And just like that, he’s four years old…

Well, my first born is FOUR YEARS OLD! How did that happen??
One of my favorite parenting quotes is “the days are long but the years are short” and I think of it every night when I’m exhausted, my little guys are asleep and the house is finally quiet! I miss them when they sleep even though during the day they barely let me breathe! Especially my Jason. He would live in my pocket if he could. He is a mama’s boy through and through and I’m the luckiest girl in the world because he is truly a dream come true…
Of course I have to take a portrait of him on his birthday every year and in true Jason style he makes me work for it! JBird is THE boss! I find myself taking orders from him and then realizing I’m the mom and I should be the boss… he doesn’t realize that. He will be something amazing when he grows up I just know it (true statement from every mom I’m sure!). He is the most determined, strong willed, quick witted and sensitive boy in the world and I love every single thing about him!
He stood still for about a minute so I could get these ones and then he was over it!

We were at my parents house, Jason’s happy place, so I just let him do what he wanted to do (like he always does anyway!)

I had planned to take these pictures an hour before sunset for the prettiest light, but then I realized by that time all of his cousins would be there and I would have no chance of a smiling at the camera portrait. So we went with 2PM, the worst light of the day, but the happiest faces of the day so the photographer in me looks at the horrible shadows, but the mom in me knows that these pictures are perfect.

I took these ones yesterday because it was the “golden hour” and he agreed. The best part of these is that they are so “Jason” in my eyes, heart and mind. That face makes me so happy and apparently me stepping on him makes him happy (As you can see from my white sock, I’m stepping on him to hold him down, whatever it takes)

Oh and because I didn’t have the blog up last year I never posted his three year old portrait. His birthday was Superman theme if you can’t tell.

For those of you keeping track to try to win a free session, this is my May post of the boys! My August post will be just Nicholas so he won’t be left out.
