A flash and a wink

Like all snap-happy mothers, the digital camera is never far from grasp ‘just in case’ J does something cute.

Take lunch time. He was chewing on his food and he was all giggly and smiley, I had to grab the camera.

He only needs to see the camera now and he’ll start posing. The problem is when he looks down the barrel, the flash sends his ‘blinking eye’ into overdrive. And every time I think I’ve got the perfect shot, there it is the cheeky grin and wink combo. So we try again.

And again. And again. Until I get at least one, non-winking one…

Flicking through the images on the camera screen, I see that I’ve kept quite alot of the winking photos as well. Why do I do it? Afterall if someone blinks in a photo, you delete it, right? And really that’s all J is doing, just that he blinks with one eye only.

After reviewing some of the ‘winky’ photos, I think I keep them because they’re just too damn cute to delete. There’s something about J’s smile and wink combo that’s so endearingly him, that I can’t bring myself to pretend those photos were never taken. At the very least they’ll be great to pull out at his 21st party!

So, here they are a selection of my favourite ‘winky’ moments.
