Fresh Pic'd Samlet!

We just got back from Portrait Innovations with Sam's 3 (almost 4)month pics. We did it spur-of-the-moment because we were on that side of town. I grabbed this monkey outfit from the local Carters, and signed up for PI's next available photo shoot. Sam has a bit of acne, and he scratched his face, but I decided not to wait. Sometimes it's just more important to get it done, than to get it done perfectly.


HE WAS SO GOOD! He smiled for about an hour.

He let the photographer take a ton of pics without getting upset, and he laughed when she tickled him or tried to get him to smile. He seemed to be thinking, "I don't know what is so dang funny to you, but okay!"


I love each of the shots, but my favorite is the wicker background. He gives me this look sometimes when he wakes up. A kinda, "Ah yes, I was expecting you. Come into my office please and have a seat . . ." which makes him seem older beyond his years (months) in age. We also love the Alfalfa hair "whoosh!"

We got the portrait package of his chubba chubba legs pulled up, and I simply could resist this one of him giggling. It makes me happy just looking at it.

We are so happy to have this boy in our lives. He is such a darling, laid back, happy kinda kid. He has a great sense of humor, and loves to have people come and coo over him. We had a good time, and I can rest knowing that I'm off the hook for pics for another 2 months. :D

yay!! monkey monkey monkey!! I LOVE the wicker picture, too! I can't believe how much his face has changed since I saw him last. He has turned into mini chub jr. He looks like an old soul in that cute lil' boy body. Congrats on a friggin cute kid, katrinks!

Little (I use that term loosely) boyfriend Sam is so cute! I love the pictures too. And you description of "come on in and have a seat" is so right on the money. How lucky you have a laid back baby - and you get to spend so much quality time with the little dude with the big kids gone to school so much. Little girlfriend Kater's is a bit more high maintenance than my comfort level allows for. Dang it. But I'll keep her. :) I mean, at least to be able to pet her hair...which is now starting to curl and flip in the back@
