You must have known who this Snapshot was going to be about.
My biggest boy.
I can not tell you how great it is to have him home for the summer.
Within arms reach.
And it was with great joy that I dragged him out late yesterday afternoon to my favorite picture-taking spot.
Great joy on my part, at least.
He was a trooper. And even though it was with no notice that I asked him join my camera and me, he threw on his flip flops and was ready to go.
Did I mention that this big lug used to be a serious mama’s boy?
I won’t go into it more than that, for fear of completely embarrassing him. But let’s just say he didn’t want to go anywhere unless his mama was going.
Or, unless it involved dirt, mud, and seeking out new adventures in faraway lands.
He used to do that, too.
He was barely old enough to reach the door handle when he figured out how to get the front door open.
And he’d be off, running up the long driveway toward the road.
With just the sound of the gravel under his feet to warn me.
Thankfully, I always found him in time to grab him.
And try to shake some sense into him.
Never did happen.
He was a fearless kid. Climbed everything in sight.
And almost never got hurt. The times he did get hurt, he just dusted himself off, and went right back at it.
He’s not that little tow-headed boy anymore.
In fact, he’s as tall as I am now.
Much to his relief.
I can’t help but get all sentimental when I see how much he’s changed since I last laid eyes on him…
knowing how much he’ll change again in the coming weeks,
Guess that just comes with the territory of being a momma.

At least I’ve got him for the next two months.
And the really big winner from last week is Lula Lola. I dare you to read her post about her first born and not get misty…. and her pictures?!?
