I can claim this kiddo as my favorite 8 year old because he’s mine! Oh, this guy…I could could blog all night long, and I still couldn’t cover all the reasons why I love him so. He’s kind, fun, easy to get along with, sweet, sensitive, funny, and a million more things.
He tries to act all serious and hold it in. But his joy is contagious and it doesn’t take much to get a smile like this out of him.
It has been an ridiculously long time since I got him in front of my camera. He really does not enjoy any part of having his picture taken. I will admit to some-ahem-incentives offered to join me on this photo shoot. I’d say it was well worth the happy meal plus a couple of dollars. 🙂
We moved over to Friendswood from Clear Lake a couple of months ago, and I’ve been itching to get out and explore a few Friendswood spots I’ve had my eye on. And they did not disappoint! I cannot wait to get some more families and kids out here!
He started to get a little more sullen and pouty towards the end, but he can totally pull off the pout. Such a handsome kid. (But don’t tell him that, because it totally embarrasses him!)
But right at the end, at the last little place I wanted him to sit, he tried again to hold in his smiles…
That joyful, fun-loving spirit is that bubbles over even when he tries to hold back is just one of the million little things I love about him. I’m so glad that he’s mine.
