We have this baby, and he is a delight. As for myself I don't think I draw him nearly as much or as often as he deserves, but the time had finally come to immortalize him at this stage in the way that only a digital portrait can. So here it is, The Boy, happy as can be, at approximately 8 months:
And now, a word from the mother of this child:
I must confess that I also do not draw this baby as much as I should. Of course there are lots of things I think I should ("should") be doing, but this is one thing I REALLY think I should do more. As for cleaning the baseboards, well, I'll let those wait. Anyway, I recently colored up a little doodle from a while ago. Sometimes when he is asleep he lays on the boppy pillow like this, with his legs scrunched up and his bum out and his hands by his face. It's one of my very, very favorite things that he does, and it will be a sad day when he grows out of it. Baby proportions are still a tricky business, but I like how this one turned out.
But at least now I've made record of it! Also, I love these jammies. Claws on the toes?? Come on.
