I feel like I haven't Momma Blogged in forever! Mostly because this month has been so packed with great reviews and giveaways. I think that holiday shopping is at the top of most of our minds! But another thing that always happens this time of year.... holiday photos.
So that was our mission today. my husband took off from work and we scheduled our whole day around our holiday photos. I scheduled our appointment a month ago so that we would get the first appointment of the day. This way the little one would be chipper and ready to smile for the camera.
We get there 15 minutes early and put her in her adorable Christmas dress. She is dressed like a princess with her dress, tights, and patent leather shoes. She looks adorable! We always have such good luck with her at photo shoots, too! Last year we spent a fortune on photos because every one was perfect. We were ready for this year!
We get all set up in our room and.... melt down. Total and complete melt down like I have never seen before. She wouldn't sit, she wouldn't stop crying, she wouldn't smile, she wouldn't have anything to do with the poor guy with the camera. The only word she could mutter between sobs was "NO." The camera man gave up and wanted to stop. But I wouldn't have it. I needed a good picture... my Christmas cards depended on it!
So I picked her up and tried to comfort her. The clinging begins. She wouldn't let go of me. Who is this kid? My daughter has no problem when I walk out the door and leave her with someone else. Ok, time to give up.
We sat down to view our photos and had trouble finding ONE for the Christmas card. What an experience!
