 Hand Family. 
While these aren't hand-hands they are clothes for hands.  In the shape of hands. The black gloves on the left are Bs or "Dad's", mine are the red one's ("Mom's) and of course the ones in the center are Baby's. Can't wait for us to meet the new guy and be a family of three.
I feel it is apparent that J-Man will star in a lot of pictures. I've had to refrain from using him in some other photo ideas already (some of them were ideas for future photo days). He will sit by either one of us when we're at the computer (or anywhere really) and we will both pet him while we are computer-ing or watching tv, reading etc. He was very happy for B to show him some love and I took the oppurtunity to get Bs hand.


 This was my first attempt at the super awesome book for "words". I actually really wish I could have found the quote book or been in my Twins "quote room" for this project. It would be have been closer to what I wanted. I also wanted the Catador to be "reading" this book...he clearly had other ideas.
 This is what I'm considering my actual challenge photo. Extra points to anyone who guesses which book this is. There was no particular significance of this book over most others. It was just the first "good book" I saw on the shelf.
 The other three were taken with my phone, which defeats the reason why I took part in the challenge anyways. But I really loved this "Family". I just had to capture it. It turned out so much better than I imagined it would. It's possible that I should have chosen it for my challenge pic. But again, main purpose, for me, was to practice with the "big camera"
 I couldn't resist. I am a little emotional these days. But I think that's to be expected.
Finally, the last one, again this is more about the words than the image. It was my fortune cookie last night. I think it refers to my son in one way or another. He will have an ocean nursery after all. I'm hoping it means there's a cruise in my near future though! We'll see!

My View Today

This month, I will be doing a photo challenge. Each day I will take a picture, ideally with the "big camera", that fits the theme of the day. I will post the picture I choose, along with any runner ups I happen to capture to my facebook, and on here. I will complete the entire month, but due to the whole giving birth to the guy currently taking up residence in my uterus, I may not do all of them on the day I'm "supposed" too. I can't wait to see how different the pictures are I take are from the ones my friends are taking of the "same" things.

The first one was "My View Today"
Honestly, I barely left the house. And that was really only because Miss Jessica, who is also doing this photo challenge, invited me to the park with her son. Javvy and I were happy to go. I used that oppurtunity to get in my view of the day. The image I came up with was the J-Man digging in a hole.
