April 2013 photos of my kids. The entire series is viewable here.
Alice, 17 months old.
Charlie, 4 years old.
This month was going to be my month to nail the "monthly" photos of the kids. Yup, I had it all lined up. Their cutest pajamas. Pigtails in Alice's hair. Positive attitude radiating from Charlie. Exactly one hour before sunset.
And this was the very best I could do. Out of 20 - 30 shots.
The rest looked like a variation on this -
Then Alice started screaming. Naturally, because that's one of her favorite pastimes.
So I tried moving them off the steps but they wouldn't stand facing me.
Charlie tried to make her jump.
And then he really, really had to go pee.
Then back up on the porch to pose before he went in to relieve himself.
Then Rich made a cameo and let me know how he felt about being excluded from these photos. Classy, isn't he?
Icing on the expectations-not-met cake, Alice climbed into the flower beds. After having had a bath, wearing clean pajamas and her delicious smelling baby lotion.
Oh yeah, dig into that dirt girl. Why not? I'd love to bathe you again. And clean underneath your fingernails.
What's that you see? Oh? Poop from the neighbor's cat? Lovely.
Maybe May will be my month. Maybe.
