See that spot on Jude’s bottom lip? (Nevermind the confused expression.) No, it’s not a piece of food, though that’s an honest mistake. It’s actually a mistake I made for a while too. It gradually started showing up when he was around 15 months or so (I’m not totally sure, that’s just my best guess from going through old pictures), but I, thinking it was a piece of food or dirt or something, edited it out of pictures for a few months until one day it hit me that he always seemed to have a piece of food in the same place, even when the rest of his face was clean. Then, of course, I looked at his face and saw a freckle!
I just have to tell you that I love this freckle. It is so quirky and so him… I can’t imagine him without it. I told Josh the other day that if we ever have professional pictures made of him, I’ll have to tell the photographer about that freckle or else they might edit it out just like I used to.
