"I love my blankie"
My son has Ptosis, due to trauma during his birth.... if you do not know what Ptosis is, you can read about it "here". One of my favourite movie stars, Forest Whitaker has Ptosis, and each time I see him in action in a movie or series, I smile, as it reminds me so much of my son... I am so self-conscious of taking photographs of him when his eye appears 'worse' (which is in sunlit conditions, and when he is tired). Ptosis is part of him and I am by no means trying to 'hide' this aspect of him, as to me it just adds character. My photo-taking-sessions more often than not consist of 100's of photographs being taken, just to get one shot I like.... NOT because of his eye, but because he is a 'bucket of worms' LOL!!! Each time I attempt to take a photograph, I can guarantee you he will turn his head, or worse still, pick his nose...
So, I just wanted to share a special part of my life...my son, Jesse...with photos taken over the holiday period...
"I love my Twisties"
"On the beach this-morning"
"I wore Mum out blowing bubbles, so she purchased a battery operated bubble blower"
"Ohhh Arrhhh, Mum and Dad brought me a play gym for Christmas, and I love it"
"and, this is Ms Malinki - who I love to bits, and we are so close and have an uncanny, natural infinity with each other - even get into mischief together"
