Him: Look Mommy.  No hands.

Me:  (long pause)

Him:  What?  It’s ok huh?

Me: (quick thinker that I am) You can stay up there if you will let me take your picture without being a turd when I get out my camera.

I didn’t really say that last part about being a turd.  Well, maybe I did say it.  Only Steve heard me though.

Then, I got some interesting shots of my boy.  He looks so different on the screen than what I experienced in person.  Here he looks kind of like the baby I used to have about 4 years ago.  Last night, I could easily see my teenage Gunnar sitting there on the railing.  I think its his uncharacteristically long hair that’s confusing me.
