Our friend Jennifer, who is an amazing amateur photographer, met us at Phipps to shoot some pictures of Jamie. We're a month late on this but we're late on everything these days it seems so such is life. Jamie was a bit fractious as it was late afternoon and he had taken what is known around here as a "shit nap." Combine that with endless teething and the kid was not at his best. But Jennifer is a whiz and we got some really great shots and some even more hilarious outtakes.

I just love this photo. It captures him so well. This is how I see Jamie.
Me and the boy
The lighting in this is just perfect - that is exactly the color of his hair and skin.
Last, but not least, here is the photo that we ultimately chose as the official portrait:
So that's our chubby little man 18 months on. He brings us crankiness, babble, messes, endless eating, and - most of all - joy.
