It's Time For Pictures Of Carter Because Well, It's Been A While.







I love that the natural light that comes pouring into our front living room between the hours of 3pm and 4pm is absolutely as perfect as perfect natural light can get. I love that I continue to drag Carter into that room to take his picture day in and day out since he was only a few months old.  

I love that the Crazy Toddler Wildebeest will only sit still enough for a picture for approximately .27 seconds and only if I'm balancing a blue rubber fishy bathtub toy on my head and singing "John Jacob Jingle-Heimer-Schmidt" at the top of my lungs.  

I love that my Dad specifically requests an "off center picture with Carter to the right" for his personal computer's desktop image. As you can see, that's the reasoning behind these pictures. 

I love how there is practically not a single ounce of baby left on that boy's face. 

I love how the curl's above his ears fan out into little "wings." 

I love how I never have to edit or "brighten" his eyes. What you see is what you get with him. Amazing, isn't it?

I love how you can still see the crusties from this morning's bowl of oatmeal hanging out above his eyebrow.

It's Monday and I'm so in love. Happy Monday, Loyals!

  11. His eyes kill me! And he is such a little boy now! I also have a favorite spot for lighting and have tons of pictures of Kate in the same exact spot because the natural light is amazing!

  12. Such a sweet face. And, by the way, he doesn't look super amused by your performance--you may need to step it up a bit. ;)

  13. Love those eyes!

    And don't make him grow up any faster than he already is! He's still got some baby in him! But that could just be me trying to keep them babies forever!

  14. Very sweet. I've been thinking quite a bit lately (don't ask why) about how Simon will have his hair "cut". With the way my kids hair grows it won't be awhile til I have to really worry about it, but we were talking about a cute, baby-curly shag cut? Or a close, neat buzz cut? I know nothing about boys hair! Are you planning to keep Carter's curls for awhile? They're precious.

  15. I was going to say that he has such a Kid look now and not a baby look.

  16. He's gorgeous! In such a manly way of course.

    I totally think he still has a "baby" look. He's just so stinking sweet!
