how I know E is not going to be the next Ford infant model superstar

This morning we attempted to get our family portrait taken. Attempt being the operative word. Might I say that E was not the least bit cooperative. Until the very end, when we put him down in the middle of the pool table and the photographer stood on it to take his picture. I think he realized that he was doing something illegal because then he was all about being cheery and smiling. Perhaps some of that had to do with me taking off his clothes so he could be back to his happy naked self.

By the way, the cleaning lady told us as we walked by that the baby is probably cold.

Everyone has to have an opinion.

So, you got some pics of the baby on top of the pool table. Very cool sounding. Can't wait to see the cutie.

You probably shouldn't have let him on the pool table like that. You can off set the table you know!... lol... I'm just kidding! Don't you love how people either A) state the obvious or B) give you their opinion like you might actually take it! lol

In all my sessions with the photographer to have my two beautiful and sweet baby girls photographed, they almost always cried. My daughter asks me now why I tortured them as kids! LOL However, the oldest now takes a great picture. Just point a camera at her and she turns "on"!

Christina--I was at the hotel, so that cleaning lady doesn't count

Marelle--Derek's brilliant idea about the pool table. I'm not that smart

Humor Girl--It was the pool table at a bar so it doesn't matter. Next question, who takes a baby to a bar to get his picture taken? It was actually the lobby bar of the hotel and it was closed

Avik--thanks

MB--it's all about the torture. Isn't that what we signed up for?

I think most kids hate picture-time ... but I'm with Marel, I bet the pool table aspect was pretty neat!

Babies and little kids hate picture-taking, have to hold still too long. Yep, it seems like everyone has an opinion about child-raising, even those with no children!
