adventures in babysitting

It was a mid-summer's eve when Aunt Rian and Aunt Becki embarked upon their debut babysitting opportunity for one Samuel Vagabond Hedgpeth. He is a sweet-tempered kiddo, and was quite resilient to the incessant flashing of the camera in his cute little slightly more blind eyes.

I'd like to preface these photographs by saying that I'm not a huge fan of the "camera flash" in general, as the lighting generally doesn't look so great. However, given that it was evening time, I should have used it on all the pictures. Not just some. As a means of making this look "intentional," I have edited some of the photos to look "artistic." Enjoy, appreciators of "art" in quotes...ENJOY!

Aunt Rian and Aunt Becki ready to give Samuel the night of his life! *disregard the strange appearance of my elbow*


Pretty Aunt Rian.


I stayed this close to him the entire night to make sure that he was still breathing.


So did Aunt Rian.


Sleepy Pointisammilism.


Sir Sammy Uncertain.


Sweet Sammy.


Sammy after sipping a little too much "formula."


Smiley Sammy.


Samuel just LOVES that joke every time I tell it! Right after this picture, he said his first words, "Oh, you!"


My heart melts.


Can't wait until we do it again.
