I dug this photo out from April. It was okay but then when I started editing, it quickly became one of my very favorites of him. That smirk. His man-tank. The ear buds. His papa's eyes reincarnated right there on his face. It's so him right now.
It's part of his birthday present. To not have to sit for birthday pics on his birthday. Because when you're 15, sitting for photos with your mom is only one step up from being a high school freshman and waiting everyday at the carpool lane for your mom to pick you up in the really banged-up crappy family car.
At least you don't have to sit for photos this year.
Happy birthday young man. You are AMAZING!
