He is most definitely MY son

"Mothers are fonder, than fathers, of their children because they are more certain they are their own." ~Aristotle

Over the weekend, we noticed that a rainbow had formed in our neighborhood. Lola raced to find her boots convinced she was going to find a "magical treasure." She was speaking in tongues with anticipation of finding "magical treasures" of jewels and diamonds.

I threw on some boots and ran for my Nikon with anticipation of documenting the first rainbow of the season. Lola was already outside and Jay no where in sight. I joined Lola knowing that Jay would soon follow.

I was engrossed in taking pictures of Lola and Fifi that I barely noticed MY son. My son joined us outside ready to document his story. He had grabbed his camera and was completely engrossed. He is most definitely MY son.


Now I have to figure out where Lola came from. She most definitely was switched at birth. It is possible, isn't it?

Absolutely adorable, and the photos are awesome! Thanks for posting this! (BTW, I'm thinking Lola came from the same place your son did. Yep, that's what I'm thinking...) :-)

Chelsea said...

Lovely. And, from what I hear, Lola must be yours, as she is a mini Kash.

Lisa said...

Dang...I was almost first!
What sweet pictures....the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, huh? Can we arrange a marriage between Jay & my sweet Goosey??!?

Jeni said...

Loved the pictures of your kids -beautiful, they are! Today, with my youngest being 32 and the oldest being 41, I can say without a doubt that each one of my three has many traits just like their old Momma here. But when my youngest was growing up, there were times we used to tease her that perhaps they switched her at the hospital.

Jen said...

Oh she did not just pull mommy's daffodils out of the ground?!

Super photos!

LunaNik said...

Lola switched at birth?...Naaaa...

I betcha she's got a whole lot more of OhMommy in her than you'd care to admit ;)

Melissa said...

Holy cow, I want to be your neighbor and live in that white house!!

I love to see children taking pictures, sometimes they get the best ones!

Cheri said...

What beautiful children and photos of them.

Indy said...

Beautiful photos OHmommy. Now can you teach us to take such gorgeous photos?

Elizabeth...mommy...etc said...

way too cute!! more proof that children not only SEE everything but often they copy what they see.

Kristen said...

How cute are you with your little ones!

I love that he wants so much to be like his Mama. That says a lot about what a wonderful job you are doing with him.

And Lola, I think is too cute as well. She must belong to the OhMommy family. How else would she be so adorable?

andrea j said...

What a beautiful picture of the rainbow!!

Laura said...

That wonderful photos...I LOVE the top one...PERFECT!!!

Krystyn said...

That is so sweet! You must be proud!

Lola just has the more stiletto in her!

Karen said...

I love how he's documenting everything, not just the rainbow. He is your son.

Stella said...

It's the recessive genes.....
Those are adorable pictures! I love how he is so concentrated on taking pictures!!

This Southern Belle said...

Love the quote and the pics!

Beth from the Funny Farm said...

It has been known to happen.. but highly unlikely! :-)

Irene said...

How sweet! The rainbow picture is absolutely adorable!!!!!

My 2 yo is always pretending to take pictures. And when she is outside playing she keeps asking "where is your camera?" I guess my kids are very aware of my new obsession...

amanda said...

you truly couldn't find anything cuter at the end of a rainbow!!

sooo sweet :)

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

It's absolutely possible. Otherwise, I have to say that I am my parent's child, and I'm not. ;-)

CC said...

What an awesome legacy you are bringing up! And gorgeous rainbow!

Kimmylyn said...

Why did this make me all teary eyed? I know.. because kids lead by example and look at Jay becoming a little man with grown up interests..

I love the first picture.. that is just priceless.

MommyTime said...

I love this post. You should put up some of his pictures too. That would be fun to see.

Stephanie said...

How sweet! My oldest (2 year old) grabbed her fake tinkerbell camera yesterday when she saw my youngest standing on her bed. "Hold on, Chicken, I need to take your picture!" And she held it up and pretended. She most definitely mine AND hubby's!

just jamie said...

I dunno ... he's looking an awful lot like MY son too right now. :)

So lovely. Perfect shots. Can we see some of his pictures too?

LceeL said...

It would be interesting to see his pictures - to see if his 'eye' is as good as Ohmommy's.

Blessings From Above said...

So cute!!! Yes, Jay certainly seems to take after you...not just with photography, but a little in the sensitivity department as well.

And Lola...God help you when she is a teenager! :)

Hey it's Amy Shipp said...

That is so sweet! Love the rainbow and the flowers. Awesome!! :D

the MomBabe said...

Whatever. I'm betting Lola is all you. Just wait, you'll see.

Kash said...

SO cute! Maybe he will be a journalist, or a reporter or a photographer. He definetly loves following in your footsteps.

And Lola can walk in mine. :)

Kash said...

You should put Jay's pictures up with the comments he makes...

April said...

I can't get over his precious boots!

Lisa said...

What a pretty picture! I can already see mommy and son setting off to photo conventions :)

Kimber said...

So cute... My Harry is a shutterbug just like Mom. I even let him take some with my Nikon once in blue moon although it makes me a nervous wreck. He gets good shots though. Jay and Lola are both cute pies! As is Fifi:) You need to pst Jay's work.

Melisa said...

it is wonderful to pass along such great interest in photograhy. who knows...next he'll be bloggin'! LOL!

greyst said...

That's totally cute that he loves taking photos just like you! How adorable. And don't think I didn't notice that he had his boots on too!

greyst said...

