When we did their ADOPTION PORTRAITS last fall, he still looked like such a baby. Well, just seven months later, he's sure looking like a little boy. He gained 6 & 1/2 lbs, grown 4 inches and added 8 teeth! Hello, protein and a good diet and a lot of care. He's signing and tracking right along but has the same sunny, magnetic smile that he did as a wee little one. Isaac and his mama are in love and it's a sweet, sweet thing to see! He rubs her face, hugs and kisses and she showers him with affection and also knows how to give him the look when he monkeys around too much. For my day of spring mini sessions, they were my first ones. However, Isaac had been up already since 4:30 and was ready for a nap. Desiree brought her bag of toys and snacks and kept on playing with him and cuddling him so we could get some great shots of them together.
This one makes me laugh. Isaac was not keen on the whole sit-on-the-bench idea and about two seconds later darted down the path. When Desiree swooped him up, he laughed a crazy, "I won!" laugh which cracked us up.
No where to run, no where to hide. Sorry, bud!
Isaac has been practicing his smooching since we last photographed him and knows how to lay one back on his mama, especially when goldfish snacks are involved ;).
What a blessing to see this precious boy thriving under the care and love of his mother, who's always had him in his heart. Also, I love that she's going to send some of these pictures to his foster mom in China, who truly cared for him too. It's been an amazing thing to see God's hand on them and their family.
