Through Teensy's Eyes

A little while ago, I ran Janae to the airport and left my two little girls here in my sister-in-law's capable hands. After I returned, my sister-in-law confessed to me that Teensy had gotten a hold of my camera in my absence. I had forgotten the incident until I later downloaded photos onto my computer. I had a good laugh as I saw all the photos Teensy had taken before surrendering my camera to her aunt. Enjoy!


Here's a cousin eating lunch. This little guy thinks that all junk food originates at Aunt Mendy's house. In my defense, I fed him apple and pear slices and cookie dough for snacks!


Here's one of Auntie with her baby girl--clearly not registering that Teensy has my camera and is on a photo spree.


Your guess is as good as mine on this one. Who knows what the heck this is?


This is a jack-o-lantern she painted in preschool in October. It's on display on the fridge. Apparently, she thought that it's beauty should also be preserved digitally.


Here's a view of my dining room wall I don't normally see. I see the photo collage head on, but for Teensy it's from an angle.


Here's a close-up of one of Teensy's treasured blankies. She needs something silky to suck her thumb and this is one of the satin-bound blankets she uses.


Look at this baby cousin's big blue eyes! Adorable!


So, remember when I was telling you that Teensy loves her blankies? Here's another one! She really loves her blankies.


Teensy also really loves her little sister, who is featured in her next few shots.


Here, Teensy expertly captured the squishiest, most squeezable patootsky on the planet. I grab this thing about 3784 times a day. I just can't help it.


I can't help but (no pun intended) wonder: did her sister know that countless shots of her bum were being taken? If she did, I can only imagine the giggling that occurred between the two of them.


I guess Teensy likes my decorating; this is the second wall she photographed. At least my five year-old likes my vinyl lettering--take that, Seriously So Blessed!


Teensy snapped this classic picture of a picture. This is our family picture from two years ago. I actually was so rushed to get us out the door to this appointment that I forgot to put on a bra! Yep, I'm braless in this family portrait. Not everyone can get away with that you know. I'm just one of the lucky ones.



Here, Teensy made it back to the kitchen where she found her aunt feeding her baby cousin some mashed up peas. Look up, Auntie! There's a preschooler on the loose with her mom's good camera!


Finally, a self-portait of the artist/culprit. Clearly, she hasn't perfected this task yet. Don't worry, I see plenty of practice in her future; a camera is at the top of her Christmas list!

So nice to see life through the eyes of a child...we don't often get that privilege. Thanks for posting it. Love you.

Love the pictures of your house. Especially the vinyl. I put Issy's name on his door and wish I could do more but I will not put anything up if I am moving. Grr!

Corinne said...

OH MY WORD. Those bum pictures SLAY me. I was laughing out loud!

Meg said...

Your commentary on the pictures was the best part! Too funny! Jaide loves taking pictures as well but she mostly takes pictures of herself. Maybe some day she'll be taking pictures of her little sister's bum too :D

Margaret said...

Beautiful shots. So much more exterior than Zach's first shots which were ALL of his face

She's going to be giving her Aunt Heather and Aunt Esther serious competition in the photo dept.

Rachelle said...

I can't believe how good these pictures are. She may just be a pro soon. My kids like to do this with my cell phone.

Christie said...

How fun!!! My sister did this with her kids on vacation once. their photos are very insightful. I loved this post

Dawn Bader said...

What fun! :-)

Sommer said...

Man those pictures are so cute and adorable. I lvoe seeing what she valued enough to take pictures of and she's not bad at taking pictures either!

Mary said...

I like Rachelle am impressed by the sheer quality of the picture taking at that age. And I am a bum squeezer as well.

Julia A said...

Those are priceless--particularly the cutie patootie :) Creativity like this must be nurtured--good thing she has you for a mom.

Amber said...

Frankly, I can't believe there weren't more pictures of herself in there. She so does love her yellow hair!

Adam said...

Kenna is bootilicious. That's for sure!! Very fun post.

Adam said...

That is fantastic! I love to see what kids think is interesting enough to photograph.

Tracy said...

You are such a sweet mom. Selena always takes random pics and I just delete them. But you publish them -- some day I'll be as good a mom as you...

Heidi said...

So funny! Please come decorate my walls!
