Through the Eyes of a Toddler

For Christmas Aaron and I got the kid some really kick ass toys.  We got him the guitar which he loves, we got him some books that he likes, and the new workbench is not exactly unpopular either.  But the gift, the one that everyone loves, is the camera.

It’s cute.  It’s durable.  It’s got a cool weird pattern on the front.  It has a double view finder as well as the image window.  It has easy buttons to push.  And while this is all very cool, the coolest thing of all is that it is a REAL CAMERA!  Ashton can now take his very own pictures.  And he does.

So far I haven’t found anyone who isn’t completely in love with this silly thing.  We couldn’t get it away from his cousins.  His grandpa wanted to play with it.  There are plenty of shots from Christmas that Ashton didn’t take because he couldn’t get the silly thing back from anyone.  It would just pass from hand to hand taking sub par photos of people’s elbows and feet.

The quality of the photos is not good.  I admit, it looks like a shot taken with a camera phone.  They’re grainy and out of focus, and usually the color is very dull.  But ask Ashton if he cares and I’m sure you’ll get a resounding “MINE’ as he wrestles his new found form of expression out of your critical hands.

So, being the kick ass mom that I undoubtedly am, I have set up my boy with his very own flickr account.  His grainy and random photos of people’s elbows and knees can be found here.

The shots of Ashton playing with other toys or making faces were taken by one of his grandparents, great grandparents, aunts and uncles, and in some cases, his cousins.  Occasionally his parents.

Sorry about the insane Mommy Blog content.  And sorry that I’ve been a whiny pouty bitch lately.  And sorry for doing two posts so close together and possibly giving you false hope and expectations that I might actually update more often than I do.  I assure you, this was just a fluke.

  1. This is just too cute. You have to post a picture of the camera, I want to see what this thing looks like. Ashton is growing up so fast!! I hope you have another soon.

  2. If you click on the word camera in the first paragraph you’ll see a picture and I think a video about it.
