Essence of Now: Tommy

Tommy is my comedy relief. He is the “do anything for a laugh” kid. He adores Gia but in a way that makes her go “Tasmanian Devil” on him. They build Lego towers together and she loves him until he pokes at her one time too many. He thinks he’s being brotherly and funny but she needs a little more space than he’s willing to give. He is also the serious kid on the field. He means business and loves football with all that he is. It’s hard to believe he is the same kid. These pictures capture me enjoying Tommy in his essence of now…in who he is at this very moment. The goofball…


The playful brother…

And the football player…

What about you? Do you have a kid that has completely opposite sides to his/her personality? Are you like that?

  1. Both of my girls have those aspects to their personality, and I suppose if I was being really honest, so do I! This is a great post, because his personality really comes through in your pictures and your words! :)

  5. Oh, I love your photos!! He is adorable! It’s wonderful that he can be an attentive brother and make people laugh, yet be all business on the field. That will serve him so well in life! -Lisa

  6. {Melinda} Reminds me a lot of my son, AnnMarie! He’s very intense, doesn’t always know when to stop, but is also the sweetest, most loving kid. He’s almost 13 and I still get lots of hugs and “I love yous.” Hope that never stops. :)
