"That's wonderful. Good for you! I've always wanted to have a haunted house. It's been a lifelong dream!"
pose son, pose!
Caleb, you're ONE! This year has been so fulfilling seeing you grow into a strong and smart young boy. At one, you have eight teeth, love bananas, spaghetti (anything tomato based), veggie/fruit pouches, dried yogurt bites, Nutri-grain bars and bites of sweets. You're a climber and days away from walking and chasing sister around! A true mama's boy with style.
I wanted to do a special theme for your birthday shoot and thought of My Neighbor Totoro since you have probably watched it about 100x already. =) Your sister Emerald was introduced to Totoro by Aunt Brittany when she was young and has loved it ever since. It's a Japanese animated fantasy film. Of course, Emerald had to assign characters to each of us. Dad is the big Gray Totoro, Emerald is the blue Totoro, Caleb is the white Totoro and Mom is Catbus!
Happy viewing & check out the film if you haven't already!
