Fantastic: Mr. Fox

The Comptons 

My little boy turned 6 months yesterday, (the 28th) and it has been the best 6 months ever.  He has filled my heart with so much love and has filled my life with so much happiness and I know I will never be the same again.  When he wakes up in the morning he opens his big blue eyes and gives me the sweetest smile, and I know that it will be a great day no matter what, because he is here.  The first thing we do is look outside my bedroom window and his eyes get so big as he looks all around.  He loves to be outside....and no matter how hot it is.  It's so cool how I can see his personality forming everyday.
At 6 month checkup 16.2 lbs!
For some reason I have been obsessed with foxes lately, and I could think of nothing more perfect for his 6 month photoshoot than a baby fox theme.  My father-in-law of David Compton Photography, took them at his studio downtown, and just when I thought it wouldn't come together without a fox tail, (every fox needs his tail) David came to the rescue.  Me-"Man I meant to make him a fox tail to go with his fox hat. Mer." David-"You know what, hold on a minute..." He disappears into the depths of the studio (its a really big studio).  In a couple minutes, he comes back, looks around, grabs a sheet of paper, and disappears again.  I could not imagine what he needed that paper for, or what on earth he had at the studio that could look like a fox tail.  Finally he comes back with what I was sure was a real tail from a fox that he happened to catch out back and chop of its tail!  But he made it himself by wrapping old rabbits fur that had been used as part of a costume, pinned it around a sheet of paper we could bend, put a safely pin on the end and well, there you have it.  It was the perfect touch.
Cohen had a lot of fun at his first photoshoot.  I had brought a ton of other outfits for him to wear but he got so tired that we had to call it a day.  I can't wait to go back to take some more!

Here are more fox inspired things that I LOVE! :)
