New exercise program

I have a new exercise program. It's not working for my figure, but it sure does get my heart rate up and sweat forming on my brow! You have no idea how hard it is to get a decent picture of Gavin! I probably spent half an hour getting the pictures above. None of them turned out that great, but you should have seen the ones that I deleted(about 25 of them!) I am so thankful for digital cameras! If we had Gavin before digital cameras, we would never have gotten a good picture or we would have gone broke in the process!

He doesn't crawl or walk, so it's not like he can get away! Yet, he's ALWAYS moving! He rarely looks at the camera. He's always turning his head. He doesn't sit up, so I prop him up, but he wiggles around so much and ends up falling over or slipping down! He's a tough one to get to smile and when he does smile he's usually 'talking' and making his happy sounds, so his mouth is wide open! Ugh! I'm stubborn though, and I don't quit until I get at least one decent picture! This is where the exercise comes in. I am seriously sweating by the end of our photo shoots! This is why Gavin has had so few professional pictures taken. Which reminds me, I need to do this soon! Say some prayers for me and the photographer please! And, if you ever want some good exercise, come over and see how well you can do! :)

"But reject profane and old wives' fables, and exercise yourself toward godliness. For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come." 1 Timothy 4:7&8

He is such a doll!! Great pics....wish you were closer as I am sure him and Peter would have a great time and we'd both be able to get photos of big smiles!

oh Alicia, you are doing a wonderful job and I am so proud of you! Keep it up, that determination is what gets the best shots.. I too take about 30-50 of Abbs just to get that perfect shot. They are a hard shoot because they move so fast, but keep shooting away! It pays off with photos and a little exercise too! GOTTA LOVE IT! Smiles to you my friend!
