A Day without a Smile

As I walked Chandler out from Ladies' Bible Study to the car Tuesday morning, I noticed not only what great weather we were having, but also how beautiful the church grounds were. So I hesitated as I was about to put him in the carseat. After all, the big boys were at home, this was my chance. Why not have a little photo shoot with this big 6 month old?!

So I grab my camera, and set him down on the grass. At first all he wanted to do was touch and look at the grass.

Then I realized I could get low enough to get the cars out of the background. This is when it really got fun.

My only hitch to this otherwise perfect opportunity: I could not get Chandler to stop making this face.

Some ladies walked up behind me and managed to get an attempted smile:

He even didn't want them to leave. But he just couldn't smile:

I did manage this:

and this drooly cheesy-ness:

So I headed over to the restaurant where Chuck was eating. As soon as we got into the restaurant, Chandler got fussy. This is, again, out of character for Mr. Happy-All-The-Time. So I skip out on lunch and take him home. Then it hit me: he was making poopie! That's why all the faces. And by the restaurant he was ready to be changed.

Duh. You'd think this was my first kid or something.

That's hilarious. At least when he gets older you'll never have to look back and say, 'Sure wish I'd caught his poopie face on camera!' It's like a perfect play-by-play. :)

I can't believe how old he looks!

His 'poop'en face' is adorable! He's adorable!

Those are great pictures!

What a stinker! I guess literally. Hah! :) The pictures are great, I love the angle. Sorry you couldn't get a smile.

We'll talk more about picture taking soon. I didn't even notice you had 2 less tags on Tuesday. What a nice treat to only have one.

That's too funny! I thought that he was just sad b/c the brothers were around! ;) HAHAHAHA! Thanks for the chuckle this morning! :)

These are just precious--and your description about what was 'really' going on (The Diaper Journals...) was hysterical! Gorgeous pics, regardless of the biological function...
