Once she learned to jump and run, things were a little more difficult, and more often than not a photo had a least one blurry part. But I learned to take LOTS of photos of everything, and usually I came out with a few decent photos where the whole kid was in focus.
Fast-forward to having a three year old and an (almost) three month old. Caputuring a photo of both of them that is not blurry and where both are looking at the camera NOT making stupid faces is near impossible. There have been countless times where I have spent 5 minutes trying to take a photo of them being adorable together and have looked at the photos later to find that EVERY. SINGLE. ONE is unusable.
Take today for example. Uncle Billy sent an outfit for Christmas and I wanted to get a photo of LittleL.G. wearing it. About 20 photos later, these are the best three:
|cute of MiniM.E., Little L.G. ready to faceplant chair arm|
|cute of LittleL.G., MiniM.E. angry that LittleL.G. is grabbing her|
|the only photo where nobody is blurry|
In other news, and illustrated by some reasonably decent photos, MiniM.E. and LittleL.G. spend every morning (and some afternoons) cuddling on the couch or in LittleL.G.'s rocker:
|this is the best of 17 photos of them sitting in matching pajamas... can't say I didn't try|
LittleL.G. is rocking tummy time:
MiniM.E. figured out that my phone has games and photos on it but can also be used by her to take photos:
And we went to a play date where MiniM.E. dressed up in a Belle outfit for hours, played princess and had the most adorable 3-year-old lunch date:
