I ♥ Faces Week 24 - Let's Hear It For The Boys!

I Faces is honoring Fathers this week... and the only rule is NO GIRLS ALLOWED.

Adults Entry: This is Marques Squared... that is, my two Marqs enjoying one another's company. I treasure the relationship they are building andcapturing their special moments on camera. Now certainly there are other shots I could've chosen, but this picture is one that I adore because Daddy is oblivious to Mommy's camera intrusion. Ya, of course, is fully aware that I'm in the room, but he's got this expression on his face that says "Hey! No girls are allowed."
Kids Entry: So my little Ya! isn't so little anymore... in fact, he's almost heading into toddler behavior. He's climbing stairs, playing sports and furniture cruising with ease. And because I'm following chasing him around while Chi keeps herself busy doing six-year-old things, I have quite a few more pictures of my resident masculine force. What does this mean? Agony for chosing the perfect image to post for this theme. I finally decided on this photo becauseKids!
  1. Ya was momentarily still enough for me to focus on his expressions and not him eating dirt or crawling away
  2. Every time someone stops us to say just how "cute" my little boy is (he'll hate that word pretty soon), they remark about his big eyes, which are the focal point of this shot
  3. It's so obvious (and cute) that his gnawing on the basket is to relieve his poor gums of the teething issues his third tooth is causing (and that's a part of becoming a big boy, right?)
Happy Father's Day! Let's honor the special men in our lives this week.
