If you can ignore Livia's swollen eyes (she just woke up)...
If you can ignore the sun blasting through the window, causing a very unsightly lighting situation on the carpet...
If you can ignore the fact that it appears I'm not wearing shorts...
(i'm totally wearing shorts)
You will see that I am holding something.
What is it, you wonder?
I'm so glad you asked.
It's my new Canon RC-6 Remote Controller. I picked up this little nugget for only $30, and I'm so glad I did. I am in hardly any pictures with my kids, and I know I'll be very sad about that one day. You just aim it toward your camera and click! You can also set it on a timer, so you can hide the remote before it takes the picture.
This will help me capture the little moments during the day with my kids.
And here's a frame of reference, so you can see how tiny it is.
Let the self-portraits begin!
No, just kidding. Don't be scared.
