Happy birthday golden boy!

And what does bcbg stand for - should I know?

nutmeg said...

Bec, you're quick mate! Here I was thinking I was going to have a clean slate...

Not that I've got anything profound to say. But that is one gorgeous photo. Did you zoom in on the feet or is it part of a larger photo?

Beautiful words...as usual :-) Happy birthday to your middle boy.

BCBG = bon chic, bon genre.

A French term for someone who is innately stylish.

Pronounced baysay,bayjay (only say it in French, not Kath and Kim).

Suse said...

Oh sorry nutmeg - no it's not part of a larger photo. It's a standalone.

I have a thing for baby feet.

and you

Happy birthday to your boy!

I could not possibly love that picture more. My boy, who will be 11 in April, now has great big giant man feet, but when they were teeny and wrinkled and soft like that I used to nibble on them unrelentingly.

Just beautiful. I wish I had had the foresight to photograph baby hands and feet.

Happy Birthday to your darling boy.
I'm off to take a photo of 4 and 6 yo feet. They grow too fast.

Happy Birthday Golden Boy.

Such lovely baby feet. Looking at that photo makes my womb hurt, I tells ya! Must do what Lazy says and photograph the 5 and 3 year old feet.

Mama Lamb said...

Aww... many happy returns of the day! My middle son is 10.5... that was a shock, turning 10. And the youngest now being 6...infancy seems soooo far away.

Happy Birthday in the Pea Soup house!

Many happy returns.

HB, Golden Child !

My son was born with man-hands.
And a man-head .. but I digress ...

Beautiful photograph.

It's that volatile thing that stands out. Must be that stray French gene.

-J.

P.S. It is a well-known fact that nibbling on baby boys' makes them grow to hairy man-feet even faster.

PS Oh, and Happy Birthday!

Yes, babies feet are beautiful - so tender and squishy.

Missed this post before was at the beach (think it may have been the same beach as you)! My middle boy of 3 turned 11 on 23 January and sounds a lot like your boy (though I am nowhere near as eloquent as you when I try to describe him) maybe it was the moon or something! Thankfully my smallest boy still has yummy feet although nothing on this earth would tempt me to nibble on the feet of the biggest boy these days!
