Paparazzi

One of Henry's newly discovered distractions is my camera. He's very interested in all things mechanical. Often when we're driving the car, he'll ask detailed questions about 'what button' we're pushing or how we make the car slow down. So the camera was no different. We've already had to charge the battery once and as we speak I'm downloading approximately 200 pictures of his taking. He specifically tried to get pictures of the TV, the wall, the ceiling and the IV pole. He also had his stint trying to photograph people, Tara and I were his main targets, but the nurse didn't escape either. I was the subject of one series which, when looked at continuously on the camera screen, appeared as a poor quality movie they were so quickly taken. My son the paparazzi.

First some pictures of Henry:



Here are a few of his selections:


His Favorite Blankie from Grandma.


Mommy and Daddy

Bryan,

Those are great pictures! My nephew Ryan, he's 4, (older sister Kate's son) is the same way. Whenever Errin (his dad my brother in law) is taking pictures Ryan wants to be right there helping and doing most of the work!

I hope the camera offers Henry a nice distraction to everything else.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

Bryan/Tara, just wanted to say that for everything that little man has been through, he looks great. I also wanted to comment on your attitude and outlook. I am sure the writing gives you some sort of release. However, I want you to know(and I am sure I speak for a lot of others) that it also inspires your support group. I am thankful for your words and Henry's pictures. God Bless. Roger
