Sal has a thing for all things construction related. Excavators, dump trucks, bulldozers, grading machines....you name it, he loves it. I was going through my photos the other day and showed him this picture from his newborn days. My sister brought over my brother in law's original Tonka truck so I could try and recreate a pinterest inspired "baby sleeping in a Tonka" picture.
The original? Awesome. Mine? Eh..not a fail, but not as successful as I had hoped.
There's a reason people hire professionals for newborn photos. Lesson learned.

After convincing Sal that it was actually a picture of baby Sal, and not Carla, he ran to his wannabe Tonka and pretended to sleep on it, "yike baby Sal". It was too cute not to snap a quick picture. These days ALL of my photos are blurry. The boy does not sit still.
Who knows, maybe I'll pull his Tonka out at high school graduation and make him try to recreate it again.
That wouldn't be embarrassing or anything.
Stay small, Sal. Stay small.
