Cheese

Charlotte started smiling at us about a week ago, but I haven't been able to catch it with the camera yet. My attempts at getting a picture of a smile somehow always turn out looking like this...
I know...worst faces ever.

To my defense, Hunter doesn't make it easy because the second I get the camera out, he starts begging to take a picture. Between his loud whines and yelling, "MY TURN! MY TURN!" over and over, it's no wonder Charlotte has such a disgusted look on her sweet face.

Being the awesome mom that I am, I do let him have a turn after I satisfy myself with about 15 attempts, which apparently all turn out to be crying-furrowed brow-ugly faced baby.

Here are some of Hunter's best shots...

Ironically, those are the closest pictures to a smile that I have of Charlotte. He may not have the angle right, but he sure knows how to make his sister happy....er, when he's not laying on her...or screaming at her in the car...or "smelling" her arm while nearly yanking it off of her body...yeah, other than that he makes her happy.

The good news is, Hunter has been doing less screaming "no!" the second I pull out the camera and more actual smiling for pictures. My choices are either the half smile...or the closed eye smile...I'll take either over crying baby/screaming toddler face anyday.

They make cameras for toddlers that really work....maybe Santa will bring one for Hunter!! :)

She's so cute and has gotten so big since I've seen her. I need to stop by soon.
