Today I hauled all the kids into town to get Anna's portraits taken. At first she was not into it. We had a man photographer and even in my adult opinion, he was a little scary looking. So I can just imagine what he looked like to a baby. Anna had the "I'm scared" eyes in the first pose and kept walking to me for a hug. Luckily I brought one of her babies (thought we might use it as a prop). Once she had that in her hands she was ready to go.
Can I also say just how cute it is to see a little girl squeeze, hug, and cuddle up with a baby doll? I looove it. Anna has two soft dolls she sleeps with at night. One has a rattle somewhere inside so the boys call it the "crazy baby."
Anyways, I was very pleased with the portraits that came out. All of them looked great, but I decided to go with these two. (Grammers -- you need to put in your vote for which one you'd like to see appear in your mailbox.)
Following our adventures in the mall we went to the Container Store to pick up some goodies. Knowing I was going to have all 3 kids with me I did all of my shopping online, printed it out, and was ready to zoom through the store and grab what I needed. I just put everything away and I am feeling very organized tonight!
Tomorrow I need to do the last of Anna's birthday shopping and decide on a cake and what to have for dinner. We always let the birthday kid choose so I'll have to pick one of her favorites -- eggo waffles or macaroni & cheese or pepperoni pizza? Hmmm. Whatever the choice, I'm just glad it's going to be an easy night on me.
