Earlier this Spring I had the pleasure of hanging out with the Wards for an afternoon. They wanted to document their littlest one at 6 months. I had such fun getting to know this family, and especially getting to see Philip and Charlie playing together! You can tell they are gonna be best buds.
This is Philip.
He had lots of good expressions for me while we were hanging out.
This is Charlie, Philip’s older brother. Charlie had just been roused from a peaceful slumber for the occasion.
Needless to say, he wasn’t completely sold on me or my camera at first.
While Charlie eased back into the day, I hung out with Philip and his sweet mom.
Once we headed outside, Charlie decided i was alright, and even let me see some of his awesome skills.
We had some alert canine company too!
This picture cracks me up. I can’t help but feeling that he looks like a loving, yet exasperated father.
And of course, these two are best buds. :)
The little man. When he smiles, he puts his WHOLE face into it!
There was lots of hair pulling during our time together. Philip couldn’t help himself, look at that curly head! Charlie was such a sport, but if you had seen the next two pictures in this series, you would see his tentative smile QUICKLY slide off his face. After all, a boy can only take so much.
I love how mesmerized Philip is by his big brother in the picture on the right. It’s like he’s thinking, “you’re the coolest thing EVER.”
And of course, when your little brother thinks you’re the coolest thing ever, it comes naturally that he will try to eat your hair. Gumming is the sincerest form of flattery.
Charlie thinks his little brother is pretty cool too.
And before I left, Charlie wanted to show me a couple more of his cool toys!
Thank you for letting me spend the afternoon with you! I enjoyed every moment!
