"Children do not need to be made to learn about the world, or shown how. They want to, and they know how." -John Holt

1st Newborn Photo shoot

I know at some point I'll have to start my own photography blog but then how will I make people go look at it? So for the time being, you'll have to slog through my picture posts to get to whatever the hell the kids are up to. ;p

Here we go! First up is my and everyone else's favorite. Who can pass up a bum in a hand? I can't.
Next body part, feet. Feet have a very short period of time to be considered cute. Soak it up while you can.
I suppose the face deserves some face time too.
And the smile... Thank god I caught the smile...If you were lucky enough to be invited to see the rest of this sweet baby's photos, they can be found here. :)

Thanks for watching.

"By nature people are learning animals. Birds fly; fish swim; humans think and learn. Therefore, we do not need to motivate children into learning by wheedling, bribing, or bullying. We do not need to keep picking away at their minds to make sure they are learning. What we need to do - and all we need to do - is to give children as much help and guidance as they need and ask for, listen respectfully when they feel like talking, and then get out of the way. We can trust them to do the rest."
John Holt
"In the end, the secret to learning is so simple: Think only about whatever you love. Follow it, do it, dream about it...and it will hit you: learning was there all the time, happening by itself." -Grace Llewellyn
"What we want to see is the child in pursuit of knowledge, not knowledge in pursuit of the child."
George Bernard Shaw
Real, natural learning is in the living. It's in the observing, the questioning, the examining, the pondering, the analyzing, the watching, the reading, the DO-ing, the living, the breathing, the loving, the JOY. It's in the joy. ~Anne Ohman
"How could youth better learn to live than by at once trying the experiment of living?" -Henry D. Thoreau
