Baby Log: Week 32

Sunday, April 4, 2010

There was a lot of running around town this week:
  • We took Marlie to the arboretum last Sunday to take Easter pictures among the blossoming tulips. This was her first professional photo shoot, and I wanted everything to be perfect. Well she woke up that day with three huge pimples on her forehead (more on this in the next bullet). Nothing a little airbrushing can't take care of, so I didn't panic. We get to the photo shoot. Marlie is so pretty in her dress and hat that she draws a crowd. But the stinker refuses to smile! Her photos all look like this--> Note: PhotoShop cannot turn a frown upside down. Sarah the photographer was kind enough to offer a re-shoot on Thursday. I got her all dressed up again and took her back the the arboretum. She was still giving mean looks, but I managed to get her to smile enough times to get some really nice pictures.
  • Back to these weird pimples. On Monday morning they looked really inflamed. I also noticed raised bumps on her left arm while giving her a bath that evening. I took her to the pediatrician on Tuesday who had no idea what was going on with the bumps on her forehead, but instructed me to apply Neosporin three times a day. alrighty. She said the bumps on the arm appeared to be insect bites.
  • Marlie slept through the night on Monday! She went to bed around 8:30 and didn't wake up until around 5 am. There was no repeat performance the rest of the week though. Her gums are really bothering her and she is cranky all the time. The other bottom front tooth is about to break through. I hope it hurries up. I am exhausted.
  • Marlie and me went grocery shopping by ourselves on Friday. I proposed this test in an attempt to get some of our errands done during the week so that we could have more quality time as a family on the weekends. I forgot potatoes, but otherwise the experiment was a success.
  • I won the B├ÁKU Super Food ~ Prize Package {Giveaway} at Leslie Loves Veggies

Congrats on the shopping trip and the one-night you got! You are doing great if all you forgot was potatoes...I still can't shop with just the kids and not forget at least 3 things, even when I have a list.

That photo is just awesome, smile or not.

Happy Easter!

The exact same thing happens to us when we try to get good photos of Paloma! She'll smile up a storm in a dull outfit with food on her face, but dress her up and she's suddenly very serious.

Who needs cheesy smiles...that is still a beautiful shot!

Photo shoots are exhausting! I was worn out from my efforts to make Lewis smile at his last shoot LOL. He's not an easy smiler and the usual things like tickling and throwing him around obviously don't work during a photo shoot.

Glad that grocery shopping went well! I do my shopping before I get to work in the morning because bringing the baby just adds an extra layer of work to an already annoying task.
