The new mini-digi cam.




Bella has been using her little camera all day long. She is loving it and I thought I would just share some of the pictures from her last day of being five. She snapped the photo of the sunshine through the window right away this morning and I just think it is a cool shot. She wanted to 'capture the sunbeams' and you know what? She did it!
She's taken several pictures of Spongebob and Patrick and Squidward from off the tv, a few of her favorite toys, lots of the girls- but Brock has not been too cooperative. They will be headed to a Whitecaps baseball game in just a few minutes and he has been 'ordered' to let her take a few pictures of their fun together. (Update: Bella accidentally deleted all her pictures at the game. I guess she was a little over-zealous with the buttons on her camera. Fortunately she wasn't upset. She's just 'learning'.)
Here's a link to picture she took of her baby brother-to-be growing bigger at 30 weeks, 6 days. I have a hunch he will get used to a camera living in this household in just a matter of days after his arrival. Such is life in the Ferlaak household. The lens is just a part of our everyday lives. =)

the lens is part of our lives too. It goes everywhere :) I love the pictures through Belle's eyes! What type of camera did you get her? We have the fisherprice one and the quality just isn't that great. The quality of those are so much better!

Hi Jody, I've been away for a week and have just read through your latest posts. It gave me a lump in my throat - you SO deserve the wonderful friends and family that you have. I truly believe that happiness breeds happiness - you provide so much happiness to others, it is bound to come right back at you!

Love,

Jane

She takes better pictures than I do!!

I have been a Nitty.Gritty reader for a long time now, just not a big commenter. It's funny how I often see your comments on other blogs I read.....our roads cross in cyberspace even though we've never met!

Just thought I'd stop being a lurker and comment on how much I enjoy reading what you have to say!
