Baby's First Christmas

Here's June in her Christmas dress. June had the cutest dress and bow and stockings and tiny black shoes. I had been waiting to take these pictures until I had every detail of her outfit and our first Christmas tree up! What is it about babies that make taking pictures such an ordeal! First, she was happy.....
loving every minute and smiling...I could just post this and let it be...the perfect Christmas portrait, but the reality was, right when I put her in the chair she made a poo in her pants, then I couldn't get her to stop reaching for the ornaments,...
after dancing around singing and trying to get the cute shots above, things were going downhill fast, an ornament fell and broke but i just swept the peices aside and kept taking the pics, Buddy wanted to be in the pic so I kept having to push him out of the way, her hand got caught in the garland and that made her pretty upset, not to mention the ornaments that were flying off as she was flailing her little arms around trying to get the garland off.....


Finally June had had enough and the last few pictures looked something like this...at least we got a few cute shots but was it all worth it? Yes

how funny...your whole ordeal could easily be an episode on t.v. You should sell your story to a t.v. studio with all that drama going on over there. Happy new year, and we'll hopefully see you guys soon.
