A failed attempt

So there's this one blog I hop around to. It's called SMILES. It's nothing more than a mother blogging about her sweet baby boy. Very simple. Very clean. I like it because the mom is like super cute! She's so hip and has the cutest little pixie cut. She looks good in EVERY picture at EVERY angle in EVERY situation. So even though I like it, I hate it too because of this. How is that possible to look so cute ALL the time? Not only that, her baby Miles is like SO adorable. Not as cute as my Izey of course *wink* but close, very close. She always has these pictures of herself with her baby. "Candid" shots. Anyway, After seeing one of her recent posts I got creative and thought maybe Isaak and I could do a montage of cute "candid" shots. Uhmm, not so much. The first picture was okay. He didn't know what we were doing yet.
The he realized he didn't like getting his picture taken and wasn't gonna have ANYTHING to do with it. He kicked and pushed...

He tried to bite me.

I gave up after about 32 pictures of this fighting. Can you picture me fighting this little booger all while trying to hold the camera and get a cute shot? Once I surrendered and just laid with him on the floor he was happy again. His favorite spot, in front of the TV...by mom. So maybe we'll never be as cute as Staci and Miles, but I still love my Isaak.

I like the last one! You need a tri-pod and camera with a timer. :)

Lindsay said...

you look like lovers in that last one... and you look really tan. I like Isaak's expression. And yes... you and i will never be as cute as Stacy and Miles but we can always try. :)

That last picture is too darn cute! And I think the other ones are cute too! Of course you had to show me u p and look cute in your pic's! LOL! I might have to try that laying on the floor idea with L and P:)

Darling pics! I looked at the SMILES blog and she is a doll, but then so are you. By the way, your blog always cracks me up. I am always laughing after I read it. NancyP

I like the last picture. Cute!

Bonnie said...

Oh, I love that last picture! You definitely DO look better laying down :-) I think if your face wasn't so smashed up against Izey in the first pic, it would be a pretty good one too. The second, well it's obvious, he was being held against his will. I'm sure with some practice you will have pictures just as cute as Staci and Miles. Besides, I bet she uses Photoshop..

I like the last one. It's like he is saying "Ha Ha I won and Mom finally gave up" I love his DIG shirt. Dad

Dena said...

I think the first one is awesome. I looked at the smiles blog too and she does have the cutest little haircut. But, I'm with you, Isaak is winning the cuteness contest (that is until Feb). :)

Check out babies r us.

Hi, this is Staci's older sister, Aymee (Cousin Adalei link on SMILES blog). I just want to say how cute you are! And that little man is absolutely adorable! All of your children are adorable. I know, I have given up on looking as cute as my sister, although I've tried the pixie cut and when I actually do my hair people think we are twins...wow is that a compliment. I get really excited, although I know they are just trying to be nice because really they only think she is cute...but don't want me to feel bad:) That last picture is so cute I must add.

That last picture of you two is so cute! I followed your link from the co-op email. I hate those "cutie patootie" moms too. :) -Katrina

Staci said...

OH YOU GUYS stop it...your making me blush. I am soo flattered that you would mention me on your blog and that I inspired you to take pics. You baby is sooo precious and these pics. are so adorable. You brought your own personalities to it. I cant get enough of the 3rd one. That is so cute and fun at the same time. You are a sweet girl and a wonderfully mommy!

haha this is great! Hi I am Stac twinner Steph...you comment on my Mother Q's post! I agree Stac and Smiles are adorable...and I hope to be that cute when I have a babe! But not likly I dont have the wonderful of Skinny-ness like Stac does. and I def. cannot pull off the pixie hair. My nose is way too big!

The Toland's said...

You are gorgous by the way! I loooove your eye brows!

Tara and family said...

At least you TRIED, I won't even go there, I know I don't have a chance at looking that cute and creating pics like Staci. She is a doll, but so are YOU! She also told me once that she has a really good photo shop program, can't remember what it is. So she crops and messes around with all her photos and they come out looking so professional and darling! You two look so beautiful too, I think you did great on those pictures. :)

SM said...

That girl with her pixie cut is TOO CUTE. But I gotta say, you and Isaak are giving them a run for their money!

David & Teresa George said...

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!! Baby that one girl loves your eyebrows...remember another one of your blogs about how you got those bad eyebrows from me when you learned the art of plucking and look now youare getting compliments on them. Woo HOO!!!!!!!

Love you mother....you too Isaak (you look like a little man in that last picture) You don't even know me and I am your mawmaw
