Sometimes when the boys look extra cute to me, I take them outside in hopes of getting a good picture. The more mobile Micah has become, the more difficult this task has become. But, I try anyway.
Last week, as we tried to corral Micah for at least one good shot, Jonah ran into the garage to grab his basketball. He is playing on a team at church and unless I'm forgetting something, the first practice just happened to be the first time he ever touched a basketball. So, his determination to practice dribbling that day totally trumped getting any more good pictures. I was glad he wanted to practice.
Then, one day later in the week, I took Micah outside to try to get pictures of him in one of Jonah's old outfits. I love comparison shots. Because of my insanely strange memory, I knew he wore that to Tammy's birthday party back in October of 2007. (HOW do I remember such random things??) So, I went back to that blog post so you could see Jonah in the same outfit.
He was walking SO fast that he kept falling down. And, since our yard has a slope to it, he had a hard time getting up. I tried to help him but he got mad every time I grabbed his hand. So, I just took pictures instead. :-)
I finally rescued him (against his will) because at the rate he was going, he never would have regained his footing.
