The pictures today were... well... let's say that the most positive adjective I can think of is amusing.
I really, really wanted to get a great picture of Sadie's dress. It's an amazing dress that I found on Thred Up back in winter (you can still get $10 off your first order and there are a ton of things on there for less than $10, which is one of the reasons I'm such a fan), but the kids, who had me to get the camera out and take a picture they weren't exactly cooperating.
Case in point:
Do you see how he's mimicking her? And I have no idea why he kept pulling his shirt up and tucking it in like a half shirt. He really did look normal (with pants and a sweatshirt) when we were at Mass this morning.
And then, finally, I snapped the picture I'd been looking for:
And even Patch paused to give me a chance to snap a picture of his smile:
So it wasn't a total loss.
Maggie (who amazingly changed out of her sleeper this morning with minimal crying) slept through the photo session, however I did get a few pictures of her on our way home from Mass in the car, while we waited for Daddy to return a destroyed baby gate... thankfully Lowe's agreed that a metal baby gate shouldn't be able to snapped in two by a three year old, even if that three year old has super human strength.
While we sat in the car she stole my sun glasses and posed with her binkie:
Finally Sadie requested the camera so that she could take my picture. And after snapping a few picture when I wasn't ready we ended up with this picture, which I'm not really a fan of, although again, Patrick's being Patrick:
So I'll throw in this picture from earlier in the week in the same dress:
However I did have to share this picture of my new maternity jacket (I paid $8-something from Thred-Up after using a $10 credit! See why I get so excited! And it's wool!). So I'm set for the rest of this winter, just in case it never ends, and for next fall/winter too without having to worry about fitting into my non-maternity jacket if it gets too cold in October:
