Photo of the Week - B&W Baby

I know I've mentioned in the past that there's an online community similar to Facebook for knitters and crocheters called Ravelryand that it's a site I visit... way too much, probably. One of the great things about Ravelry is that users can join groups pertaining to specific interests - dachshund lovers or Harry Potter fans or people who really like knitting with purplr alpaca yarn. Understandably, the membership is primarily female, so it stands to reason that there would be groups for mothers - especially new mothers. There is a group for mothers of babies born in October 2010, of which I am, of course, a member.

The group started back in March of last year, about the time most of us found out we were expecting, and is still going strong. After almost a year of chatting with these women from all over the world, I feel like some of them - the core group that has been consistently active - are my online friends, and I've even had coffee with one of them who lives nearby.

All of this is just backstory/explanation for what I hope to be able to do for at least a little while here. A number of us have access to nice cameras and are interested in improving our skills, and now we have the perfect subjects - always cute, always changing, and always in great demand. Some of the women have challenged themselves to take and post a picture of something - often their children - every day. I'm not so crazy as to think that I could commit to something like that. But from that idea came the weekly photo challenge, where each week anyone who wants to can submit a photo matching a theme chosen by the previous week's winner. We all vote for the one that's the cutest or "best" or whatever.

So last week my submission was for the theme "Baby Knits" and you've already seen it:

This week, the theme is black & white photos of our babies and this is my submission, documenting the second nap I've managed to secure in the Pack & Play in a couple weeks. He slept almost an hour and a half, much to my satisfaction and surprise.

I don't know if it will win and I really don't care. I'm just enjoying the "assignments" and wanted to share them with you. I hope to post them as long as I'm able to do them. We'll see how long it lasts. I do, after all, have an infant. :)
