A couple of notes about this photo. This is truly one I believe we will look back on in 20 years and immediately get taken aback to the day. It was shot on a snowy Chicago morning just days before Christmas. I was working from home and took a break to go out and shovel, when we decided to take an extended break and have a snow date. The result here is probably the first photo in Conor’s 14+ months of life where both of the boys sat still and genuinely smiled at the same time.
Moments after this was taken, Kayce grabbed a wad of snow and winged it at Dawn, then yelled “Snowball!!”. Which writing it does not sound extraordinary, but the fact that we had never taught him how to make or even what a snowball was astounded Dawn and I. Truly something he “picked up along the way”.
It’s days like this I wish I could get stuck on rewind, forever.
