A new Foto Friday hostess and Momma in Focus

For those of you not in the know, Ann Marie, aka the Household 6 Diva, has decided to no longer host the popular Foto Friday feature on her blog (she's got a lot of stuff going on in her life at the moment, so I can totally understand); but fret not!  Kim, over at Mom Tried It, has taken over the linkup, so that it may continue.  This week's prompt is yellow, and I had just the perfect shot of some lovely forsythia that was in bloom on Duke's campus:

Forsythia at Duke

And now on to this week's Momma in Focus; Casey came up with the prompt of dessert for this week.  I tried to get a cute candid shot of Sammy and me while I was eating wedding cake last Saturday, but it just wasn't happening.  So I'm afraid I'm going to have to deviate from the theme (GASP!) and do something completely different:


When I said different, I meant it.  Sadly it was really, really bright when this photo was taken, so Sammy's face is almost entirely hidden by shadows.  This was a real fun one to pose; I'm actually balancing him on my knee, which I have raised up to about waist level.  My brother was trying to get a good shot while I was yelling, "HURRY BEFORE I LOSE MY BALANCE," so all in all, it turned out pretty well once you take all of those factors into consideration.  Here's a slightly better one from our trip to Zoo Atlanta (don't worry--I plan on dedicating most of next week to tales and photos from our recent trip to North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia):


A special thank you to my brother for working as my personal paparazzo on this trip (he definitely had his work cut out for him).  Be sure to check out the other lovely photos this week by clicking below--and don't forget to show Kim and Casey some love.  Have a great weekend everyone!

The forsythia shot is great. I love the other blooms in the background. The depth it adds to the shot is great.
I love the shots with your little one. I had to laugh about having your brother take the shot quickly. Definitely been there, too.
