The pictures that we had taken at our parish for the directory arrived (if you're on Facebook you may have already seen them) and really, they came out better than I possibly could have hoped for. No one is crying. Everyone is looking at the camera.
The photographer said that it took all of his skill to snap this one and it truly did. Paul pointed out that Patch looks remarkably happy for a child who was screaming hysterically approximately three seconds before this picture was taken.
He would holler to get down and then the photographer would lift up a bear puppet and he would laugh hysterically.
James, however, did not trust the puppet and was incredibly serious in every single picture. He doesn't quite have his Grumpy Baby face on, but it's close. He was pretty sure that the bear was actually eating Daddy's nose and he was not amused.
Maggie wanted to get as close to me as she possibly could and decided she absolutely needed to be resting her head on my shoulder, which I love.
I also love that Sadie lost her first top tooth shortly before these were taken!
And so here's the first professionally taken family photo we've ever had:
