A boy is.... / by Carey

I found this quote before Nathan turned one.  I loved it.  It couldn't be a more perfect summation of what 'boy' is.
"A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket." - Alan Marshall Beck

I actually added it to the first picture of Nathan that I was proud of and used it for Nathan's blog header for a while.  It was actually that shot that inspired me to enter the world of Photoshop.  Well, that shot, Pioneer Woman's blog, and my friend Becky, the photoshop master, truthfully.  Here it is.

Nathan has been asking why I don't have a 'big picture' (aka canvas) of him, like I just got of Cora and one for a friend's little girl.  So I decided I'd incorporate this quote that says "Nathan" to me in his new canvas for his room makeover.  But in true Carey fashion, I can't make up my  mind which image to use.

This was at the beach, Topsail Island NC, in early June.

This was during a hike to a waterfall in early July.

Hard to believe the 18 month old dude in the first picture has morphed into this amazing four and a half year old!
