Mommy and Me Monday- Me and The Big (53rd)


It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.

My big and me. 

Right before our mommy and me date to the circus (more on that later).

I was checking out my new lens to see if my arms could get us both in the picture. 

Turns out it can…but just barely.

Hence the extreme close up.

Mommy and Me Monday

I’m thinking I’m getting better with setting the aperture, but obviously, I’m not quite there.

Poor girl is all out of focus and blurry (and she has good skin) and mommy is clear as day, wrinkles and all!

Grab the button and link up.  Make some new friends and visit some old ones, too.

Mommy and Me Monday at  Really, Are You Serious?

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies.  If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link.  It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

Make sure you head over and check out all of the other Mommy and Me Monday posts and leave them some comment love.  It makes me sad to go to posts at the end of the day and only see one comment.  Please spread the love!  And, I never mind the comments, either:)

    Wrinkles and all??? Give me a break… you are beautiful! Just wait until your 66 like me… then you will have something to complain about. I am sending hugs. Grammy L

    1. Trust me, I know! My grandma like to remind me when I complain.

  4. Wrinkles? I still can’t see what you are on about! You are still too young for that. Not sure when I became old enough for that…it snuck up on me!

    That is a lovely photo! Can’t wait for details on the date!

    1. Pretty sure that’s not the case..I’ve got a pretty big birthday coming up in April.

  5. You look great for your close up! Adorable pic!
    Back on track this week for Mommy and Me! Thanks for hosting. 🙂

  6. Love this picture…you two look great in it, wrinkles and all 😉 It’s crazy how, like you said, you are crystal clear & she’s just a bit unfocused! I want a DSLR camera so bad but will need to take classes to learn how to use it when I finally do get one!

    1. Well, thanks!

      And, I know why she’s out of focus and I’m not. I went with a manual aperture setting and didn’t take my number high enough for a bigger depth of field. Totally my fault.

  7. I linked up finally! Been way too long 🙂
    That is a very fun picture, even if the camera made her blurry and highlighted every single thing on your face. But you have amazing skin too! That must be were she gets it.
    Happy Monday!

    1. Well, aren’t you the sweetest.

      And, so glad you joined in again.

      I hope that Lucy is feeling better and healthy now. I had pneumonia as a baby as well and my mom says it was terrifying.

  8. grandma Pat says:

    This picture is so cute. I can’t beliee how many freckles Iz is getting. They are so darn cute.

    1. They both have them. Nat’s getting more and more of them, too.

  9. But you look beautiful! (As always)

    Been a long time since I have been over. Hope you are doing well. Big hugs!

    1. You really all are too sweet. Promise not to be fishing for compliments.

      So glad you linked up again. We missed you.

  10. What kind of lens? Love the lighting on the picture too. Is that all natural light?

  11. Awe! How sweet. Mommy still looks great no matter what. 🙂 That’s where the little princess got her beauty. 🙂

  12. The photo looks awesome to me. You both look gorgeous!
    But yeah…I’ve got to learn how to use the “fancy camera” too.

    1. Well, thank you.

      I wish I had more time (or made more time) to learn even more.

  13. Well, I think its a great picture 🙂
    Cant wait to hear more about the circus!

  14. I love it! Pictures you take yourself are always the best! 🙂

    1. I don’t know if that’s the case with me…but I try.

  15. You are crazy. There aren’t any wrinkles on your gorgeous freckled face!

    1. Well, you are too kind.
