Oh this baby boy…
His mom and I have been friends since High School. My earliest memories with her include riding around in her light blue 80s Buick. Being two years older than me, she was often my chauffeur, and we’d end up in my parent’s driveway so she could “drop me off by curfew” and would end up talking for hours in her car, her engine running, while we’d solve all of our life’s troubles by listening and repeating in a different way what the other person had just said 🙂 We were pretty sure we had life figured out between the two of us, and many deep thoughts, secret crushes, and spiritual questions were discussed during those long talks!
We continued this deep friendship all the way through college and are still close friends today… and I’m pretty sure all those years ago, when we’d talk about “our future husbands and children,” a sweet-cheeked, big-blue-eyed little boy was mentioned somewhere along the line… and now that baby exists. His name is Jackson and he is beautiful!
Here are some pictures of this sweet little buddy. He was seriously a joy to capture and made my life very easy with his bright eyes and big smile.
See what I mean?
His Mom just posted that he turned 6 months a few days ago… which shows how behind I am, considering he was around 4 months when I took these pictures. We’ll catch up soon!!
His mom is a Cardinals fan and Dad is a Cubs fan… I say GO CUBS GO all the way!
Thanks to Jon, Heather, and J for letting me capture for you!
