Dinosaur Head


I love my nephew's latest hairstyle - the faux-hawk, I think he looks adorable and oh, so handsome.  My favorite part about it may be the name my niece has given it - the dinosaur head.


After a month with the little ones in the house I'm completely in love with them and am in awe of the way their minds work.  I can't help but wonder, when do we lose that special view of the world that kids have - where we can see the animals in the clouds or a dinosaur head in a hair style.  Can you imagine how much easier our creative efforts would be if we could get back to that child-like view of the world where all things are possible?

One of my favorite songs as a kid was The Rainbow Connection when I heard the Sarah McLachlan version a couple of years ago I fell in love all-over again.

How great that you get to be with your family so much right now. You are both lucky and brave!! :-) Cute kid!

Standardized testing and being taught to do things only the "right" way does a pretty good job helping kids lose that special view. Oops. Did I just get political?

Your nephew rocks. And so does that song, whether it's Sarah Maclachlan or Kermit.

Love that version of the song. She has such a beautiful voice.

Your nephew is a cutie patootie. Love his hair!

Ashley Sisk said...

Perhaps we should all quit our jobs and pretend to be kids instead. I like that idea!

Caroline said...

OK...his hair rocks! Fabulous!

tinajo said...

He´s really cute! :-)

Jess said...

Naw what a cutie!

Clare B said...

Great pictures Jamie - he's such a cute kid, his eyes are incredible!

Carolyn Phillips said...

What adorable photos.

When does it stop...being told at school that your art work is immature compared to your other subjects...after spending weeks of lessons drawing rubiks cubes...after being in English lessons that from then on we should only write fiction is specifically told to do so...after we start comparing ourselves to others...when other opinions begin to matter...

I love his hair and these are fantastic portraits, really lovely!

Krystal said...

that is some sweet hair :) I wish I could have the outlook of a kid again too - one where time doesn't really matter, you just have fun! thanks for your note while i was away, friend, excited to be back and catch up though!! (except, so sad my friends are gone :( )

Nicole said...

I must say, my kid has the most gorgeous eyes!! Love the pics, we need to hang them up somewhere!

Amanda said...

I was hoping that everything was going well with the family--how much longer are they staying with you? He is rocking the fauxhawk like nobody's business! Seriously adorable picture...

Jase sports the 'dinosaur head" at our house. Wouldn't the world be a better place if we never had to grow up? LIttle kids never cease to amaze me. I love their little innocent minds.

Ms. Becky said...

he's becoming a great subject for photographing. he doesn't seem to mind now at all. look at those eyes! great portraits Jamie. and the tune is perfect!

I think about this so often ("Can you imagine how much easier our creative efforts would be if we could get back to that child-like view of the world where all things are possible?")

Wouldn't that be amazing, even if just for one day?

He is just adorable Jamie, and I DO love the hair!

Anna said...

Cuteness and the dinosaur ridgeback hairdo are a wonderful combo! I love B&W - perfect.

I'm currently reading an interesting book about writing and tapping into a creative, childlike vision of the world - something that once came naturally for all of us.

urban muser said...

love his big brown eyes (oh, and his hair, of course).

Courtney said...

GREAT song! He has the sweetest face and LOVE the name his sister has given his new haircut. Too cute! Yes, to have that childlike innocence and imagination again would be simply fantastic!

Lesley said...

Love the haircut! He is a very handsome boy with those lovely dark eyes!
We learn so much from being with children - helps us to remember remember how childhood feels :)

Karen said...

He could NOT be any cuter! Love those eyes--and the haircut is adorable.

Diana Joy said...

He's so so cute....love the name your niece gave his hair style....yep we adults all need to be childlike (again) occasionaly. Your niece and nephew will never forget this special time with you...how lucky you all are. Hope your weekend is super.

Dorian Susan said...

Isn't it amazing how creative they are...and funny without meaning to be? Dinosaur head-does he like it?

Tammy Lee Bradley said...

I love love love The Rainbow Connection. I actually have the sheet music for my harp! I ♥ Kermit and his nephew Robin too.

Thank you so much for your kind words - I appreciate it! :-)

ELK said...

I am so happy that this time with your n & n is turning out well and bringing you even closer!! He looks so cute!!

krissilugbill said...

what a doll! and these shots are just so amazing, you photography just keeps improving!

Gilding Lilies said...

Such a cute dinosaur head! I completely agree with what you said. Along those same lines - I've often marveled at the extraordinary imagination I tap into in my dreams. Amazing stuff! So I know it's in me, but sometimes my waking thoughts seem so regular. I think all that creativity is still in us, but for some reason we've stifled it. But why?!

Anika said...

So cute!! I love that doo ;)

~Kristina said...

Love the hair, the innocence and that song.
