an afternoon in the life of micah

IMG_1193

it has become rarer and rarer to take out my canon camera instead of just whipping out my iphone to grab a spur-of-the-moment shot most days, but last week i grabbed my camera and parked myself between the open sun porch door and the living room. the sun was going from cloud to cloud and i was simply enjoying the details of my (second) favorite boy.

he's the happiest with two trains (or cars, or buses or trucks) in hand

those eyelashes. no amount of mascara can give this jealous girl those lashes.

and then all fun halts for some unhappiness.

the annoyed lip bite. i know the face well.

then happy again, as quick as it was gone, it always comes again.

IMG_1077

choo choo. i said can you hug your trains and this is what i got. train hugging.

IMG_1076

we always stop for airplanes overhead. not one to drop a train, he tried to point it out to me with hands full.

IMG_1066

when asked to smile for the camera, this is the little boy grin i got.

IMG_1064

then this. annoyance?

IMG_1061


IMG_1058

then it was time to stop. furrowed brow and crooked lips said i was wearing out my welcome.
