Through the eyes of a child

Before I write the rest of this post, I wanted to tell you that Drew and I visited Ari today at the hospital and she is doing so much better! She was able to run around without her IV pole for a few hours today and the kids spent some time in the playroom together. The doctors are even saying that she might be discharged this week! Praise God!


So, the other day Ava was taking a nap (or so I thought) and I took the opportunity to check my email. While I was on the computer Drew picked up my camera and took a picture of me. I showed him what it looked like and he wanted to take another one. So I let him play with the camera, knowing I could delete whatever pictures he took. I was surprised at how much he enjoyed it! He was walking around the house taking pictures of all sorts of things! Here is an example of how he sees the world around him:

mom

dad working in his office

Ava's room where she is...

not sleeping!

Not a bloody glove, but Dan's golf glove

Drew's toes

the empty laundry basket

a balloon

the TV

one discarded sock (and the cute toes it used to cover)

Drew's shoes

the light, way up high

a family photo

and one of his dinosaurs!

And that is only a small sample of the pictures he took! I guess maybe I should get him one of those kids digital cameras for Christmas...

Too cute!! I love the pictures that have his toes. The camera is a great idea because then you don't have to worry about yours when it gets dropped in the toilet or something. Tommy loves his

This made me laugh out loud- especially Ava . . . not sleeping. Drew is quite the photographer- Jacob's all come out with no heads.

Wow, what a talented grandson I have! I love the way Ava smiled for him but she won't smile (or even look) when we have a camera pointed at her. Its actually a great picture, isn't it? Maybe Drew's taking after cousin Adam?

Love, Mom

Looks like Drew has a hobby, and some talent, too! I see some creativity in those pics. I love how we see Ava's door and then a very awake Ava! Sooo cute! xoxox

You have a photographer on your hands. Very abstract! Aren't you glad he didn't take any of the toy room? Do you delete those? I would have. :)

Ava Danielle... Go to sleep! Crazy girl.
