As you probably know, the photography genes run through 2/3 of the Trotz boys – my brother Jerry is a fine photographer, and currently makes his living shooting in Savannah. On our visit in mid-November, he dragged out his spiffy new lights and got down to some great photos of our clan. I think a bunch of these are awesome. There is something about a formal portrait that’s so different from the grabs we normally get. I like a lot of the feeling here.
So I know you all are clamoring for more of cute guy #2 around here – so I’m obliging you all with the second Noah update in only a matter of days. The last few weeks we have finally ‘gone solid’ – well, if you can call solids mashed sweet potatoes, peas, carrots and other pablum. But after an initially reluctant start (his first feeding is captured above and in this slide show) he has taken to it like a champ. All you parents out there know that this means changes on the other end as well (uggh), but it’s a necessary step.
Speaking of steps, I also wanted to include some photos of Noah hanging out in his exersaucer. He *loves* that thing, and it lets him get his ya-yas out – he’s such a bouncer it’s crazy. There was this lovely light coming into the house late one afternoon, and I just love these photos – the image above is my favorite photo of Noah to date. Full slide show is here.
Finally, there is this photo I shot while testing my new camera (more on that separately). I swear it looks like Noah is delivering Shakespeare in this image. This, by the way, is his new pose – he hasn’t quite handled sitting up, rather he has adopted this ever-so-casual ‘Joe Namath lean’ as we’ve come to call it. Cuteness personified, I tell ya!
