She's trying SO hard to figure out what it is we want her to do - its all over her face She's such a good little girl.I really should be too embarrassed for Theia's sake to even post these pictures, but they are so stinkin' hilarious that I just had to! I don't know when we're going to get around to getting this photoshoot done for real. It is SO HARD to get decent pictures of your children sometimes. Ironically, these pictures that Jessie took of Eliza in our backyard earlier in the day turned out to be the best shots of the day. And he just happened to stop work long enough to run out and snap a few while she was playing. *sigh* She is pretty cute, isn't she? And just for the record, Theia is VERY cute too, and I have plenty of adorable pictures to prove it.

Frightening Images Ahead...
This was going to be the day that we finally get some 1 year pictures taken of Eliza (she's been 1 for almost a month), and hopefully some of Theia, as well of the two of them together. So, after spending an hour or so ironing the various outfits I planned for them to wear during their photo shoot, and bathing both girls, we headed off to a picturesque area to start shooting. Unfortunately we didn't take into account the sprinkler system at said picturesque area. The grass was too wet to sit little girl bums on. So we headed off to another suitable area nearby. We were greeted with perfect evening light on the little lake, beautiful gardens, and lots of pebble-covered walkways. The pebble-covered walkways sealed our doom. Eliza cannot focus on anything when there are rocks around; she is absolutely convinced that any rock she sees belongs in her mouth, and when confronted with so many at once, you can imagine the bewildering effect. With so much urgent work before her we could hardly expect her to be interested in anything else. After spending about a half hour trying to convince Eliza not to eat rocks (without success), we shifted our focus to Theia. Theia was willing to pose, but not willing to smile, or even look remotely pleasant at first. Unfortunately we had the bright idea of telling her to "show Mommy your teeth". See results below:
