"A child is a curly, dimpled lunatic." ~Emerson
I think he must have known my Aidan. Born with a one-sided dimple and a single-minded ferocity, Aidan has always wanted to live life his way: namely, the opposite of my way. I can't lie to you and tell you Aidan is an easy child. He is not. He is stubborn and unbelievably tenacious. So frequently, I grit my teeth throughout the day over some upset in which Aidan continually tests whether or not I will hold my ground.
And while the ins-and-outs of life with Aidan aren't always relaxing nor easy, I do admire his unwavered resolve. As a child, this demeanor is vexing, but as an adult, it's compelling. I look forward to seeing who he will become.
In light of how I just described him, it should come as no surprise that Aidan was considerably harder to photograph. I told him I wanted to take his birthday picture, so he insisted on wearing a bulky jacket with the hood over his face.
And when I asked him to hold still, he did this-->
I asked him to put his hands down and smile, and... well....
However, when I asked him to hold his sister's hand, he was happy to oblige.
And then smoosh her in a bear hug.
He loves his sister, has a brilliant mind when he feel like sharing it, and can be very affectionate on his own terms. Happy Birthday, to my fiery little boy! I love you!
Despite that Houston is know for its hurricanes, it seems a little light rain is all it takes for our internet to go down. My apologies for the delay, if you are waiting for a response from me, you should hear back by this evening.
