I realized last night after I finally got the boys down to sleep that I hadn’t done any photos of them yesterday. Grr! I almost went in and turned a low lamp on to do some long exposures while they slept, but I thought better of it. Yesterday was a long day. I spent an hour and a half on the phone with Clear tech support, and another 45 minutes doing various system reconfigurations, which made not one lick of difference. However, this evening, miraculously, I was able to upload photos again. I’m sure it will go down again shortly, as I’m pretty sure at this point that they’ve set some ridiculously low transfer amount and are capping me for using too much upload bandwidth (which is stoooooopid, as I’m not actually uploading all that much, so if they are capping me, it’s got a seriously low threshold).
ANYHOW. I didn’t feel like risking waking the boys in order to get a photo of them, so it looks like as of Feb 7th, my picture-a-day-for-a-month goal has failed. Oh, well. I continue on anyway, as I’m really doing this in order to watch them change over the course of a month, and to share photos more often and to get better at shooting the boys as my subject. I’ve never been a great people picture-taker, so I’m really trying hard to get better, at least for the sake of capturing their young lives.
Jack is hard to photograph because he never sits still, and he’s fascinated with the camera (ooh, the damage he could do to my camera…). So I have to sneak-attack to get pictures of him. Love his cheeks here.
We get great light in our front room, so I tried to get some photos in there today. This was their nursery, and hopefully will be their room again some day, but for now, it’s also serving as a guest room (thus the full-size bed).
And so, that catches us up, once again. Here’s hoping that this is the last catch-up I have to do and that we can get back in to some sort of routine again soon, now that there’s no travel or guests on the horizon for at least a month (and that my internet connection starts cooperating. Ugh.). Whew.
