I found these in a file on my desktop from months ago. I thought I’d already uploaded them here. I’m losing my mind.
“Smile, Paige!” (aka: “My name is Paige Connolly and I don’t do a dadgum thing I don’t feel like doing. Ever.”)
An attempt at getting them in the same shot:
These were taken so long ago that this outfit no longer fits her. Which to be fair is also true of clothes she was able to wear two weeks ago…
“Oh, dear me!”
I just love what sibling rivalry has done for my ability to get good pictures of Liam. All I have to do is try to take pictures of Paige and Liam jumps in front of the camera and volunteers a pose. After failing to get good pictures of him on any regular basis for over a year, this is a welcome change. Just look at this face!
Why do my children insist on playing under the kitchen table (which is the dirtiest place in the whole house…and that’s saying a whole lot these days)?
Partners in crime:
It’s shots like this one that make me feel justified in following them around with the camera from time to time:
“Check me out!”
Another attempt at a shot of them together:
This was the day Liam’s monkey costume came in the mail. He rushed immediately to try it on and gave me this pose which made me feel much better about ordering his costume rather than making it…
Paige gets in on that sweet dress-up action:
A boy and his top hat:
“Hey, Liam. Show me your best monkey impression.”
Paige gives the top hat a try:
I have no idea what this face was about but I love it.
One goes in. The other comes out. Rinse and repeat. And again. And so on and so forth. Until someone starts crying…
What is it about a baby on a bug?
After a day at the fair with Gran and Granddaddy:
First face painting experience (he loved it so much that there were tears when it had to be washed off):
Sleepy, happy boy.
Posing in his school-photo-day duds:
You can’t tell how much I’m loving being able to take his picture again, can you?
I have no idea what the context of this picture is, but I love it.
That’s all for now. And possibly for a while. I make no promises these days…
