sometimes great pictures just happen...

... and sometimes they don't. Because sometimes, managing to get one-- just one!!-- decent picture of your three little girls in their matching stripey pj's is harder than getting them to eat brussel sprouts (which I've never actually tried to do, because hello, brussel sprouts are gross. ew.) The proof is in the pictures:

Aaaaaaaaand she's gone.
So that was that.

But you know what?? I think I kind of like the way THESE turned out. Who wants a perfect picture with all three kids sitting still and smiling perfectly, anyway? Does such a thing even exist???

I love my little striped munchkins. Even if they don't appreciate my efforts at preserving memories for posterity's sake. :)

hehehe I know the photo you were aiming for. It's hard enough to get with TWO kids, much less 3 with a mobile infant LOL
But you're right. These photos ARE pretty fantastic! Love those matchy jammies!!!

ahhhhh!!! stripey pjs!!! anything that involves a cute lil' bum in footy pajamas make me crazzzzy happy :) good job on the photos, mom! such beautiful kids!

Cute pictures! But I have to disagree with you about the Brussels Sprouts. I think they're yummy, but it's all in the preparation.

How adorable! Man that blonde hair is amazing, I know I have to say that every time you post of a photo - but, for reals!

I love the fifth picture, Emma looks like the little actress, just trying to select the correct pose and expression, while helping to keep Rosalie interested :)

It wouldn't be real if they sat there perfectly posing! The candid photos are just that much sweeter! I love their matching jammies. I love dressing the boys the same, even if it is just pjs. :)

These pictures are sooo cute! And I think they're more adorable than posed pictures. Your girlies are having fun and being real! My favorite is the fifth to last. I would totally frame it if I was you! They look so precious in their matching PJs!

your first paragraph had me in stitches, you are so dang funny! and the photos are perfection, if you ask me! and yes, i agree, there is no such thing as 3 kids sitting perfectly. your pictures are way better than that!

TOOOOOOOOO Cute! It is so fun you have a blonde and a dark headed I wonder what your little one will end up... Oooooh could she be red. RED would be perfect! Anyhow, love the jammies!!! It is hard to find cute stuff that doesn't have ridiculous characters or words on them. Good pics Mom and don't worry they'll appreciate it later... You have to come see my Invisible Woman post tomorrow...!!! You love it!

Mommy Diffee said...

AH! I love it! I am so into the matchey matchey thing, it is just too cute! And I think EVERY one of those pictures were amazing! Did any of the baby pictures we took the other day turn out? The one I got before my camera died did not work =(
