shake it like a polariod picture {updated}

January 21st | david, photography



i found an awesome app for my iphone called shakeitphoto on shutter sisters via ali edwards.

it takes your iphone pic and turns it into a digital polariod.

totally addictive.

so yesterday i documented parts of our day in polaroids.

a very rainy day. very, very!

you can see my keyboard.  we spend a lot of time together!

i packed up markers, a notebook and snack for matthias so he could hang out at daddy’s office

while david and i headed over to radiology for more tummy xrays.

(still waiting for results, but i’ll update if i hear).

thank you for your kind comments yesterday.

i ‘ve been feeling frustrated and worried about david.

today’s a new, fresh start.  praying we get some answers today!

* * *


the GI office called and said david’s tummy xrays look great-no build up in the intestines, no excess gas on xrays.  so we are taking him off miralax to see if that helps with the cramping and pain.  hoping, hoping!!

and i’m over at (in)courage today.  so hop on over!

    I am so grateful to have “stumbled” upon your site. Not only have I been inspired by your jewelry designs, but I have also been deeply moved by your family, your photos, and your faith. I hope and pray that you and your family will experience the comforting and compassionate presence of God as you continue to search for answers and relief for your precious David.

  4. Polaroids look like SO much fun! I have an iPod Touch, but not an iPhone…so it won’t quite work for me. That’s okay. 😉

    Aw, poor David. Hoping {and praying} things go well today!

  16. kerry says:

    Good news about David. Hope things continue to be positive. Love the photos from the iphone. I’ve heard all about that but no iphone for me. I’ll live vicariously through you. Icy rain here today… wishing it were a warm enough rain to stomp puddles.

  17. Karmen says:

    I read you almost daily & never comment – but had to laugh when i saw your header today about shaking like a poloroid picture – I have been singing that little line for the last few days to my son & then yesterday we actually heard the full song on the radio. so funny that is what your blog title is today!

    hope David continues to feel better –


  18. Sheryl says:

    Praise God from whom all blessings flow-So glad for David.

  19. angie says:

    Sending thoughts and prayers your way!

    glad that david’s xrays were clear and good! hope he gets to feeling better! my daughter was on miralax for a time when she was younger, until i started doing research on it. it is not very good, especially long term. i started, instead, using cod liver fish oil in place of miralax. it was great! and healthy and good for her. i just wanted to offer that little bit of information…you may already know. all that to say, i hope taking him off of miralax will help his symptoms. good luck and please keep us updated, we will keep him in prayer! thanks, as always, for sharing your day with us. love it!

    totally downloaded those apps today – LOVE!! my kids, not ever have seen a real Polaroid, think it’s HYSTERICAL!

  22. Ses says:

    Thank you!! I never knew this existed & it’s amazing!! And only 59p 😀

  23. deezie says:

    The miralax seemed to hurt my little one too much also. We ended up doing bloodwork and found out she has an allergy to Dairy and beef. Have them check him for stuff like that.
    Belle can eat Dairy and Beef, but it will give her a bad bellyache. Like I said yesterday, she has a bellyache every single day. Sometimes with throwing up. He could have an allergy to Wheat also, Just enough to bother him, but maybe he just can’t tolerate it.
    good luck. I know how hard it is
    wonderful pictures

    Hi–was just reading about David. I just wanted to mention about the gluten allergy too. I was having terrible trouble and pain. I have always had trouble with constapation…..UNTIL I stopped all gluten (wheat, barley, rye)–you do not have to have celiac disease to have this problem. You can just be gluten sensitive and have the exact problem. They are discovering new things about this all of the time. It took me quite a bit of time to discover all the things that had these gluten items in them because it is amazing what you can find them in!! (ie lots of nuts have wheat, soy sauce, blue cheese, etc. ). Just thought I would mention it.

  25. nannykim says:

    Oh yes, and much ice cream has wheat in it too—you have to read the ingredients on everything.

  26. […] saw it this morning on the Lisa Leonard blog and as it was only 59p had to get it. Since then I’ve basically been sitting here, shaking […]

  27. Lisa, we’ve had the same experience with Miralax with our 3 year old (who’s system seems to need a little extra motivation to keep things moving). It can cause cramping. One thing I’ve found very helpful for my little guy is to only give him a 1/2 dose every other day or even every 3 days. Frosted mini wheats daily, in between doses, has helped *tremendously* in keeping his system moving … so much so that we’ve really, really scaled back the use of Miralax lately. Yippee for that!

    I’m glad David is feeling better.

  30. Kristin says:

    Hi Lisa,
    Visiting you for the first time through Joy’s Hope, and had also saw your beautiful jewelry just before that, when I donated to Hope for Haiti! I wear a necklace with my kids names, similar to the necklaces that you make (a girl I went to high school also has a business similar to yours)- I wear it everyday! I love that you will also put sayings or verses and other art, so pretty! I commented on this section because I just downloaded an app for my iphone that is similar-Hipstamatic-so much fun!

  31. Mrs. H says:

    oh man, just another app/reason to get an iphone! how fun! (visiting you via joy’s hope)

  32. meg duerksen says:

    lisa your jewelry is soooo beautiful. you are truly talented.

  33. Michelle says:

    I have been having so much fun with this app. Thanks for sharing. I don’t know who loves it more my 4 year old or me! The iPhone is hands down the best invention EVER!
