The other day in the late afternoon we decided to spend some time in the yard playing, coloring with chalk and if your name was Calvin, practicing how to use the front steps. I was standing guard to avoid the inevitable face plant and realized that it was the perfect time of day.
I got Cal seated on one of the middle steps, which he loved because he isn’t used to sitting on the steps, and grabbed my phone for an impromptu photo shoot. I take tons of photos of my boys and our daily lives, but there is just something about these pictures that are just perfect. It’s not that I am an amazing photographer, I know there are probably tons of technical things that could be better.
It’s just looking at this sweet boy who isn’t even two and watching him become a part of this family in a way Oscar never had to. He goes with the flow so much that we have to be intentional about making sure he gets attention among the louder stronger pulls all around us. Sometimes I need his light just as much as he needs my attention.
He is really coming into his own, this little man.
Little big Calvin.
