After going to a pancake breakfast this morning we mostly just hung around the house. I decided to take a few shots. I’ve been also trying to take more pictures with my iPhone. I don’t give my iPhone 5s enough credit. I always feel like I need my actual camera with me everywhere, but I’m trying to use my phone more often to take pictures. There are things which it can do that my camera often times cannot do. For one thing it has a wider angle lens on it than I usually use on my camera, so it’s great for being able to capture wider angle pictures. But it also does a great job with exposure and white balance, lending itself to some great pictures. Some of the pictures below are taken with my iPhone.


Ezra SO wants to crawl right now. He’s getting closer.

Micah got Stuck

This captures life at the Seaman household pretty accurately.

Lovely light coming through the windows.

Sarah looks over at Micah while he plays.

Sarah reading

Sarah has been reading the books that the show “Call the Midwife” is based upon. She has had a hard time putting them down.

Sarah Reading

Here’s a shot in color.

Clean dishes

Here’s a shot for my future self – to remind myself of the dishes I clean so often. Lots of kids forks and spoons and cups these days.

Kitchen Sink

As Sarah and I are preparing to leave the Chicago area most likely, I am trying to capture some aspects of the apartment we live in now for future memory. This place is old. I like to think it has character. Our faucet was so rickety that it broke twice before I decided that it was time for a new one.

Ezra on the Floor

Ezra scoots on the floor. The last few days and weeks before he starts crawling. Micah supervises.

Ezra. Cute as can be.

Ezra in the Bean Bag

Ezra likes being in the bean bag, but he also wants to be able to crawl out of it.

Goofy Ezra.

Bucket Head Micah

Micah the bucket head.

Micah and Friends

Definitely not the clearest shot, but Micah loves hanging out with his buddy Charlotte. And she enjoys being in charge of him.

Candy corn

S’mores candy corn. Yes. It’s good.
