About this photo: We're sharing vacation photos all week long. You can, too: Just go here.One of the neat things about parenthood is getting to watch your kids grow into fully formed people. It's not so much a size thing as it is a personality thing. While, yes, it is wonderful that they can now dress themselves, walk around under their own power and chat with us at eye-level, the real thrill comes from seeing them develop their own interests, tastes and voices.
On that front, our kids seem to be doing just fine. To wit, our daughter took this picture while were were walking on the long breakwater that juts into Lake of Two Mountains off of Montreal's western tip. She noticed the tire barrier first, and called me over as she lined up the shot. It's the kind of oddball scene that I'd shoot - only now she's noticing them first, and she's capturing them in ways I never would have imagined.
Cool how that works.
Your turn: How did you find your own voice?
