Portrait of a Bean

As Bean gets busier and busier, it’s getting harder and harder to catch him for a picture.  I used to be able to sit there and take as many pictures of him as I wanted and he just laid there and cooed up at me, never moving.  Now, I pull out my camera and he literally runs the other direction.  He has places to go, people to see, and toys to destroy.  He cannot be bothered by mom’s camera.

So, imagine my extreme happiness and surprise today when I pulled out my camera and not only did he not run in the other direction, but he whipped out his pearly whites, looked right into my camera lens, and hammed it up.


There he is.

My little apple dumplin’.


My little cherry blossom.


My little….

Wait! Where are you going?!?!


Moment over.

  7. I know EXACTLY how you feel! Now that our little guy is crawling, it takes me twice as long to get a decent picture of him which basically is just one where he’s sitting still. 🙂

  14. So cute! Rohan’s PJ pants do the same thing – one pant legs is always higher than the other…

  15. That’s exactly what I get when I get out the camera…a moment. And that’s only about 35% of the time. The other 65% of the time she runs for cover!!
