Wordful Wednesday- Supermodels...we are not!!

Many of you already know that we had a little belated B-day BBQ for my JD Boy on Sunday. After the party I asked the hubby if he could take some pictures of the birthday boy and me. I am never in the pictures because I am always the one TAKING them. Anyway, getting this kid to smile nicely (key word) is like trying to get him to relinquish his claim on my living room as "his field"...not gonna happen. Between JD Boy's inability to smile like a "normal boy", Hubby's dee-dee-dee handling of the camera, and my quitting attitude we turned out some LOVELY shots. I'm talking front cover of Vanity Fair, BAY-BEE!!!!

We begin with the open mouth pose (at least there wasn't food in his mouth)

Ok, let's change background and try the "sit in lap" pose, Uh No...looking a little "strained" there
buddy.

Maybe if I move in closer and give him the "squishy, wishy mommy hug" pose...apparently, he is sour on that idea as evident by the pucker on his face.

Time to change pose..let's try the stand by and look at each other adoringly...no, no son, you look at me, and what's with that "strained" look again...you need more fish oil dear???

I give up...Honey, just take the flippin' pictures and I'll just pose "JD Boy style" too, what the heck if you can't beat 'em...right??




And Finally....I think a semi-decent picture (at least of me anyway)















**Ok, I don't know how this happened. It's late and I'm a dork. However, the link to Angie's SevenClownCircus got messed up and now if you click on any of the text below my signature, it will link you through to her site. So, no pretty button, just my lame explanation of how un-techy I am that I can't even set up a link right.

Very funny and cute picture. You look great! All the expressions are priceless. Getting boys to smile is very difficult!

Amy said...

Cute, Lady Di! JD Boy might just be taking after Aunt Amy in the first picture. Always has that mouth open. :) We are still hangin' out in Idaho waiting on our vehicle. I think they are supposed to have a heat wave like 90 degrees today. Crack me up - like that is a heat wave. At least I have got some great blog material.

You're much better than a boring supermodel. You're happy and a great mom!

Michele said...

Stopping by from SITS. Cute pics!

JennyMac said...

Too cute...mine MUGS for the cam at any moment and says "CHEEEESE" but it won't last. My brother who is 40 still acts like a clown during photo opps and can not simply take a nice family pic. Some NEVER grow out of it. :)
