Best Shot Monday:Life is looking pretty Happy!

Great questions, and this picture answers both those questions.
happy person
1. I am reminded that my, 4 in July year old, is turning into a preschooler. Yes, I said it preschooler. He won't say he is 3, or even 3 1/2 or 3 3/4, no he is 4 in July.
2. Life is looking pretty happy. I asked him to draw me a face and he asked, "happy or sad?". I of course picked happy. Then I talked him through the other body parts but never once did I touch the pen. He drew this all himself and I had to show his father and hung it on the fridge.

I had that Mom moment when your child reaches a milestone right before your eyes. I know drawing a person is some sort of milestone, but for me this picture is more so a piece of him at the age of "4 in July" I can hold onto forever.



  1. Oh Cara, that is so precious! The big smile and big belly make ME smile!! He is quite the little artist and how great to have this piece of him at "4 in July" to keep forever.

  2. There is nothing sweeter than interpretive art done by "4 in July" year olds. ;)

  3. so precious, he did a wonderful job! they grow so fast :`)

  4. How sweet! I'm looking forward to the day my little one can do art projects. Thanks for sharing the sweetness!

  5. Its amazing what comes out of a "4 in July's" little mind. The picture reminds me of the ones Ella draws of me and my big baby belly.

  6. Wow! That is impressive. My 4 in June little boy is always surprising me (when he's not making me crazy..LOL). Taking photos of their artwork is such a great way to preserve such a sweet memory.

  7. Awww...that picture and your story is so sweet. They do change before our very eyes. I can hardly believe that Anya will turn 5 next week. It goes by so fast!

  8. I am loving this project, and can totally identify with being a working mom and chasing around a rough and tumble toddler the rest of the time!

    I am so thankful for this creative outlet, and for the chance to connect with other women through photography.

    I just recently discovered this Team-Up Thursday, but my girlfriend and I have another photo project of sorts happening elsewhere in the blogosphere. If you're interested:
