Yes, a crazy kind of love. The good kind of crazy – like a fluttering heart when I see their smiles and hear their laughter. And, also, the bad kind of crazy – like the piles of dirty laundry that seem to regenerate every 2.5 minutes. I would never have imagined, in a million years, either of those scenarios. Ha, ha!
My two boys. My two snugglies. My lovey-doveys. Meet Kid #1: Sweet, soccer-aficionado, smarter than smart, patient older brother, dimply-cutie. And meet Kid #2: Funnier than Steve Martin, stubborn like his mama, incredibly sensitive, sparkly-eyed lovey. These two are pals – yes, they get on each other’s nerves from time to time (i.e. often), but I imagine that they will be the best of friends for a lifetime to come. When I think about them, the relationship that they are fostering, how they will be together longer than with anyone else they will know, it reduces me to happy tears.
Bah(!) I don’t want to bring YOU to tears, so let’s get to the goofy pics. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
We start off with not so goofy ones – man, did I have to bribe them for these shots.
And now having a little bit of fun, because a photo shoot SHOULD be fun!
And perhaps getting just a bit “grumpy” now that I’ve subjected him to 40 minutes of photos and location changes. Let’ just pretend that Kid #2 has gone into his “GQ” mode.
And back to goofy. Kid #1 is already dreaming about the ice-cream I promised them. Yep, they got ice-cream out of me for this photo shoot.
AND(!!) Happy Valentine’s Day to my husband David, who is not pictured here, well because you wouldn’t want to see a grown man holding a bunch of balloons. I assure you, he is just as cute as the twwo kooky kids above.
