{where has my baby gone???}

I was looking through some old photos the other day, came across these, and fell in love.  This was literally about a week or so after I got my DSLR (all taken with my kit lens).  I knew *nothing* about photography at this point and Kaydence was only 5 months old.  I have never posted these anywhere because it was literally just me "practicing" in manual mode.

I don't care about any of the technical stuff in these photos because all I see is my baby being a baby.  At the time, these were just "throw away" shots to me, but now I adore them so much that it hurts a little.  So a little word of advice, sometimes it pays to keep the throw aways...I'm so glad I never deleted them!  And the miraculous thing is that these somehow escaped my epic hard drive crash of 2010, so I will treasure these forever and always.

Where, oh where has my baby gone???  ::weep::
