Outtakes

So as of yesterday, Ryan is now four months old.  Kid was asleep when Lee got home, so when he woke up, we fed him a bottle and then tried to take some pictures.

Yeah, that didn't work so great.

Over FIVE HUNDRED AND FIFTY pictures we've taken of this kid between yesterday afternoon and this morning, and already over 90% of them are in the trash on the computer.  He just refused to look anywhere close to the camera and kept giving us angry facial expressions.  Maybe he inherited my RBF?  Usually he's a little more cheerful than this, I don't know what his deal was yesterday.  So, for you to laugh at, here's some outtakes from our photo session.  We're going to try again on Saturday, in the morning, and see if we can't get him to look HAPPY for the camera.

Now, I'm not saying these are all terrible pictures (some of them are), they just weren't what we were trying for.


Very first picture.  It didn't really improve much from here.  See his look of deep suspicion?


Come on, kid.  Lee was only gone for one night, you can't have forgotten who he is that fast.


Okay, if he had a more pleasant expression on his face, this would actually be a really good picture.  I mean, it's not bad, but he does smile at me a lot and I'd really like to capture that gummy grin in a picture, ya know?


Stubborn.


Stubbornly refusing to look anywhere near the camera.


Blink!  And blurry.


Whaaat?


My face was starting to look like this too.


Well, he's...kind of smiling in this one?


Now see, this would be a GREAT picture if it was in focus and if the lighting had been better.  Arrgh.  Frustrating!


This is what he thinks of our activity this afternoon. *blows raspberry*


Just in case you didn't get it the first time.


Photo bomb by Sadie.  Maybe SHE'S the one who taught Ryan to stick his tongue out!!!


Okay I just think his face is hilarious in this one.


Again, this would be a fantastic picture if he didn't look worried that the camera was going to entrap his soul.


Preeeeetty sure he inherited this expression from me.  #SideEye


I tried again this morning but mostly got ones that look like this.

We did get a few pictures that I honestly like yesterday, but like I said, we're going to try again this weekend and see if we have more luck.  Not going to try it today because he has a doctor's appointment and he's getting shots, so he's going to be even angrier today than yesterday.  Angry baby!

Cheers, y'all.  Have a great weekend!
