Evolution of a Subject

I asked my Stalker what she thought of the photo I posted last week of the male twin.
You know, this one. 
She's my proof reader, editor, ombudsman, and muse. So I ask.

She said she did, by the way, but she wasn't too sure about the expression on his face. 
What did it mean?
I can tell you what it means. It means the same thing each and every time I bring out the camera.
That stare is cold, hard calculation.

And it quickly proceeds to deeper thought and contemplation while taking in extra fuel. In this case, fresh cheese curds from the market. Oh, how we love the market.
Fuel is very important for the plans hatching inside that pretty little head.
Because now it's time to bring on the..
cheesy grin.
Tell me you saw that one coming?

 But it doesn't end there; oh no, that's just first gear.
 I have no idea where he learned to roll his eyes like that.
None.what.so.evah.dahlink.
This is my life.
And I wouldn't change it ...
....for all the world.


 ~Happy Friday Friends!~

I just love him! If you need to farm him out for a while, send him our way!He can eat whatever he wants, do whatever he wants...well you get the idea! I do fear he may return to with a little attitude! But, hey, that is what Aunties are for.
Spoiling children!

AHHAHAA!! Oh Andrea, the smile on my face right now is HUGE! What a character! I can't remember what I said about his expression in the first post, but I think it was something along the lines of reflection or love or something. I LOVE that it was actually "cold hard calculation"!! AHA!! Funny!!! Loved this post. Loved it.
