Playing on Poppop's Tractor

It's hard to get good pictures of my boy these days. He runs away from the camera, tells me, "no!" and has lost that baby oblivion to the camera. But if he can be distracted, by something as enthralling as his Poppop's tractor, I can snap away and catch my boy at play.

Love that last one! He is going to be quite the looker when he's older. Get out the girl beating stick now, mom! haha. Wonderful photos!

Aw... he's such a cutie. It's so hard for me when they start to say "no" to the camera - on one hand, I HATE, hate, hate to have my picture taken, so I have to respect it. But on the other, I'm just itching to sneak in a few shots.

Those are all wonderful. I think my favorite is the second down. I'm a sucker for close up shots. Happy Labor Day.

I love those - he looks like he was having such a great time! And I agree - I love that close up! Great shots!

I love the action shots, but I'd have to say #3 is my favorite. Such a great closeup! Wonderful capture of boyhood here.

Looks like he's ready to take over the driving of the tractor!

Wonderful photos. I love the one where he is standing up.

My son is in a picutre refusal stage so most of my photos lately have only been of my daughter!! :( Hopefully he changes his mind soon.

Man, those are all great! I love the one where he is "checking" out the engine. So boy...

Mommy Daisy said...

Wow, those are great pictures of Jack. Tractors must be a boy thing for sure. My son is just 18 months, and he's that interested in them too. :D

Actions shots always beat the smile-click-be-done-with-it photos, if you ask me.


Enjoy the week.

Give a boy (man) a piece of equipment and you've captivated him. These shots are fantastic...I tend to identify well with boy-machine photos. He is so handsome.

What a great distraction for a boy! I bet he was talking about this all day long. Great shots!

How adorable is he...and that one where he's "checking out" the motor is just priceless.
