As hard as it is for this mama to wrap her head around, our little man turned six last month! The baby who once had a hard time learning how to crawl and walk has turned into a little super human with enough bounding energy and strength to get enough excersize for our entire family. His new obsession is Parkour, and winter has not been kind to his diligent need for practice. His bunked has become a climbing and jumping platform, our doorways his practice for scaling walls- us mama’s are often guilty of using the phrase “the kids are just climbing the walls!” well I can whole heartedly say its been true in our house this season.
Last week we went to visit some good friends in NC and enjoyed some slightly warmer weather and at least not snow covered grounds. The kiddo and I took this opportunity to take some Parkour shots outside of Target. Later this same day, buddy got the bloodiest nose and mouth I have seen yet while trying to jump through a big O sign in the mountains of Virginia. I am glad we got pics in the shirt and tie before the were drenched in blood 🙂 Had I not been a panicking mama at the time of his fall, those shots might have been quite fitting too. Anyway, I can’t think of a better way to take a portrait of my little man than the shots above. N, may you always have the spirit of adventure and exploration that you do today- and may your confidence, faith, grace in imperfection, and patience grow stronger with each passing year. I know its just a blink of an eye until you are towering over me in hight and dreams… but you will always be my baby boy. I love you!
