Cherishing Your Cherubs Project Monday Link Up: Record...

The last few days I've been in a funk word wise.
 I just can't seem to gather up my 'blojo' (that's blogging mojo to those not familiar with the term). But I always have photographs and they speak volumes.

So in today's blog post which is part of a link up (The Cherishing Your Cherubs Project) with the gorgeous Naomi from Seven Cherubs, I decided I will place a display of my cherubs in all their glories... laughing, crying, sleeping. I think if you don't have time to make a record of your children via the written word or scrapbooking, there is always the 'quick pic': using your mobile phone to snap random acts of your child/ren being themselves... not posed, not a 'professional' photo shoot... just pure, honest, raw images that show nothing but truth and thus their beauty. 


Liam, my five year old, just finished the last morsel of his favourite delight: cheesecake. And was told "there is no more".. He is quite passionate about it. If only there was an endless supply hey mate?!?
I added a photo of Liam crying and angry because everyone who knows Liam will not know this face. His 'public face' is always so bright, with a look of blissful happiness. Although I do know the face in this picture well, as it is one of his forms of communication... I mean how else is he going to say: "But mum I want more, I bloody love this stuff".


Evangeline adores her food. She is such a good eater and it shows in her deliciously fleshy belly, thighs and cheeks, which I love to no end (and I like to nom nom nom on). She is quite independant too and gets somewhat upset if I don't let her hold the spoon or explore the bowl. Meal times are always messy with my soon to be one year old. And as she gets cheekier, the room gets messier. Luckily she's uber cute, other wise I would not let her get away with 'painting the walls' with bolognese.


Jack enjoys 'fitting' into tight spaces. All part of his sensory needs. I think it's one of his cutest traits. It is always fun seeing what cramped little area he can fit his 2 year old body into. He also loves to rub textures against his bare skin, especially on his round little belly. My favourite thing that Jack does at the moment is grab a hold of my hand and drag me into my bedroom to jump up and down on my bed. He insists I have to be there. I insist I join in. Cheeky monkeys jumping on the bed...


So there you have my first part of the Seven Cherubs Project. Please join in on this special little assignment, you won't regret it *insert winky face*

Oh yes, we have bolognese walls too. A 'popular' shade in many homes! Lovely pics of your musketeers.

Love your cherubs and love that you decided to do some keeping it real pictures. I have lots of pictures of my cherubs eating and making a massive mess! Sigh...the joys of motherhood hey! You have super cute kids and thanks for the brief snapshot into your life. Thanks so much for linking up. N x

I've had some funny looks for taking photos of my kids crying, but I think it's a GREAT idea to remember every facet of you child, even the not so picture perfect moment (and quite frankly, I think Liam knows what he's talking about, cheesecake, yum!). Gotto loves the messy baby dinner shots, the only time it's really cute, hey? I have a few shots of my two year old in tight spaces - these idiosyncrasies are the things that mean so much to parents, the things we have to remember! Great post!

Great pics, and so true that we should just capture 'moments' without worrying too much about the technical side of the photographs. With iPhones etc there really is no excuse! :)

This is my first visit to your blog, and its via 'cherishing your cherubs.' So, in my case, this post is an introduction of your three cute musketeers and I completely agree about catching the everyday moments. I try to do the same, although as my boy gets older it's harder to sneak the camera out before he starts posing! Great post.

Yeran, Your cherubs are adorable and I love the different faces you captured.
I need to get more everyday moments too.

OK, I can't get past Liam and him knowing that there is no more cheesecake! Ohhh poor little mate! Yes, he needs an endless supply of cheesecakey goodness. He is too gorgeous!

Good Golly Miss Holly! said...

Oh Yeran, your babes are just divine! I'm with Liam, I'm pretty passionate about Cheesecake and have been known to cry when none is left too x

Kellie said...

Oh Yeran, those pix are beautiful. I love that they're ``real'' photos. These are the moments we remember! x

Amy said...

Gorgeous Photo's. I love 'real' photo's. They are the ones we hardly ever share, but they almost always have the best stories!

Kate @ Puddles and Gumboots said...

Great photos I love that you captured some real everyday moments! I have to agree with Liam it's pretty upsetting when there is no cheesecake left!

Kellie said...

Liam matey, I feel your pain! I've been known to shed a tear over the end of a cheesecake too ;)

You've captured some classic moments there, I'm sure they'll love to look back on this too!
