a few grins

This little guy has eyes for his momma. I wish I could say these grins were directed at me, but it's not like I supply his food or anything. Besides, someone has to be in charge if maximizing the in-focus area in such shallow depth of field.

Same story. Momma is camera left this time.

Of course this grin isn't really directed at me either. More the camera. At least the grin is pointed at me. This was taken during a really fun vacation with some good friends. I have a whole bunch of pictures from then that I will sometime get around to posting.

This is not so much a smile as much as what happens when a 4 year old watches "Two Towers" with his older brothers twice through in its entirety on a six-hour road trip . I'm pretty sure he's shooting an arrow at me.

But I don't fear his imaginary arrows. Not even a bit.

I mean seriously... How does he even see through those things, let alone aim his imaginary bow?

That baby will break hearts. Mighty handsome.

This is a nice grin collection.
Bob and I are admiring Justus' cowlick. Will his hairline match that of Ethan, Aidan or Luke, I wonder?
Ethan has quite the set of lashes, too.
Thanks for sharing these pics of your sweeties!

It's so good to see more pictures of Justus and how he's growing so much. I love that smile and those dimples. When I first saw it I thought, "Whoa he looks like Mike." Then Luke started coming into focus, then Amy and then...well it's just plain hard when there are five kids to choose from and the two parents right.

Such sweet smiles from Justus. He is a charmer!

It doesn't look like Ethan's lashes are quite as dark as yours are though. Perhaps then he will be able to avoid getting accused of wearing mascara.
