GRRRR!! Tiny Tiger!

This week's Photo Friday subject is 'Tiny'.

I took this picture of little three month old Aemon about two or three weeks ago. That tiny tiger suit just took all the cute in the world, gathered it in one place and wrapped up tiny little Aemon in it.

My teeth! They ache from all the cuteness!!

Aemon, Tiny Tiger. March, 2005.

This isn't a great picture, blurry and poorly exposed, but I love it. (I was trying to capture the moment while avoiding hitting Aemon's sensitive little eyes with a flash.) The best thing about this pic is the way it captures Aemon's worried little face. Seriously, you have never met a child this pensive. Since the day he was born he's been carrying the weight of the world on his tiny shoulders. That's a lot, even for a tiger.

Despite the fact that I may come across as all 100 Acre Wood anally retentive and semantic, and risk the wrath of the Disney corporation for daring to mention a trademark characters name without first paying a price in blood (or in my case at least my own weight in gold for a Disney video collection), that is clearly not a tiger. Its a Tigger. At the risk of sounding like a loser who got a little too enchanted by his then young daughters love of all things Disney, I needed to clear this up.

Now I have Tiggers catchy little bouncing song running around my head:

"The wonderfull thing about Tiggers is
Tiggers are wonderful things
The bodies are made out of rubber
Their tails are made out of springs
Their bouncy, bouncy, flouncy, flouncy
Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun
The wonderful things about Tiggers is
I'm the only one!"

But your right about little Aemon looking extremely cute. He is the very personification and incarnation of cuteness itself. He may well be the first Cutie Lama.

TTFN (thats ta ta for now for all you Tigger challanged people)
