Special Days.

Special days that include one-on-one time with Nana and Papa. Undivided attention. Building projects. A movie. No brothers. Perhaps a walk to feed the ducks. Perhaps a trip to McDonald's (tho Papa says he's done his annual trip there already and won't be returning soon!). But, gosh it's hard to WAIT for Special Day to begin.

Tick tock. Tick tock. Tick tock.

And the Littlest Dude is exceedingly happy, because Special Days are, well ... Special.

I like the colors in Littlest Dude's tye-dye shirt. Very nice!

The expressions on his face are great. The pure joy. Waiting is so hard as a little kid (and as an adult). I think that's wonderful the grandparents make special days for the kids. Makes for neat memories.

Those are great pictures. But when my camera is out...my kids feel the need to pose. Your pictures look so natural. Normal expressions. I wish I could convince mine to ignore the camera on demand.

So...what did he do for his special day?

Kat - Don't worry, I have plenty of those pained, "Don't take my picture!", awful photos. I just don't post those ;-) In the case of these "waiting" photos I probably took 20 just to get a couple I liked. By the time Papa arrived the Littlest Dude was way too excited to be bothered any more by the camera!

What a beautiful story. It is such a big part of childhood, waiting. I still remember that amazing feeling I got when my grandparents car pulled up in front of the house after waiting hours and hours at the window.
How cool that you have captured that moment!

You captured his mood in his expressions just beautifully. Such great kids ou have!
