I Heart Faces Photo Contest

September 20, 2010

Wellllll . . . . . I haven’t entered an I Heart Faces Photo Contest in foreverrrrrr!  It’s been a challenging year that’s for sure, but we know the light is at the end of the tunnel . . . . somewhere. LOL

The theme for this week’s contest is “Smirk” and I immediately knew which picture I wanted to enter.  I was talking to my Mom on the telephone and he wanted to say “Hi.” He does great saying his hellos, but then he starts pushing buttons and eventually hanging up on her – doesn’t make for a great two way conversation. :)  I had to finally tell her my goodbyes because he was SO upset.  We were sitting on the floor, he was scu-reammmmiinnggg, so I did what anyone would do to get him to be quiet . . I handed him the telephone.  He gently held it up to his ear and started talking while tears still filled his eyes and streamed down his cheeks. He would alternate between talking and pushing buttons.  I had my camera on the table, so I reached up, grabbed it, and started snapping pictures when he turned to me and gave me the biggest smirk I’ve ever seen.  I can just hearing him saying “Yep, I got what I wanted.” LOL  Little stinker.  It’s a good thing he’s cute. ;)
