If I could pick a photo to define what my son is like right now, this might be it. He is suddenly into more grown up boy things like punching (not people, but he likes to look at himself in the mirror while furiously punching the air) and making little explosion noises with his mouth and just being more "tough" in general. It's all a big facade though because inside he's just a momma's boy and he's still sweet as ever. I love this picture though...seriously...love it.
See? I took this right after the photo above and he can't quite suppress his smile.
Balancing on the tracks. I really wish his shirt weren't so short, but he still looks adorable, and I achieved the monochromatic look I was going for...kinda helps that his hair matches the brush behind him!
I realize the focus is a bit off in this one, but he is so quick and was walking right at me. I still love it though since it's such a genuine smile.
Hamming it up! I love this kid!
Oh my gosh, this sweet face just kills me.
Jumping. One of his favorite things to do...this kid has boundless energy.
Another cute one of him sitting on the tracks. I know they are similar, but I just love them both.
As we were getting ready to leave I asked him to stand by this wall so I could get a little variety, and this was his expression. Typical. You can always tell how he feels about something!
This was snapped right after I told him I'd give him a piece of candy if he smiled for a couple more pictures. Yes, I bribe my kids with candy sometimes...don't judge...
This might be my favorite. I love his expression, the fact that he has his hood up, and the way his eyes look almost grey against the concrete wall.
There you go, my sweet boy at age four and a half. I'm so glad I did photo shoots with both my kids recently. Now I'm going to have a terrible time trying to decide which ones to print!
