Sometimes I just can’t believe when a baby becomes one. Wasn’t it just a month ago when he was born? But I know with my babes, when they FINALLY turn one it’s pretty great. Just wait until diapers are a thing of the past. Now THAT is a milestone worth documenting… or waiting for… because what kid wants to look at their potty documentary? But it would be so cute. Classic pull-out-when-mom-meets-that-girl-he-likes album. “Oh, look how cute he was!”
Mom was game, if a little unsure, for having me come and photograph at their home. “Our place is really, really small…” It was perfect. Enough light, enough toys, all his favorite things… This little guy was happy, he loved showing me all his favorite things. He really wanted my camera. Wanted to know how that thing works. Something in his eye told me, if he could, he would have taken the thing apart to see all the gears churning inside. A future tinker.
