One of my favorite parts of keeping this online record is that I'm forced to sort through the sea of pictures on a regular basis. I wish I would have started this sooner because Little Smith's first year is overwhelming... so many photos and I just can't even begin to tackle them all and select my favorite smiles and frowns. Can you imagine what it will be like for this generation of kids to look back on their childhoods? My father was a photographer so I probably have more photos than most and still it's only a few small albums. We easily already have more pictures of Little Smith than exist of my entire youth... amazing.
I'm making a stab at organizing some of our photos and found these favorites from peach picking last summer. Big Smith was the photographer this day so I can't claim any credit, except that I had something to do with that adorable baby face slobbering all over the peach. I am trying very hard to reflect on the cuteness without sighing about how fast he is growing up... trying!
Little Smith had never eaten an actual peach (late teeth) and he's obsessed with all things ball shaped so when he realized that this was a sweet tasting ball all bets were off. Obsessed doesn't even describe his attachment to that peach, it was hilarious.
We picked a whole bunch of peaches and made pies and scones and even a couple of jars of preserves. None of those efforts made it into pictures but I bet if I'd had a blog at the time I'd have documented it... so happy to have this incentive to record all the fun this summer. Now if only it would warm up just a little!
