These photos are from last September. Jack was six months old. He wasn't crawling, yet. He couldn't escape when I pulled out the camera. He was still relatively easy to photograph.
His eyes have lightened a bit to a beautiful hazelnut brown. His smile is just as infectious. And he still stares at his toys just as intently as he did a year ago. He has lost the multiple chins in the last year. And his hair is a bit longer.
Had you asked me a year ago if I thought it was possible to love him more than I did at that point, I would have said absolutely not. Now, I feel like my heart grows every day with love for this kiddo. I'm the first to admit that I'm biased, but this little guy truly is an amazing little human. He's got a funny little sense of humor. His curiosity can't be sated. And he's such a smart little bugger. Everyday, I'm excited to see what he'll come up with next.
