This morning as I was running around the house getting the day started, I put Davis down in the living room with a toy car to keep him occupied. When I returned to the room a few minutes later, I discovered that Addison had brought Davis his basket of baby toys and was playing with him. I don't think anything could have brightened my day more, and I just had to snap a picture for you guys. Plus, it's been awhile since I posted any new photos of them.
Next Friday we venture into scary territory -- professional photography. We've lined up a sitting with the same photographer who took Davis's passport photo.
I'm sure Davis will do fine as the picture from this morning is ample evidence -- Davis obediently holding his smile for the delay of our digital camera, Addison having long since looked away. Davis smiles on command, doesn't wander off, and is generally cooperative, one of the blessings of his age. Addison is another story. Gone are the days of willing poses and cued grins. There was a time, case in point this photo for Christmas 2005.
I've been trying to figure out just exactly how to get our 2 1/2 year old bundle of energy to sit and smile for the photographer. Hmmm...I know this sounds crazy, but I'm considering bringing his portable DVD player and playing funny bits from his favorite movie. Yes, I'm that desperate. I most certainly DON'T want a PixiFoto repeat. Any other ideas? Bribery might also be a good option.
