Happy Camper Tee

I knew it was bound to happen soon, but y'all I'm starting to get really, really tired. I do okay for most of the day but by about 7 or 8PM I am just done. We went to the Mavs game on Tuesday night and didn't get home until 11:30; Wednesday was a really long day.

I used to be so good about going to bed at 10:30 every night. That was back when Andrew went to sleep at a decent hour. He goes to bed so late these days that I consider it a victory if he's asleep by 9:00.

And that doesn't leave me much me time and I know you know how important that is. So, I end up staying up 'till midnight and then vowing to go to bed earlier the next night. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Anyway, I really wanted to show y'all these cute Andrew pictures.

I love his new green shirt. It's a great color on him and it's just so cute.

It's from Honey Bee Tees, the little shop started by one of my favorite bloggers, Darby, at Fly Through Our Window. If you don't read her blog I'd highly recommend it. She always has great recipes and crafts to share and lots of pictures of her darling kids.

I also ordered the tractor shirt. Andrew's really excited about that one.

These photos give me a great opportunity to point out the importance of a big aperture (low number) and shallow depth of field in your pictures.

Andrew was standing in my unbelievably messy kitchen this evening when I took these using my speedlite. I used my 50mm f/1.4 at f/2.8 and was only about 2 feet from my subject. The perfect recipe for making those dirty dishes and kitchen towels fade into the background.

Now if only I could make those things disappear in real life. :)

  • CUTE shirt!! My son stays up till 9:00 most every night. If I put him to bed any earlier, he wakes up before 6:00...and I just can't have that. LOL Maybe you'll get a schedule figured out soon that will work for all of you! "Me Time" is crucial! Love that shirt!
