embrace the camera: 4/5/12


it's embrace the camera/olive is 4 months old day!
we'll begin with sweet olive.
i could not get her to crack a smile during her photos (all 2 minutes of them).
she didn't respond well to the poop story.  rude.



and let's be honest here---it lasted 2 minutes because the moment i sat her down this is what she did...either this:
or this:
 or this:
 lovely.
the days of easy peasy monthly pictures are long gone i fear.


and then to top it all off, she did not want to embrace the camera with me.
rude again.
in this next one she is most definitely giving the stink eye.

eh.
i always say some pictures are better than no pictures.

your turn, lovelies!
here's the nitty gritty on embrace the camera:
1. take a picture of YOU with your kids, spouse, friends, etc. the point of embrace the camera is to get in front of the camera and to document a bit of yourself.
2. link up your POST, not your blog, that way we can see your embrace post.
3. link back to our blog by a text link or using our button in your post.
4. and lastly, have fun and visit each other!
leave each other lots of love---it's not easy to get in front of the camera---bravo to all of you who join us every week! your family will thank you for it one day :)
