And it's a lovely age. I know all the old farts say that but it's true.

blackbird said...

A lovely one, too.

Aw, he's gorgeous! I get a sense of Peter Pan meets Christopher Robin meets Robin Hood from that one.

How did we ever get so clever as to make something so beautiful. I wonder at it all everyday, I look at my sleeply eyed little girls across the table and still think
'where did you come from' adn how did you get to be so pretty.
wow , being a mummy is still my favourite thing .

He's a beauty, all right. In fact, this photo looks like the very best classic children's book illustration...

Beautiful photograph of a beautiful boy .
(You'll have to hide all these comments or he'll expire with embarrassment !!)

So lovely. As, of course, a boy of yours would be.

I know it is not politic to call a boy beautiful, but he is.

Martina said...

Such a beautiful picture. Someday you will look at the smooth little-boy neck with awe when he is all grown and stubbly.

My boy is 9, and I seem to be going through a mourning over how quickly it is all passing. I went to a small toy store I used to take my son to each week on our regular outing (first mommy's errands, then the toy store -- to play with the display train set, then a picnic at the playground). I missed the kid so much -- he's only in school now, but still -- I was choking back the melancholy tears by the time I left. Where's the slow motion button? Better yet, where's the rewind.

Just want to say thanks for this post (including the comments!) and the last, with the story of the 14-year-old boys. My own boy is not yet two and I'm sometimes so overwhelmed with the thought of him growing up and no longer being my "beautiful boy". So nice to see they *can* remain that, both inside and out.

Hello
I'm sorry to butt in with an unrelated topic. Actually, I refer to one of your earlier posts. I notice you have a pattern from La Droguerie. I too have found their marvellous website and amazing patterns, but I'm not sure how to get hold of the patterns. Can you help? Thanks so much. Jo
ps My boy is 5 and brown eyed too.

I would just like to reach out and touch that whorled ear, that beautifully brown hair, that gentle curve of the lips.
He truly is a splendid boy and, yes, looks so gentle.
Happy Birthday.
Aside: yes, I have these thoughts and desires about my own boy. Being one of my own he doesn't mind the occasional stroke of the hair, squeeze of the arm and back scratch.

Isabelle said...

Yes indeed. A little boy for just a moment longer... what a sweetie.

Elizabeth said...

What was he looking at that made him so contented and interested? He looks quietly pleased. No wonder you are proud of him!

What a handsome boy. His features are almost perfect. He is a cutie.
