These were taken in April of this year. I was making what looks like a 4-loaf batch of sweet potato bread (you can see little bits of orange in the dough - that's sweet potato) and I think I remember just wanting to take pictures of Alex at work. Sometimes it seems like Julia's the one always helping out in the kitchen, or hamming it up in front of the camera, so I wanted to give him equal time.
It's funny, looking at these pictures, I'm thinking, boy, he looks younger. I mean, he IS about half a year younger than he is now, but also his hair is longer...and the really big difference is the color. He's got winter hair in these pictures. But right now, in the present day, his short hair is much lighter, bleached out by the summer sun.
Anyway, no more words are necessary. Here's my boy.
