black and white Wednesday ~ portrait of Will

I have to apologize because I've been kind of a slacker as far as posting on my blog.
Life gets in the way sometimes. And life right now is my family and children and I'm enjoying them very much. I haven't had much time to read blogs either but will try and do better as my time permits.

Will turned 4 on Christmas day and though I have many pictures of him from the last few months, I've been wanting to get one to use as a portrait to celebrate his 4th year. About 10 days ago he and I had one of our Fridays together and spent part of it at our local botanical gardens. Will was in a great mood and I captured this one of him...he has beautiful eyes and you can see so much of who he is in them. My favorite 4 year old has been my little buddy lately as I've been out working in the yard, getting flower beds ready for planting. Will tells me all about what he knows about flowers and plants, how they grow and he's especially interested in bugs. He helps me pull weeds and dig(that's his favorite part). I may have a little gardener (like his mommy) in the future!

Please go on over to Lisa's blog, here and see many more black and whites. And have a great Wednesday!

What a magnificent picture of your sweet Will! I am so glad you have a son just like him! He is so special! It comes thru in every image : )

Don't ever worry about posting on your blog! You are so right! Life is way more important! One thing I do love about the blog is that it helps me remember things I would totally forget otherwise! : )

Happy Wednesday!

Mr. Will has the most infectious grin I have ever seen. Gorgeous portrait, Gail! I know what you mean about slacking on blogging. I am there, too. Just not as motivated as usual. FB is so much easier, however, Paige won't be able to look back on FB and read about her childhood. Must.do.better.about.blogging!!!

What a handsome little man Will is. I see what you're saying about his eyes. They do seem so insightful. Love it!

Don't worry about being a blog slacker. Spending time with family is much more important, you are right! Loved your post, as always. Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!

Hey fellow gardener - I haven't had too many moments in my garden yet but I enjoyed your word picture of your latest adventures. How fun that Will enjoys it too. It's something I wish for Dahlia. Maybe Milana - we'll see.

Will is such a beautiful boy - his eyes are mesmerizing.

Have fun in your yard. I look forward to seeing the fruits of your labor here.

Love this shot.
He reminds me of my very own WonderBoy a mere 7 years ago...when he was 4...how I loved my 4 year old boy, and 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11...

Enjoy every minute...but then, I know you do.
