So. Much. Effort. Have you ever watched how much effort little kids exert while trying to master a new skill or do something a parent can do with ease? It was apparent throughout this mini-documentary session with one special family of three, soon-to-be four. Throwing hoops, stretching out one of those tube/noise-maker thingys (what are those called, anyway?), jumping off the couch, riding his scooter, and blowing bubbles (it’s harder than you think for little ones) – so much energy was spent on these activities. You could see how proud he was after each attempt as well as the drive to try again.
From the giant wake-up smiles (what toddler wakes up that happy???), to the shirtless breakfast (because, syrup), from the helmet obsession to fun bubbles, little W lit up my morning. He’s going to be an awesome big brother; what a lucky little sister-to-be.
I just loved spending some quality time with you, Sarah and Mike! Thanks so much for taking a chance on a documentary session. What a simply perfect way to mark the end of your time in Southie. May the adventures ahead of you (new home, new baby, new job!) be filled with joy and discovery.
