We can’t believe we’re parents to a 1.5 year old. Time is seriously starting to fly around here.
We decided to go “buggy” this month with the fabric, partially because they were sort of darker fall colors without being too much like last month’s. Plus Clara has been on a Halloween-induced spider kick for a while. After realizing that she looked über-boyish against that backdrop in a white shirt and jeans, Sherry dressed her in ruffled purple shorts and a headband to balance things out. Isn’t she purty?
Here are some outtakes from this month’s photoshoot. Like this crazy-happy, but crazy-blurry one.
Actually, this was one of Clara’s more “controlled” modelling sessions. She was so excited about the bugs that instructions like “Touch the buggies!” got her to stand perfectly in place.
Though saying “Stand on the buggies” turned into trying to scale the wall.
We also relied on her new love of Frosty the Snowman to sing “Thumpity thump thump” in order to get some dancing (aka stomping) in place.
She even sat, well, laid down for a picture or two for the first time in a long while. Looks like we told her to drop and give us twenty.
How on earth is my little girl six months away from the big 0-2?
Sometimes Burger falls asleep post-stretch with his nose right between his paws. We call it his “Superman” pose because his arms are outstretched like he’s flying off to fight a bad guy in his dreams. The guy literally falls asleep mid-stretch to accomplish this look:
Perhaps my shutter is too loud for our slumbering
Sorry to wake you Super Burgs!
