Day One of the new blog project. This morning was Nicki’s birthday so I got diaper duty. Normally, I would’ve gone in, picked up the boy, changed his nappie and brought him to be with Mom for the morning feed. But today was different. This blog made it different. When I looked down at Sparky as he was waiting for me, Kate hanging around, I noticed how amazing the soft morning light diffused through the curtains looked on his face. I raced downstairs, grabbed the camera (on the ready on the dining room table), and started going to work. The camera was ever present today including this photograph which was made down at San Clemente pier were we went for lunch. This detail is my favorite little girl — Kate — a bit grumpy because she’s hungry and bit tired and wants to play sand castles.
