Monkey Pants at 18 months

This last month I have been determined to set aside some time to do a real photo shoot of Monkey Pants. I do real planned out photo shoots for everyone else's kiddos but mine. So last week I bought her a little outfit at Lass and Laddie, this awesome shop in Kirkwood. Shane came home from work early and we set out for a shoot.

Marlie is definitely going through a stage where she does not like it when I have my camera out so it was pretty difficult to get some good shots, but we did.

I can't believe I got this shot. This is the face that Marlie makes when she gets scared or embarassed. She was looking at some doggies and one barked when she wasn't expecting it. Oh my goodness I want to hold her forever and make sure that face never happens ever again.


But this is how I will remember Monkey Pants at 18 months. Running arms wide, squealing with delight.

Oh Monkey, I love you to pieces.

Even when you give me the stink eye like this...

Which is is a lot.

I LOVE the one of her squatting resting her elbows on her knees. I can hear her saying, "hey, what's up." These are so great. I hope she and Braden can play together sometime soon, they would have a BLAST!

Oh my oh my oh my, Marlie is the cutest ever. And I have a confession to make. I bought a little pinafore from Lass & Ladie about 6 months ago... for my imaginary child. Here's hoping we have a daughter someday--or at least a son who doesn't mind pinafores. Oy.
