My Baby Finds My Rocking Chair

My daughter is now old enough to crawl into the rocking chair that I had when I was a little girl. (If you weren’t sure it was mine, I added stickers. LOTS OF THEM. And after a month of attempts, my mother just had to let it go. And for a clean-freak like her, that could NOT have been easy.) N is unbelievably proud of herself (and in a ROCKING CHAIR) so she couldn’t keep still. But I adore the pictures anyway.

PhotoStory Friday

Photo Story Friday is something I’ve never tried before, but I saw it last week on Life With Kaishon. The post I wrote is perfect so WHAT THE HECK. I’m giving it a whirl!

She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. I LOVE the action in these shots!! It totally captures how obviously thrilled she is at finding such a treasure. If she was sitting quietly it just wouldn't be the same. 🙂

    SO glad you are participating in PSF this week. I hope you come back again!

  2. Hmm…not sure if my previous post went through. But, I like the mood of the pictures. They have an emotional impact and don't have to be “perfect” so thanks for sharing.

  3. She is like the cutest little thing ever. This was so sweet : ) I had a rocking chair just like that. What a lovely post!

  4. Thanks! I keep getting frustrated at first but they came together nicely. AND I learned how to post them as a gallery which worked really well for the set! PSF is bringing out some extra creativity in me 🙂

  5. Thank you so much. I glad the emotions came through… I am not a great photographer, but I thought as a series, the pictures did well together.
    And my kids are not kids that stop moving very often so I need to get used to blurry pictures!

  6. Thank you so much! It really pulled my heartstrings when she climbed into the chair. To think of her so big and at the same time to think of me so little.

  7. Your kids are adorable! (I'm referring to your other posts too.) You really bring them to life with the quotes/dialogues and pics. And the photos look totally professional! It's great that there is a piece of mom-as-a-little-girl in there too 🙂

    (and thanks for the Friday photo idea – I borrowed it!!)

  8. Yay!! I just check out your post. It was great!
    And thanks for the complements — on my kids and on my photography! Both of which may be more luck than anything else. But the writing I would like to take credit for 😉

  9. That is so precious! I remember when my daughter finally got big enough to crawl into my childhood rocking chair. Sweet moments.
