all dressed up - little brown dude.

i'm switching things up a tad this week.
all i'm gonna say is,
prepare to be mega jealous of me.
if you like dressing up,
go here to find out how to play.

so.
i have this teeny weeny guy.
his name is jere'miah'.
and he's pretty much 6 today.
(march 2)
so instead of taking pictures of myself
(all ugly, vain and vapid like as anonymous tells me i am *ahem*)
i decided to give my miah all the attention.
i mean,
it IS his day.


let me just say this.
i learned something about my sweet miah during this shoot.
he is 100% GQ quality.
i mean i knew he was handsome.
irresistible.
funny.
charming.
flirty.
and stylish.

but this kid has got it goin on.
and he knows it.
when the camera is on him,
he WORKS it.

i mean seriously.
those paisley shaped smiley eyes?
are you freaking kidding me?
you can't get more adorable than that.



last night just so happened to be
his classroom's open house.
so i snapped a shot of the star student board we made.
it sums up miah to a 'T'.

well.
except for the bona fide gangsta part.
we forgot to include that.



he's not only incredibly good looking.
(zoolander)
but he's also quite agile too.
everyone likes an agile kid.
i think.



i'm for real people.
all this posing?
straight model face with pouty lips?
miah.
he did it all.
i barely had to coach him.




hair: 3-4 different products to achieve perfected faux hawkness.
checkered button up: hand me down - gymboree
green sweater vest: hand me down.
jeans: mossimo - target.
shoes: converse target.
yummy brown skin: cannot be bought. delicious to the taste.



happy 6th birthday my sweet boy.
you were hand picked to be in our family
by your Heavenly Father.
thank. you.
for making me such a lucky mom.

to read miah's adoption story,

I have dreams of being his Aunt By Marriage, no kidding. CRAP. I could have a kid and he could like younger women when he is older and then we could be mother in law's to each other's children!

It's a plan.

AND he is so good lookin I wish I was younger. ; )

Happy bday Miah, you sweet sweet boy who I just want to cuddle

Mama Mia said...

Happy birthday sweet Miah! What an adorable little man you've been blessed with. My favorite picture by far is the last one of him holding your hand. Priceless! I love it.

A www!! Happy, happy birthday, sweet Miah!! Emma and Noah can't wait to see you again! :)

I could totally do all dressed up if it was my kids I was dressing up every week. Ha! :)

Oh, and I have to add here that in your fb link, Brandi's comment is what showed in that link and all I could think was... What the crap is she talking about being his aunt and mother in law??? Lol. I was sooooo intrigued. Needless to say I was quite relieved when I realized it was Brandi who said those things and not you... His MOM! Hahahahaha ;)
