This is one of the best photos I've ever snapped. It shows everything ..... his fanatical shoe obsession. His determination. His scraped knees. His boldness in going up to complete strangers and looking - really looking, at whatever they are doing. His MASSIVE feet. The look on his face has not an ounce of fear. The boy in the baby ... or is that the baby in the boy? I suspect he was born an adult, anyway.
We love each other so hard. It's been a long road, but we got there. He teaches me things I never knew. Drives me to the wall of frustration but I careen through it and come back again and look at the world through his eyes .... his baby blue innocent eyes. He just has a particular way of doing things. He ran before he walked.
