Here is my response to those that might not understand. I am capturing memories of my kids. Both of them. Alone & together. Moments we will never get back.
Sometimes there might be a period that I post more of David. He & I are constantly together. On the weekends Michael is working, we don't venture out a ton. It's getting more & more difficult to go out by myself. So we hang out at home. And since he's the one that requires 100% care, he is often the one that I take more pictures of.
Occasionally though, you will see more of Kyle pop up. He's not a huge fan of having his picture taken. And he's sometimes incapable of being natural in front of a camera. But lately David hasn't been as happy. While I capture some of those hard days, they're not usually something I share on Facebook. It's a reality in my house that there will be those days, but I would rather share the joy that David can radiate. Often, when David is having a tough time, I find comfort in snapping happier pictures of Kyle. And yes. A lot of times I force him to come out of his cocoon of his bedroom solely for a photo-op. He hates it. But I love him.
The together pictures are even more rare than the ones of Kyle alone. But when we have those moments-the ones they're both wrapped up in-I have the strongest urge to capture every one of them.
I take more pictures now than I did 2 years ago. A lot of that reason is because of doctor's predictions on David's life expectancy. If he lives as long as the doctors say, I know I will appreciate my memories in my pictures. If he lives a lot longer than what they tell us, I will only have that many more memories to capture.
Love it or hate it. These pictures are part of my heart. And I love to share part of my heart.
