I just wanted to share my new favorite photo of Matthew.

As you probably know, Matthew is our most energetic, most animated, on-the-go kid and he is usually pulling the huge “cheese” grin from ear to ear when I try to take his photo. So, I just love it when I actually get a shot like this of him – relaxing for just a second, taking a breather and killing me with those amazing eyes of his.

This one has already been printed and is going in a frame tomorrow! I love this little guy!!

Oh, and if you can tell that he has no hair, (I cropped most of it out) it is because he took the liberty of getting the clippers out and buzzing his own hair the other night when we thought he was asleep in his bed!! I do have photos of that to share but just haven’t resized them yet. Check back for more on that one! lol!!

And, I also wanted to say a huge thanks to all of you for your sweet comments about my house and the mirrors! It is so fun to share things like that with all of you and you all really make my day when I get your comments!!!!!!! Thanks!!

    He does have incredible eyes – what a great photo. Oh, and I think it’s part of the “kid law” that every kid has to cut their own hair…at least once, lol!

    that’s an amazing photo! love the eyes! luckily my girls have never tried cutting their own hair … the closest they’ve come it doing some very tight cropping of their hair in pictures that are laying around! lol!

    he is soo cute.
    i’ve been meaning to answer your ? about good images of’s what i learned:
    noonday sun, take it outside or in a super bright window. lay it flat on the ground and stand right above it. make sure there’s no glare or shadow on it. keep the camera at about shoulder height and zoom in. make sure you have the camera pointing straight down, not slightly tilted. take a bunch of pics and then edit the pics to crop and sharpen the layout. it works so good. you really see the dimension and detail. hope it helps!
    and thanks for your comments on my bloggie. you are cute.
    how the heck do you get that perfect curl/wave in your hair in your picture? or is it natural (sickening).

    OHHHH! You captured him perfectly! Absolutely frame worthy. :o) I’d love to see his hair fiasko…having 5 boys I’ve delt with that before. In fact one time we came home from a date and one of my sons had shaved all of his brothers hair and a couple of friends too. If that wasn’t bad enough, it was picture day at school 3 days later. AHHH…Boys are so fun!
