Grins and Cuddles

I have mentioned a few times how hard it is to get Holden’s sweet grin on camera. I think he just has a fascination with the green light that goes off before the flash. So I normally end up getting the furrowed brow look, rather than the 100 watt smile that we all know and love. Can you call it 100 watt even though he has no teeth and normally peeks that little tongue out a bit instead? I love it that way! All gums! Anyways, last night we tricked him. Jeremy was making him smile and for some reason a couple of times, he whipped his face towards me (the photographer). And so we caught a couple of his beautiful smiles for you to all ooooooh and ahhhhh over. See, he really is a happy boy. Don’t let him fool you. He’s not as serious as he might want you to believe.

And here is his cuddly side. Luckily I get these sweet cuddles several times a day. Before he goes down for a nap and right when he wakes up, he loves to be cuddled. And I have to say I love it to. Jeremy and I were playing our addictive card game last week and here is how Jeremy handled it when Holden awoke from his nap. Just so sweet!
