Black & White Wednesday - Perfect Timing

It's Black & White Wednesday again, a chance to showcase your favorite black & white photography. Check out Lisa's blog, The Long Road to China, for all the other great entries!

The past several black & white Wednesdays I have shared black & whites of more of a sentimental nature. This week, I thought I'd change it up a bit and share a photo that my husband took of Gavin, my seven-month-old, and me. Still sentimental, but in a much different way.

The following photo was taken this past Saturday.

It truly does capture a big characteristic of Gavin, one that's been evident since the day he was born.


Curious?


I call this photo...


'Perfect Timing'


Take a look...



Precious, right?!? Ha ha.

More like yuck or gross, as sister Chloe says.

Or, "Gavin threw up again," as brother Cooper would say.

But any way you put it, it's true...

Gavin spits up all the time. And I mean
all the time.

After he eats, while he eats, before he eats, all the time. Spit-up.

And I love that this photo captured that.

What was meant to be a tender photo between a mother and son, turned into an equally important moment captured.

Because as much as I think I won't forget the vast amount of spit-up Gavin has produced, my memory seems to get worse with every child. And since he's my fourth, the chances are good I could forget such a detail.

But now I won't.

Looking at this picture will bring it all back, and make me laugh.

As Gabe, my six {almost seven} year old said when he saw the picture, "Woah, that's totally wicked!" And then proceeded to laugh hysterically for a good five minutes.

Now that's a photo to remember ;)

That is just perfect timing! We do tend to forget these things so I guess this is his way of making sure you don't! Happy Wednesday!

That is great! my nephew was the same way and I tollay though of him one when I saw this picture. Jake had HORRIBLE acid reflux (worse than that acid level of an adult) I hope Gavin doesn't have the same issue. I hope you got at great one san the spit up.

Christine said...

That is a *great* shot!!! Oh man.

It reminds me about how my son only spit up once in his whole life... at the exact moment that his foster mother handed him over to my husband "for good." I guess it's just one more moment we'll always remember!

Gail said...
