I think Emma was about two here, and if I remember right she was whining at her daddy because she wanted to "see" (the picture Jeremy had taken), instead of having her picture taken AGAIN. Clever kid, she knew all about how those digital cameras worked, even back then!
When Annabelle was 6 months old, we decided to do her 6-month pictures in my parents' backyard ourselves. Some of them turned out so sweet and pretty. This one's not really a blooper, in the sense that she's not crying or anything. But I think it's hilarious. I believe she was just laughing really hard, but it looks like she's getting ready to attack something. Rawr, Annabelle, rawr!
When we went to the beach last summer, it was very windy on the beach. Poor Emma kept getting sand in her eyes, and she was not a happy camper. She refused to even look at the camera when we were trying to take a cute picture of her and her little sand castle.
And here is what used to be Annabelle's classic reaction when we would bust out the camera. She would look away, get this little 'tude about her, and generally stop whatever cute thing she was doing in the moment before. Thankfully, she's getting a bit better about taking cute pictures now. :)
So there they are, my funny little girls. Even "bloopers" are precious pictures-- they're such a great way to capture those little personalities, and they sure do make for some fun stories about our children.
Thanks for a neat-o contest, Barbie!
