I learned something about myself recently. I'm a bit nostalgic. And when I say "a bit", I mean a lot. It turns out that other people are this way too. We longingly remember the past. We get a bit homesick sometimes and we remember things as if they were just yesterday, but in this wistful type of way. We are sappy, daydreamers who long for this happiness we felt in the past. One of my most nostalgic memories from when I was a kid, was bath time with my sisters and cousins. Now, we didn't all fit in one tub, but we lived in a small duplex and our bathtubs were situated on either sides of the wall that separated our duplex. My family on one side, my cousins on the other. So naturally we would talk, sing and laugh through the walls during bath time and this will always be one of my fondest memories of childhood. So when I had the opportunity to watch my nephew (who is also my sweet and handsome Godson) for the weekend, I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to photograph him with my son during bath time and to create some new memories for us all.
That smile of his is too much. This is pure delight right here in this moment! :-)
And those lashes of his, with the look of awe and wonder at the simple pleasures of water and cups. Oh and soldiers too!
They will always be the greatest of friends, at least that's my hope for them. It's how I feel about my cousins whom I miss dearly and wish I got to see more often.
