Flashback: Jack in June

Monday, June 27, 2011

I can't believe this was about a year ago.  I remember the day clearly.  I hadn't been back at work for very long, following maternity leave.  Jack had one of his first ear infections. (Little did I know that there would be more, there would be tubes...)  We were hanging out at home and it occurred to me that I should be taking pictures.

You know, that voice that you hear in your head, reminding you that this is all very precious, that outfit is cute (and not pooped on yet), he's just napped and is all rosy-cheeked, and if you don't take pictures RIGHT NOW, you will miss something fleeting and awesome.

So, I grabbed the camera.




And snapped these.  Looking at them now, be still my heart.  Holy moley, D and I make cute kiddos.

Who, incidentally, turn 16 months old this weekend, and now like to stare meaningfully into the camera while devouring chicken nuggets with messy hair.


I joked with Durel that he looked sort of like the guy from Prodigy with his hair like that.  To me, that just means that parenthood doesn't steal your sense of humor.  If it disturbs you, pretend I didn't say it.

Hope this finds you with your camera in hand and chicken nuggets on the table.
