Show Day--

Although my camera has a child portrait mode which is supposed to soften the features of our little angels and make them all glow-ey, the one way to shoot JJ is in sports mode. I just click away and hope for the best.
Yesterday was "show day" at Little Gym which is a chance for loved ones to come watch their aspiring gymnists perform all the tricks they have learned. Last time we brought a houseful (grandma, grandpa, dad, and aunt Julie), this time, we just brought dad.

JJ loved having his dad there and showed off in kind.


You can see his "tricks" include the balance beam (while holding our hands) jumping off the mat onto the smaller mat, and being in the center of any circle the moms create. He must think he belongs there. He LOVES the parachute.
I am only sad that I didn't get a picture of him hanging, that is his favorite.

Aww! I love the pics. JJ has grown up so much.

When we brought Ammon to Porter's gym, he just showed off in a misbehaving kind of way, what a rebel.

JJ is quite the showman--most comfortable in a circle of adoring fans.

what person thought up the child portrait mode...? The only way that would work is while they are sleeping.
JJ looks so tall in that last picture!
