If I Only Had a Spine…

January 4, 2012

When Jasper decides to use his spine, he can often tottle around holding just one supporting hand. This afternoon I let go of his left hand and he started a one-handed flail, looking for the support that the rest of his muscular/skeletal systems were clearly not willing to provide. (This is what happens when biologically, you are 50% little boy and 50% wet bag of sand.) To his relief, he managed to find a hand hold which he clung to with violence: his own hair. Anger and confusion followed.

This illustrative photo series was conveniently taken this evening:

Thank goodness he has a brother to protect him from his heedless parents.

    I love this! Your boys are gorgeous! Nessa gives the same kind of “love” to Livy. It starts out really cute and sweet and ends in some sort of headlock.

    Beautiful photo essay. I love your smooshy-partial-sand body, Jasper – it’s all the better for cuddling. xo

    …Once he gets going, we can see him venting his ‘current frustration’…ha,ha, put on your running shoes, family! They are certainly an adorable pair of beautiful little ‘cubs’! Hugs from GG & GG
