In the picture to the left, I was making high-pitched noises at James to see how he reacted to them. And in the one to the right, bordered with Instagram’s help, James was just being himself as I took the picture. I don’t even know if he was posing on purpose or what. I love his facial expressions, though…
Apparently being able to talk with one’s face is genetic, and James inherited that from me. I love this!
The picture on the left was taken as soon as we put the plant in the ground, and the right one was taken somewhat recently. So far, my youngest son has passed the test of not getting interested in it to the point where he pulls leaves off of it or it out of the ground, which is great! With any luck, it should start growing yellow pear tomatoes soon, and I can introduce… well, at least Jason to the plant more.
I’ll be sure to take more pictures of it as it continues to grow, as will I take pictures of any other plants we decide to grow this summer (and subsequent summers, I am sure). It’s educational, and it’s fun!
When James’ hair is… more abundant on his head, it’s generally medium brown. But when we trim it like this, it winds up looking blonde. I’m still not sure how this keeps happening, but whenever his hair is particularly light in pictures like these I want to take a step back and go, “Hey! This isn’t Jason!”
This is one of my favorite pictures of him, though. Getting this kid to stay still for more than a moment or two at a time is a rare thing. He always has to be on the move. It’s just his nature, how he operates.
