Way back in May, when I was pregnant (on my due date, actually), I got the chance to hang out with my favorite kids Gus and CeCe for the afternoon. As part of CeCe's birthday present, I gifted her a "photo shoot." Basically she got to dress up and I followed her around the house, told her how pretty she was and snapped a million pictures of her. She got strut her diva-self all over the place and try out those toddler super model moves that only she can pull off. This was the perfect gift for her because she is a total ham for the camera. I love it. She loved all the attention and it was so much fun giving her a special day of her own to be the center of attention. I hope this is something we can do every year. Here are a few of my favorites.
Getting ready for her big debut.
Hair and make-up. Check.
Shoes and bows. Check.
Girlfriend already has more high heels and sunglasses than me.
Outside for a quick ride around the yard on the bike...
...and back inside for an outfit change.
This awesome little dress was made by our friend Sarah - you can check out her Etsy store here.
Great little model, isn't she?
Then back outside for some swinging.
Big brother Gus had to join in on the action.
Next we moved over to the little red wagon.
I loved seeing them in this because the wagon was a gift from me to Gus for his birthday last year.
Don't you love when kids actually like the gift you give them?
This was right about the time when the tickle monster attacked.
Gus could barely handle it.
CeCe was amused, but maintained her composure.
And of course, remembered to smile for the camera.
She then insisted that her mother and I pull her in the wagon around the neighborhood.
We were less than willing participants in this game.
Her mom had just given birth to twins a few weeks earlier and I could go into labor at any second.
Needless to say, she was not pleased with us.
She proceeded to take all her clothes off and refused to take any more photos.
So we bribed her with ice cream.
Third and final outfit was one of her own choosing.
Girlfriend has style and attitude.
Call me, maybe?
Photo shoot over.
