My big boy is 3!

I'm so excited to share that my oldest boy finally decided to start smiling for my camera again. A funny thing happens when you grow up with a lens in your face... you RUN when it comes out. And he has done just that for about the last year and a half of his life. But I took him to a great field by our home (there were real live deer there! He was thrilled! He called them "springy deers".) Anyway, he just let loose and actually posed(?!?) for me! It's been so long I almost fell over with shock. Seriously. He loved this little number "3" I made for him, and wanted to show daddy when we came home. He slept with it for two nights. It now sits on his dresser or hangs on his wall, depending on his mood. If I had known that was all it would take I would have made it for him a long time ago!

I really think he's got to be one of the cutest kids alive... I love him so much. Enjoy this little glimpse into my personal life!


  1. I love it and I'm so glad he's smiling for you. What an adorable shot with the "3" and the balloons.

  2. Carter is a cutie! I'm so happy he's posing for you again. Yeah!1

  3. He is a looker and could he look more adorable in that tie. I decided that when you have them one on one they love the camera a lot more and feel special.
