strollers and photos
Saturday, Jul. 22, 2006 - 11:43 a.m.
There’s not too terribly much going on around here these days aside from baby-related activities. The weather has finally been cooler than 95 degrees with 100% humidity so we’ve actually been able to take Max outta the house for walks, shopping trips, and visits. When we’re out and about it’s still easiest to snap his infant car seat (which, sadly, we’re almost done with) into the frame-only stroller, but when we go for walks from home he totally rides in style. Max is the proud owner of what I like to call “The Hummer of strollers” - a Bugaboo Cameleon.
This thing is so fucking awesome that I can’t even tell you - it’s the smoothest ride ever and I swear to you I could run over other peoples’ children and not even notice so it really is like Hummer or other large SUV :-P Two days ago I thought I’d try going “off road” for the first time and I flew straight up a steep grass covered hill as though I were on brand new ultra-level blacktop - GENIOUS!
In other news, I took Max’s 6-month photos the other day. I couldn’t stomach the thought of going to JC Penny, Sears, Target, etc. because I know the “photographers” are just random people hired off the street and given that title. I also hate how EVERY baby has the same photos - same poses, same props, same backgrounds :YAWN: I did contemplate taking him to a real photography studio but, for now at least, it’s still too hard to plan ahead as to when his most awake and most happy times of day will be so I couldn’t justify the expense. I guess what “they” say is true, if you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself...so I did. I took about 100 photos and ended up with 12-14 really nice ones and another 30 or so really good ones. I’m still in the process of fixing things up in Photoshop, but I’ll post a couple of samples here just for fun...enjoy...
And a drooly one just for fun :-)
