Wish I was ready for this vacation. I mean, I’m ready and excited for it but not at all prepared. I have been in full-fledged lazy mode the past few days. We’ve had our cars in for routine maintenance so I haven’t had a car to run errands and get all that I need for our trip. Luckily Max is making me laugh with his snorkeling gear for the beach. He eases my stress and puts a smile on my face with his quirkiness and backwards shirts.
But I do have quite a bit to do…so I better get off this computer. I’m just waiting for Mini to wake up from her nap so that we can blaze a trail to the Walmarts. Got plenty of crackers in the bag.
Before I go, I wanted to share the latest portraits I just got back of M & M.
Mini was not in the mood to take pictures with Max and she kept getting up and leaving the room. This is the only one that turned out halfway decent but I only ordered one sheet to remember how Max has a grip on her leg but such a “I’m not doing anything” smile on his face. True to life!
The ones of Max turned out really good. He’s such a ham in front of the camera.
The background doesn’t look as good on here as it does in real life. I don’t even want to admit how long I took to decide what he was going to wear to coordinate with Mini’s dress. This stresses me out so much. As much as I love to take pictures, I hate Portrait Day with every fiber in me.
Mini’s pictures turned out pretty nice, too. I didn’t order a big package but decided last-minute that this was for our Christmas cards. Did you catch that, blog friends? I’m actually ahead of the game this year! It’s funny how things change with your second child. With Max, I would’ve been like “oh no, I’ll have to get his picture taken at the beginning of December because he’ll look so different by then…toddlers change so much in 3 months.” But now I’m all like, “heh, it’s close enough. Mommy is not doing this again for a while.”
Isn’t she gorgeous? It’s okay, I can say that right? I love barefoot pictures.
Regretfully, I didn’t order any of these because she wasn’t smiling and she has a cracker crumb on her face. But really, it captures her look right now. Bangs in the eyes and all. Oh, the growing out the bangs. *sigh*
And this one! Oh my goodness, she always has that tongue sticking out when she’s thinking about something.
The last one really shows that she’s ready for this to be over with. I was feeling the same sentiment! But as always, I’m glad we did it.
And I’m really glad I have our Christmas card picture already out of the way. Hope I don’t forget where I put them come December.
Hey, I should write it down here. I put them in the cabinet above my desk. There. Thanks, Blog.
