Day 71 -- Freckles

The first time I saw Connor's freckles - I got silly happy :) I don't know why - but I just loved seeing them. Okay - I do kind of know why. My poor little blond headed, blue eyed angel was pale. I mean pasty-white pale, lol. And being a paranoid first time mother (who knows what crappy, pale skin does in the sun) I kept his skin lathered with THICK sun screen for the first couple years of this kids life :)

The photo doesn't really do his first face freckles justice. It's a 35mm photo (you know the stuff. It's called film. We used to use it for all our photos, lol). Anyhoo -- He had gotten a pretty harsh sun burn on his poor face (there were deceptive clouds out - letting through the stuff that burns you, but not letting through the bright, sunny rays.) But underneath that redness was a hint of the freckles that would soon darken as he was in the sun a little more :)

As he got older - they stood out more. And they even started staying on his face longer (they used to disappear a few hours after he left the sun. It was frustrating, lol). This photo was pretty much when he got his face freckles - and they never really left. All through the winter - they stayed!!! :)

Which brings us to today's photo!! I didn't really take it for the freckles exactly. I was just having fun in the sun with the boys :) And the photo doesn't really highlight the freckles very well (the full size version shows them off better). But I still LOVE the photo and its hint of freckles :D

And that is all for today! Thank you for taking a trip down memory lane with me to remember my son's beautiful freckles :D See you tomorrow!! XOXO :D