OH - Great photos btw! :)

Tracey said...

Nice pictures! I was just catching up with your posts below and was cracking up over the "pretty blood" post. Reminded me of when I tell Corinne (2 yr) that the bugs are SO CUTE! Such tiny little wings, etc. Flipped her perspective immediately, and now she loves them.

Miss said...

What a sweetie! Time to start sharing his pics!!

Lacy Rose said...

I am lovin' the rainboots!

beth said...

Adorable. My daughter is the same way. She thinks taking pictures is my job (it is not) and she likes to work like mommy.

Her pictures are often out of focus and at crazy angles, but to me they capture her view of the world.

Katie said...

Too cute!!

Tara R. said...

They are so incredible cute! I love the blue galoshes, and the pink raincoat... fabulous. Nice capture on the rainbow too.

Kathryn said...

That is too cute. He is learning well.
Love your pics!

anglophilefootballfanatic said...

She picked the flowers? UGH I love him taking the pictures. How sweet.

HRH said...

So cute...so true.

the dragonfly said...

So cute! I love that he was taking pictures. :)

Petula Wright said...

Very beautiful shots. Your son was really engrossed... how wonderful!

Nap Warden said...

Wow...great pics! I love the rainbow:)

Rachel said...

Those are darlin' pictures! I love the 'speaking in tongues' part. You have such a great writing style. The pictures are fabulous, too. Both of my kids are becoming camera obsessed and I think it's adorable :-) But definitely following after mommy :-)

Mommy Cracked said...

Wow, now THAT'S a rainbow! Great pics and cute kids!

Rhea said...

Love the quote up top.

I haven't seen a rainbow in a while!

I think I've passed the photo bug onto my sons as well...just recently they keep running off with my camera and I find all kinds of ...amazing...or, um, interesting...god, help us, awful photos on my camera!

cyndy said...

Oh how cute!

The Immoral Matriarch said...

It's very possible. I think that sometimes about my own...

tricki_nicki said...

What little cuties you have there.

Happy Days said...

I love those pictures! Love the boots too!

Joeprah said...

Very cool! We saw a huge rainbow today, incidentally. It was inspiring. All three of my girls, my wife and I just took it in. It was really kinda magical. Your picture reminded me of that moment. I love the boots and that precious little girl picking the flowers. Very cute kids.

Eve Grey said...

yikes, that quote at the top is sort-of severe!
I love the photo of your son taking a photo of the rainbow.

Wendi said...

This post is too cute.
Cute pictures.
Cute kids.

* Please share Jay's photography work soon!

Cassey said...

You should get your little one up with a blog and he'd be all set to go.

carrie said...

Yes, he is.

That is a priceless photo. I love the boots!

Beth said...

I love these pictures! You should post the pictures that your son was taking while you were taking these.

LaskiGal said...

Oh, Lola is totally yours! These are great pics! Isn't it the coolest thing to see how you rub off on them?

renatamic said...

i think that jay is you NOW and lola cuold be you the teenager?? scary thought, but i think with the havoc you reaked, it might be true:-) great pics!!

Stacey @Real World Mom said...

How incredibly COOL is that?! Love it!!

WordyGirl said...

SO COOL when you see your kids picking up your hobbies, isn't it? But sorry, sweetie, Lola is definitely yours ;-) I can see her dramatic and "classy" side coming out in your posts!

Valarie said...

So cute! And your son was taking pictures that had the potential to actually turn out. When my daughter gets ahold of the camera, I end up with 20 picture of my butt and 1 of her stuffed dog, Puffy.

Jennifer said...

Great pics. Beautiful rainbow and even MORE beautiful children!! :) My son is wild with the camera too! Much like his mamma, I'm pleased to say!! :) He is 4 so the pics come out a little bit funky sometimes but not too shabby most times. And some of them are just amazing.
I see that your son doesn't have a "child-like" camera. We had the Fisher Price camera for my son, paid over a hundered for it and a case last year at Christmas and in MHO it sucks!! :(
I just gave him my old digital elf and he LOVES it... and he does good with it. The pics are actually descent from it too, the FP one the pics were very blurry and grainy... so NOT worth the money!!

Anyway... now that I have rambled on and on... great post!!

Hugs, Jenn

Kendra said...

What beautiful children.

Cecily R said...

Oh I love him!!

He rocks those boots too!!

Kellan said...

What great photos of your precious children and that beautiful rainbow - WOW!

Take care - Kellan

Angie said...

Watching them mimic us is the truest form of compliment (or insult depending on what they imitate)

KEEP BELIEVING

Karen MEG said...

Now isn't that the cutest, with his camera, zooming in for a close-up and everything ;).

Those boots are the sweetest too, I don't know what it is about springtime and kids in rubber boots!

Great shots as usual!!

Flea said...

I don't think I've ever seen such a low lying rainbow. Very cool! And I love that your son is snapping photos while your daughter mutilates the flowers. :)

Victoria said...

Those are adorable!!

Motherhood for Dummies said...

super cute! Someone is following in Mommy's footsteps :)

Grandy said...

Oh...your son indeed!!

I have an award for you over at my site, my mighty classy lady.

Stephanie said...

What an incredible feeling... I cannot wait!

imbeingheldhostage said...

Adorable! Another photo blog will be arriving soon...

Half-Past Kissin' Time said...

Beautiful. Ya gotta love a guy who can stop to smell the roses (without some woman forcing him into it). Sweet.
