The 52 Week Project – A portrait of my son, once a week, for one year.

49/52 — A shot that I grabbed after Roman had his picture taken with Santa. He was so very excited to see that jolly, old, fat man. So excited that when I put him down, he ran full steam ahead right for Santa, only to lose his footing and trip face-first toward the ground. Gratefully his little reflexes were on point and he broke the fall with his hands. He cried for a minute — a mixture of excitement & shock, I’m sure — and then he was ready to get on Santa’s lap.

It was difficult for the photographer (not me) to capture a photograph of him this year because he did not want to look away from Santa & toward the camera for even a moment. Very sweet, indeed. I’m not sure what he was looking at so excitedly in this particular shot. It was after Santa had left the building, so most likely it was one of his cousins who had joined us for pictures that morning.

You can also see his new haircut here which I’m obsessed with. Short on the sides and long on top — it’s very 1950’s and I think he looks so handsome. I just kiss those cheeks all day — nothing new there.
