Tobin-4 year shoot

I have a rough time getting “portrait” style pictures of my kids so I decided to treat Tobin’s 4 year pictures like I would any client.  I took him to my favorite spot and kept my patience (funny how I’m always patient with other peoples kids!).  I like them:)

Go to www.6littlefeet.com to see the entire gallery:)  And, family (or anyone else who’d like a picture of Tobin)-let me know your favorite(s) and the size you’d like and I’ll get them printed for you.

And, because I didn’t do this with his birthday picture, some fun facts about Tobin at 4:  he still loves to be carried (and we still comply), he loves to push buttons and take things apart, studying how it all might work, he recognizes letters (upper & lower case) and what sound they make but just realized that he isn’t writing his name yet (or just doesn’t “prefer” to, he can write the T & O without much trouble), he can count pretty high but always skips 15, and can just recently skip count by 10’s.  He LOVES to snuggle, is quite a charmer and is also pretty naughty sometimes.  We’re working on how he’ll quickly do something again before I get to him to stop.  He will eat lots of different foods and likes to dip-hummus and guac are his favorites (in fact, he’ll eat those by the spoonful).  He is quiet & sneaky and is not to be trusted in new environments-I’m just waiting for a fire alarm to be pulled because of his intense curiosity.  He uses big words like similar, actually and I’d rather.  He loves to sing, dance, play anything musical and seems to be just starting to want to play some sporting things.  And, he has my number big time, when he looks at me with those sweet curls and blue eyes and says “I just want a little love Mommy” or “I just need some snuggles”-especially at 2am which doesn’t happen too often any more.

First Leaves

A couple weeks ago we already had leaves and Marian literally begged to rake them on Saturday morning-we were like “sure, go ahead and go outside in the cold!”.  They did a great job!  I came home later in the afternoon to discover the entire lawn mowed except the leaf pile.  Kelly said he had a tree hugger blocking his efforts!  She sat in front of Kelly and wouldn’t move-later she relented, I’m sure he convinced her there would be a lot more to come.
