I was thrilled in January when we found out that a real live photographer was going to be at our mother's day out program to take pictures of all of the kids. I couldn't wait to see how Jake would do. He's become quite a ham when he sees a camera lately. Much to my surprise and horror, they also wanted us teachers to get a picture taken. I'm posting the results of these pics because I figure you might have had a hard day and maybe you need a laugh. I just love the picture of baby Jake. Maybe you can't tell because I took a picture of a picture, but he has the most adorable expression on his face. That photographer cracked him up. We won't worry that he's already showing signs of the lazy eye I usually have in my own pictures. It's cute on a baby. Of course there was a charge for the pictures of Jake, but the photographers were generously GIVING AWAY the pictures of the teachers. FOR FREE! Because really, who among us would pay for this? It is an 8 by 10 of mostly just my head. First of all, he totally posed me. I was so uncomfortable by the time he snapped the camera. I actually got a leg cramp from it. Can you tell how he has me with my hand on my leg and my torso twisted and my left kidney perfectly aligned with my right one? I'm just saying, I was not comfortable at this particular photo shoot. Secondly, can someone give a sister some lipstick? I'm sad to say that I'm a low maintenance girl trapped inside a high maintenance body. There were two other ladies in the room neither of whom told me maybe I should go look in a mirror first. Finally, isn't it nice when your shirt AND hair match the background in a photo? Wow. So that all you can really see in the picture is the white orb that is my face with two piercingly blue eyes sticking out? Someone is in serious need of a tan. My high school year book called and asked if this picture could come over sometime. Maybe I'll just forward it to our reunion committee so they can put it in their slideshow for our twenty year reunion. And no, that white spot on my boob isn't really in the picture, it's just from the flash of my camera. Because really, that would have just ruined the entire photo.
