Nathan's new favourite pastime is posing for pictures.
It goes down like this:
Nathan comes to me and says, "Mom, take a picture of me!"
I grab the camera and wait for him to smile and say, "Cheese."
He does so, and then hurries over to look at the camera screen to see the picture show up.
Then he runs back in front of the camera and strikes some crazy pose he thinks up in the moment. Usually it is something totally random and half the time he's purposely not looking directly at the camera and / or not smiling.
He holds this pose until I take the picture.
Then he comes over for another look. Sometimes he'll say something like, "Cool" when he sees what it turns out like.
Then he'll do it all over again.
One of the funny things about this is that he does not get tired of posing. We only stop when I distract him with another activity.
I am the kind of person who much prefers to be behind the camera. I'm pretty sure he gets this trait from his Aunt Jordana.
Here's a small sampling of his photo shoot on New Year's Eve. (What makes these even more funny is Nathan's dirty face.)
