In the midst of this crazy-busy-season of family holiday portraits it's been good for me to stop and steal a few snuggles and smiles from my little guy. He helps me to slow down and live in the present moment. Gosh, I love him SO much! Here are a few images I took on his 7 month birthday a week ago. He just cut 6 teeth (yikes!) so he is sticking his tongue out all the time to feel his new teeth in his mouth. It's too cute! We snapped these photos on my unmade bed and I will let you in on a secret. What you don't see are the piles of dirty laundry on the floor, the dust building up on the bedside tables, stacks of unopened mail, and the boxes that we STILL need to unpack from our move. I would rather enjoy these fleeting moments with Caleb than clean my place. These images show that you don't need a pretty backdrop to stop and take a few photos of the ones you love and to be present in the moment.
In addition to sticking out his tongue, his other favorite thing to do right now is BOUNCE! He is so active and loves his bouncer... but he still wants to stick his tongue out there, too. What a funny guy!
