"a portrait of my son, once a week, every week in 2014"

Jimmy: Quiet and contemplative after being very cranky in the car, also preparing for the two finger chew.

Looking back, I'm blown away by how much growing Jimmy did on the road trip, and how much he changed over the 3-4 weeks we had visitors. I'm also aware of how disruptive it was to his routine, but I'm amazed by how well he managed with all the travelling and new people and places, all while teething something awful. Actually, the teething is only getting worse and he seems to be constantly chewing on two fingers, drool running down his arm...

Michael took this photo after Jimmy had settled down after an hour or so screaming in the car because he thought we were making him go sleep without any boobie. Oh my darling boy! Once we started settling in for the night, Jimmy settled down a bit, but it was still hard to get him down for the night (he had worked himself into quite a state in the car, so there was a lot of coming down to do). Michael noticed Jimmy behaving in a similar manner to when we moved and worried that Jimmy might be stressing about that, but by the next night Jimmy was happy to see our tent (did I mention that we had it up in living room for a week when it arrived?), and I think he quickly got his head around the impermanence of the situation.
