Creepy babies and the budding photographer...

Sunday, November 23, 2008

Yes, I already have over 600 pics since Timothy was born...but first things first...I need to get something done that I started thinking about a few weeks ago:

Way back in October Candid Carrie had me laughing out loud with this post. So a few weeks later when I opened my bedroom linen closet to the view below...I knew I need to jump in and write about the creepiness at my house.

Katie LOVES her babies...that extends to dolls, stuffed animals, teddy bears, doll house dolls - she doesn't discriminate. Over the last few months, her love of her babies and probably also thanks a bit to her OCD tendencies - she began moving her babies from room to room lining them up - setting them up throughout the house. At times, it has seemed like it was premeditated so that at bedtime she would be able to stall and had to go collect every one of her babies from throughout the house before she would be able to go to sleep.

When I finally got my new walk-in closet cleaned out, she took it upon herself to move in some empty rubbermaid containers and create a mass cradle for her babies. (Nevermind that she does have actual babydoll cradles/cribs...the rubbermaid container just seems more appropriate to her.)

Yes, looks a bit like a mass something else to me...but she insists they're we all have to whisper and tiptoe after she dumps them in the bucket. (Ironic how this special care to be quiet doesn't extend to the real life baby in our house.) And for some reason, my bedroom closet has become her favorite place for her babies to nap.

So you may ask - why in the world have I chosen to write about this now when I could be telling you all about my birth story and my new son? Well, Thursday, my mother-in-law came into my bedroom carrying my camera before getting ready to leave the house. She told me that before I was looking all over the house for it she wanted to make sure she gave it to me...she had found it in her bed along with about a dozen of Katie's babies. WELL, Katie has been REALLY into taking pictures herself lately...she is finally getting the hang of the fact that what she sees in the LCD display will be what the picture will look like and she's getting better and better...she even likes to comment to herself after she snaps away like "Oh, that's a GOOD one!!"...hmmm, hanging around mommy too much? So, after getting the camera back I expected some funny pics and even though I knew what to expect...I still almost peed myself looking at these pictures...I hope you enjoy them too:
