The elusive smiling photo.
My babies seriously smile all day long (and all night long, too - which I like less. No fun! Sleep only!) but we haven't managed to get more than one crappy picture on my mom's phone.
This is for two main reasons:
1. If you hold a camera in front of your face the babies can long longer see you and stop laughing at you.
2. If you hold a camera discretely to the side of the babies they always see it and become distracted.
Basically the problem is that our cameras are too big and interesting.
BUT yesterday we managed to sneak these pictures.
Oh my gosh.
I freaking love my smiley boys.
Grey was smiling at me, and I pulled my camera out of it's secret hiding place (my lap) and snagged this.
And Micah was grinning up at his grandma. I actually got a few of Micah before he noticed the camera, but they're slightly out of focus. I was being too speedy to notice.
Today we are driving home, and tomorrow we will be with Travis again. Hurrah! I can only hope the ride home will be filled with smiles and not tears.
(The ride here, sadly, featured some tears. But only the last two hours...)
