My Jack

My iTunes:  Shine On by The Kooks

My Sadie gets a lot of exposure here...mainly because she is a teen and NEVER camera shy! That always makes a good subject. Her brothers are a little less excited about being in front of the camera but every now and then I manage to get one that is a genuine glimpse into their personalities.  The odds are in my favor to get that pic seeing how my camera is NEVER off.

This one image Jack is one of those captures I am happy to get.  He is more fashion forward than most of his 10 year old friends...he loves 80's music on his iPod, prefers to shop for his own shoes and clothes (like the shirt above and the orange converse shoes you don't see) and cleanliness is a top priority.  He informed me last week that he is growing out his blond hair long...most moms might cringe but I was over the moon at the thought of it!  I will be sure to update on his progress.

Today we all stayed close to home and are starting to feel better.  Hope you all are well where ever you are!

i swear i have a pic of me at around his age that is uncannily similar - handsome fella (him that is , not me!)

Carletta said...

He really is a cutie!

Paisley - I'm with him on that one and blue too!

Glad everyone is feeling some better.

He's getting so big! Great capture!

Britt said...

boy + "cleanliness is a top priority" = impressive!
I'm glad you're all feeling better! And I'm excited about tomorrow :)

He's a cutie pie, and I know!!
He's like our 12 yr. old twin boy, who loves Hawaiian shirts (even when they're not in style)

love those gorgeous eyes....I can't wait to see hair progress!

Robert said...

Nice shot of one of the not often seen. You always nail it with the eyes.

What a handsome little man. Beautiful eyes. I think its great when kids start wanting to get their own style.

I've noticed my 9 year old grandson spends more time looking in the mirror and combing his hair lately

CG said...

What a handsome guy!!And so original.

I hope everyone is feeling better!

Beautiful picture. What a handsome boy. He reminds me of my nephew back when he was that age. He's very photogenic, so I hope he gets used to being photographed. Not that it's a good comparison, but my first cats eventually just figured it was easier to let me take their pictures than to have me chase them around with the camera. Maybe your sons will reach that point too.

Raven said...

P.S. He's got GORGEOUS eyes.

Jeanne Damoff said...

Love the picture! What a doll. Sounds like he has a fun, creative personality, too. If he hangs on to the "cleanliness" trait into adolescence, consider yourself abundantly blessed.

Do posted pics of his hair progress. :)

This is one gorgeous boy! I am sure he wouldn't appreciate that, but look at that skin, the hair color and those eyes! Wow! So, how many girls are already following him around?

I'm glad you are feeling some better!

Rainbow dreams said...

thats a cute photo, I have a fashion conscious lad here too who likes his hair long!!

Paul Nichols said...

Good lookin' young man! Yes'm! And those gray eyes. Don't see that much on kids his age.

I had to go back to Project Blue today. Just had to. Come take a peek. I linked.

Get all the way well.

Anna said...

I've said it once and I'll say it again you're boys are so awesome!!!! Sadie is too but she already knows it...

I like the glint in Jack's eyes. He would look great with long hair! Can't wait to see him! He would look gorgeous with that golden hair. Remind me of a character in Lord of the Ring!

Laurie said...

Cute! Love the expression.

Reminds me of myself at that age... Think I had almost exactly that shirt as a 10 year old in 1979, btw.
