"A portrait of my little boy, once a week, every week, in 2014."

Bit late this week as we were dealing with 2nd birthday madness Friday - Monday so I've barely had time to think about anything else. Also (I shamefacedly say) I'm cheating on two fronts:

1. This was actually taken at the very start of this week (Monday morning). To be honest up until Monday lunchtime it all felt like last week anyway. Well that's my story anyway and I'm sticking to it!

2. Its an instagram pic which I had promised myself NOT to use. Doh! 

Regardless I love this picture both in its composition and because its soooo Owen. He was out for a birthday woodland walk with his friends and decided to have a lie down. There was no apparent reason for the lie down. Maybe he was listening to the woodpecker... or watching for squirrels... or literally just having a rest...who knows...

  1. I saw this shot in the line up at Jodi's and I couldn't help but click. What a beauty it is! Your Owen sounds like a keeper. x

    1. Thanks Bron! Glad you like it. He definitely is!

  2. This is an awesome photo. Totally worth 'cheating' for.


Thank you for visiting Thisel & Bean and taking the time to leave a note. I really look forward to reading your comments ...
