order for them to stay focused and cooperate.
Hey … you do what you have to do. I love these pictures so much.
After a while Baby E was over my shenanigans and was ready for her nap. I hope you enjoy the pictures!
What did you do for the 4th of July? Let me know in the comments below!
