Leon in His "Pretty Boy Clothes" (according to Poppa:)

Shelbi's Senior class met up at a local antebellum home last night to take prom pictures. (That post is coming soon as I get them edited. I promise. :)
Anyway, I've been dying to take some of the Leon at one of these homes so after I took Shelbi's pictures we changed Leon into an old outfit that belonged to my brother, Leon's Great-Uncle Ras. Ras wore this outfit for Easter when he was a year and a half. He's now 29 years old. (A very young great-uncle.:)
At first Leon wasn't too sure about the outfit or standing in clover. :)

He quickly overcame the reluctance.

Poppa let him stand on the bench. That made him happy.
This is his delighted squeal. Silly boy!

Sweet, sweet smile. Awww.

Then he posed himself. :)

I LOVE this picture!
And this one, too!

An eyelash profile shot, just for Mrs. Jami! ;)

Poor tired, hungry boy had had enough. So, we headed home.

That concluded this photo shoot. :)

He must have been already starting to feel badly. He took a milk bottle and passed out before 7 PM. He didn't wake up until 5:15 or so this morning and had a temp of 101.9. He was pitiful. I gave him a couple of doses of Tylenol before he left. Then his Aunt Mallory and Uncle Daniel drove him home to his mom. I'd had him since Sunday afternoon for my Spring Break. He was supposed to go home today anyway and I'm sure he was glad to see his Mommy. Hope he's feeling better soon.


  1. Wow you got some really good shots! The one where his eyes are kinda cut to the side and his mouth is open reminds me of some of your baby pictures. Beautiful day for pictures!

  2. Love that outfit, needless to say I big on cute boy clothes. Most boy clothes are just so ugly. Adorable pics!

  3. Thanks, Cristi and Em! Emily, it's funny you like his outfit--- Mallory hated it and Shelbi refused to take a picture with him dressed in it. LOL

  4. I was just scanning through the images and thinking love that one with the eyelashes and then I read "it was for me!" Yay! Makes me feel special!

    By the way, I love "pretty boy clothes"! Never really called them that though...I will remember the name, but boys have to grow into "little men clothes too quickly" whereas girls get to look like baby/little girls much longer. Cameron won't like it, but if he ever has a son. He will be wearing "pretty boy clothes" for major holidays and portraits. At least until he is two or three. I just tried to keep them in them too long...he was teased for his smocked Easter Bunny outfit for the pre-school Easter Progrma. The teacher's loved it, but his peers totally DID NOT!

  5. I love the outfit and its so special. Pictures are great too! Hope he is feeling better!
