Say Cheese! Please?

Well, we survived our 6/18 month photo shoot with the boys today, barely. When we got to the portrait studio both boys were angels. We had a long wait so we were very pleased that Gage stayed close to us and happily played with some legos, while Eli was as content as could be in his carrier. But then it was our turn and all crying broke loose.

I have to say, as much as I love and adore my little 17 month old, I miss the days when he just sat and smiled for the camera. Like this:

Nowadays we (photographer included) have our work cut out for us.

They do make me giggle though!

Thankfully we did get some good ones out of the bunch.

Eli was a trooper!

This one reminded me of one of Gage's 6 month poses last year:


Eli just has a few more rolls than Gage did...

(So hard to believe it was just a year ago that Gage was sucking on his fingers and reaching for his toes. How do you not miss that stage?!)

We all left pretty exhausted today, but very happy with the end result.

The ending and beginning of each and every blessed day.
