Yesterday afternoon, just as I had lifted Jax into his crib for his nap, he surprised me.
"Em in crib, too?"
"You want Em to get in your crib with you?"
Might have been the world's best ploy to avoid taking a nap (he never did take one), but he knows me and knows that I'm a sucker for brother-sister camaraderie. I plopped her in, ran to get my camera, and to my dismay, took some pretty mediocre pictures.
The moments were perfect; it was the photographer who needed some assistance. In hindsight I think I used the wrong lens, my focus and depth of field were off, there wasn't enough light and we were inside. All recipes for blurry, grainy photos. So I edited them the best I could and here's what I got. Just imagine them through the lens of a professional!
Em still has some serious hero worship going on. Her big brother is the center of her universe and she doesn't even try to hide it.
But I think all her persistence is paying off.
Then he started getting sleepy and wanted to lay down and rest. And, surprise, surprise! Guess who he wanted to lay down with him!
The result of this half hour of bonding was one happy little girl,
look at her loving him...
one happy little guy,
and one very happy mama.
Oh, and a bunch of blurry pictures. Oh, well! I'll take what I can get!
