If you were going to hang it in your great room, would you choose color or black and white?


isabella, january 07, in daddy's hands


Wish us luck. We are headed out...just the two of us...to do some shopping while Tommy is at work. Who knew it would be such a process to go shopping? I used to just quick get ready...grab my purse, and go. That is not the case these days. I have to pack a crazy amount of "supplies." I almost always forget something of great importance. I seriously throw my back out trying to get the stroller in and out of the back of the truck. The mirror we bought so that we can check on her from the front seat is absolutely useless...so I practically climb in the back at every red light to make sure she is fine. I use 30+ anti-bacterial wipes to ward of all those germs that lurk on every surface, handle, etc. All in all, not a whole lot of shopping gets accomplished!
Also, I am taking her to school to meet my class. I think I will have to implement a "no touch the baby" rule for my own sanity!
ETA: Hurry on over to www.designmom.com and scroll down a few posts. She is giving away 5 Lands End Diaper bags (I think you could use them as a regular bag, too.) and all you have to do is leave a comment on the post...any comment at all! If you win one, I will need you to send it to me since I told you about it! haha

I love both pictures...they're beautiful. I'm a sucker for black and white pictures, though.
I'm sure your kids went crazy over seeing you and Isabella today.

I was going to say the black and white because the subject always seems more beautiful. But, I love the color one. I think that you can tell that its tommy's hands better in the color one.

Both lovely. I think it depends on your room. The color one has more warmth, I think. And, I also like how you can tell that is Tommy's hand in the color one. Don't know why that struck me when I saw it, but it did. I guess I love Dads and their babies? :) How did the outing go? Does it takes like 9 hours to get out of/into the car? I need some stroller advice when you get the hang of it. Which do you have and do you like it? Email me, momma!

Now that is a TOUGH decision. They are both so sweet. I think the black and whites are always great on the walls.

Usually I love b&w but when it's your kid it just seems like you get so much closer to life with the color. I'd go w/ the color.

I had the same problem with one of the pictures you took of Abby Kate. I just got them printed in both color and B&W in a poster size, then hung each one to see which I liked better. The color won. It just shows so much more detail of her tiny baby-ness... just like the color one here. Great picture!

The outings will get easier with practice. And don't be too sad about missing moments with the camcorder. There are way too many. You won't miss them all, I promise!
