Photos by Micah

We were going on a walk around the block. I had convinced Micah to walk rather than ride his bike, just so the three of us could stroll together. Not 30 steps from our place however, it became pretty clear to me that Moxie was going to take her TIME (in the way that only two year olds can) and that was going to be pretty frustrating for Micah, 4 years old, on fire to race as he is.


So I gave him the iPhone and said, hey – have some fun taking pictures!


He was thrilled. This was the walk:

the last two I took

I just love looking at the world from his perspective. My own mighty belly included.

  • Ian loves to run around the house and neighborhood with my old point and shoot.  I love to look at the pictures he has taken.  The world from a 5 year old's perspective is quite interesting.  Loving Moxie's boots!

  • These pics are SO cool, and OMG, Meriah, YOU'RE in the pictures!!!!!  Awesome, beautiful lady with big tummy!!!!!

    I'm completely fascinated by the photos taken by children.  Totally, completely fascinated.  I am so proud of Samantha for being able to take some pretty interesting shots with my phone, and will likely be doing a similar post sometime soon.  Great job, Micah!!!

  • OMG, I just love Moxie's boots! She's so adorable and so is Micah. Please tell him I'm very impressed with his pics! xoxo

I'm opinionated, friendly & chatty... I hope you are, too
