There was a guy on TV here in Australia a few weeks ago whose photos were going viral. His photos were selfies he was taking with his baby where they did matching faces. Apparently this was a new trend that he started. Ummm no I've been taking selfies with my baby since she was about 6 weeks old. Mine just didn't go viral because I never shared them publicly. That's my reasoning anyway.
I'm not one of those internet crazies who has to take a million photos of themselves because they need to be popular or to boost my self esteem. Far from it. I hate photos of myself. I love taking photos (I know this because my phone keeps warning me its almost out of storage every second day no matter how many times I transfer files to my computer), I just don't like being in photos.
My mumma bubba selfie stage started as a way to calm/distract/occupy/hypnotise an usettled baby. I soon worked out if I held my phone above her head with the camera on reverse so she could see herself she would be amused. Thus I had discovered an excellent way to spend an extra 10 - 30 minutes in bed each morning, hurrah! Because nobody wants to get up at 5am, and if they say they want to they are lying.
I include myself in the photos because:
A - We don't really have many photos of us together because we are usually home alone
B - She needs adult supervision so I am always next to her and within the camera view
C - It's fun!
Here's some of what we get up to
And this happens when she's had enough...
And that concludes this weeks dose of cuteness x
