Little man answered the door in his big boy way and said, "Hi," with a wave. He had me right that minute.
Sweet. Chatty. Friendly. Calvin.

He has this oh-so-serious look when he's thinking - or listening to his Mama talk. It looks something like this:
Are you smitten? I am.
About 5 minutes into my visit with him, he was telling me his whole name... "Calvin ____ _____, from Cincinnati Ohio." And then he told me his Mommy's name. And his Daddy's. I wanted to squeeze him.
Next up, my new little friend recited the entire Dr. Seuss foot book - "wet foot, dry foot, low foot, high foot..." as we turned the pages. He knows all the words. Mmmm hmmmm.
Here's a glimpe of him with his favorite foot book...
I'm a sucker for all things little boy - the way they love their Mamas, the way they are just laid back and easy going (usually), the way they make their car/bus/airplane noises, the way they... I could go on and on. Check him out - flying his helicopter. I know you can hear him.
The session was over - and then he busted out the thumb. You know I got my camera right back on out. Lickity split. I had to.
Calvin and Mommy and Daddy - it was absolutely my pleasure. I loved every minute.
