In honor of my alma mater being in FIRST PLACE in the SEC East (what?!), I figured it was about time we showed some Mizzou Tiger spirit around these parts.
I took these photos a few weeks (months?) ago, so forgive me for just now getting around to posting them. Life of a momma of two is busy! Also, how is it already mid-November? And snowing!
Anyway, time is flying and since these photos were taken, Mac had another haircut and looks at least 8 years old. Mim has since doubled in size and is growing some serious thigh rolls and a finally getting a neck.
We're so proud.
She's still totally bald though. I love me some fat bald buddha baby.
Taking photos of two kids together is proving to be much more of a challenge that I expected. I don't know how "real" photographers ever manage to get sibling shots with both kids looking in the same direction, yet alone smiling. It took me twenty minutes and 135 Skittles just to convince Mac to put on the shirt, yet alone sit for a photo and hold the baby he despises.
Once he was hyped up on sugar (and knew he had the upper hand), he refused to look at me, refused to hold Mim, refused to smile and refused to sit still. What should have been a 5 minute photo shoot turned into a full-on toddler wrestling match. I basically had to strap him down and just throw Skittles in his mouth.
Toddlers are SO much fun.
But then the stars align and you get ONE shot that just melts your heart. One shot where they're both looking at the camera, not screaming or spitting up, not falling over or running away.
Totally worth that inevitable sugar crash to come.
Even if the baby is falling over and licking her arm. Whatever.
Speaking of sugar high...yep.
This is Mac showing me how big and strong football players are.
And this is how tall you have to be to be a football player.
And you have to be LOOOOOOUUUDDDD!!!
(Actually, I think he was just yelling at me for more Skittles.)
How you do say no to this face?
(Seriously, if someone knows, please fill me in,)
Or this face?!
Those blue eyes and the chubby cheeks. I could eat her up.
Could they possibly be any cuter?
Anyway, what the hell was my point?
