Dottie is 8 months old, and all decked out for Christmas! The last month has been a big one for her… finally becoming full mobile as she crawls everywhere, and getting two shiny white teeth! We know she’s not really going to understand all the hoopla around Christmas, but man, I’m still so excited for her to open presents. It’s going to be a fun morning for all four of us!
The tutu she’s wearing for her 8 month pictures was a gift from some of our favorite repeat clients, Kevin & Nicole Berg. Thanks guys… she loved all the sequins! 🙂
The chair was a junk store find, that Mack painted and recovered for me. A pretty new prop!
Here are a few of my favorites… it’s hard no to post a lot when this sweet baby loooooves the camera!
That look says, “see how pretty I am?”
This is about the time we gained an audience! There was a really young girl out taking some point&shoot portraits of a little family at the same location, and they came to watch us all jump around like monkeys so Dorothy would laugh. I bet we were pretty silly looking!
You should see my “outtakes”… the many faces of Dottie.
So big standing up!
We changed Dot’s clothes real quick so that we could do an “official” Christmas picture of the kids. We had grand ideas of getting this done sooner so we could send out Christmas cards to everyone on our list… but yeah, that didn’t happen. Next year! This year, we just printed out a few here in the office to give to grandparents and such. Before the real thing, there are a few that didn’t end up being the front of the card, but are still pretty cute…
Dottie had a miniature meltdown… but a quick hug from brother fixed her right up! She loves him so much.
And finally, the official McG Christmas card. If you’re offended that we didn’t send you one, feel free to print this out, stick it in your mailbox, and pretend we did. 🙂
Aren’t my children just gorgeous? 🙂
Merry Christmas, my lovelies. You guys have made helped make this Christmas season one of the best ever!
