All of my children are very unique and have great, individual qualities. But one thing they have in common is that they are all a bunch of goofballs! I love their silliness. I guess because it makes our times together fun and interesting. Also, because it reminds me a bit of the way I used to be before I got old and boring. Life is such a great gift and it’s very important to enjoy it.
I did my usual, “hey Nolan, can we go out and shoot a few pictures for your annual shots?” All I NEED is 15 minutes. Just give me that.” Truthfully, that really is all I need. Providing it’s 15 cooperative minutes. It didn’t help that goofball sister #2 was along for the ride. My kids all feed off of each other’s strangeness. They come by it honestly I guess.
After the first spot, he looked at the pictures and said, “I think I’m good.” Really? You think you’re good? Cause I’m pretty sure I’m not. Mama needs more shots! So I got more shots. Not many, mind you, but more. I just love this
This little guy is one of the luckiest babies I know. He has five older brothers who are always going to be looking after him and making sure no one messes with him. And I don’t know sports, but doesn’t this make a basketball team?
Hopefully soon I will get a shot of all six boys together with mom and dad but we’ll give little man a break first. He already wasn’t too keen on this whole newborn photo shoot thing. Between the bright sun and the ridiculous wind, he was actually quite the trooper!
Back in late summer last year I did Sam’s littler sisters’ pictures. I promised him that in the fall we would do his as well. He would get my undivided attention and quality time.
Well, fall came and went. As did winter and spring. Finally, we were able to get his annual pictures done just a couple of weeks ago. I felt that I owed him big time because I neglected him (unintentionally), so when we were done I took him to Dairy Queen. This was extra special because it was just the two of us and his sisters didn’t get to come. It was a very sweet time.
