Let the sunshine in...

I love these two pictures that I snapped the other morning...the sun just hit our office nook in that beautiful moody way that only a grey fall morning in North Carolina can...they're intended to show off the sweater-sleeve pants that I made, but really they show off a new side of Gus that has just started to shine through - his observant, mildly bemused side - an expression tht is a hallmark of his Dad, who is a great quiet observer...more and more often I catch Gus just sitting or standing there looking at me as I prattle on about this or that...and my breath catches because he so much reminds me of Jacob...it's like seeing double...though he isn't just a copy of his Dad, I see his Dad reinterpreted in him...the same is probably true for how he is partly me, but I would have a harder time seeing that...

He is such a wonderful, inquisitive child, always ready to love and laugh...I continue to learn from him.

...oh and he is working on the use and meaning of his first two words...I'm proud to say that one is English and the other German, "hot" and "heiss" they are used to keep him from touching our wood-burning stove...but they also work for all things bright and lights...

He is a warm ray of sunshine to me. Every day. Regardless of what the weather holds in store outside.

Those are wonderful pictures...I love the light, and I love those pants! I may have to pay you to make a pair for Flynn, since I don't have sewing machine capabilities.

What a beautiful portrait of the man Gus is going to become.
