You know, this all started with me trying to entertain myself. It was March 25, 2009 and D was at work. Emily and I were home, and OMG OMG OMG she BLINKED! Quick grab the camera, D will never believe that she actually blinked! Must get a picture of the world’s greatest and smartest baby BLINKING! Crap, missed it…. Sigh, and she will likely never blink again…
That impromptu photo shoot yielded this picture
And I sent that picture to D with the subject line, “Greatest picture ever”, and this picture is in a frame on our dresser. Doesn’t it look like she and the monkey are deep in conversation or more likely, sharing a laugh at my expense? 🙂
We did pictures of Emily with that same monkey in the same chair 12 times, every month on the 25th.
So obviously, I need to take similar pictures of the twins.
When the twins were one day old, D and Emily stopped by a toy store to get the babies some friends. Emily picked out a turtle for baby girl (swoon, I so badly wanted to do the nursery in turtles, but Em was So insistent on monkeys… so now baby Sidney has a turtle 🙂 ), and another one for herself, and a lion for baby Spencer. So that seemed the natural “prop” for the monthly pictures.
I’ll work on it…
But in an effort to salvage the photo shoot, I took a couple cute sleeping shots (those are the easiest shots to take 🙂 )
and then a few of Spencer with his giant open eyes
