The essence of our son. Ok, we know it is back to back posts about him and we will get back to scenery, lions and birds, soon, but it is an important milestone, 1.5 years for us and deserves a back to back Boeta. You see 18 months ago, when the sun set, we were on a new road, incredible, exciting, scary, a little unexpected, but oh so wonderful and with the grace of our Heavenly Father, we have reached this day.
After Boeta’s bath last night, daddy decided to try to capture his son’s essence at 18 months. Yes, missing is the odd tantrum or unhappiness due to one of his parents not playing with him or something he wants but cannot get, but those are luckily not very often. So as the sun went down over our rumbling ocean, daddy released the little chap and snapped away. Enjoy. This is our son.

I love the shot with his hands on his hips.
Me too, he actually hold his hands behind his back and walks like that, but released as I took the pic. Still looked nice, a fav.
My favorite also. Reminds me of when I forget something and am trying to figure out where I put it. 🙂
Or dare I say it, mom, what have you done?
Me too! That’s my fave. 🙂
A very charming little boy 😀
Yesterday I had thought that it was 1 and half yrs. It’s that 18 months thing that always throws me off. In the short time I been visiting he has grown sooooooooo big. Almost a man asking for the car keys. A full head of hair and beautiful smile to boot. Times like these are meant for a camera this is the best scenery . I am bless to be able to be a part of it all from so far away . Thank you for sharing and being so open. Great smile, happy and health. You must be doing something rite
It is our pleasure, glad you find it worthwhile to follow us. We are fortunate to have a active healthy little boy giving us so much joy and love.
What lovely shots. You must be so in love with him!
Oh, that is for sure.
I can still remember that sweet wet baby smell and my kids are 39 and 41. I’m still wild about them.
Will never change.
Your little boy is adorable!
He looks like one very happy, healthy boy. Toddlers are a lot of fun (if you can keep up with them!) 🙂
You can say that again, very little seems to happen at walking speed, it is all zoom-zoom. He he. Thanks for the comment.
