Really? Two years?

Has it really been that long? It seems Jack has been in our hearts and lives forever.

Family photos just before Jack's second birthday were certainly, um, interesting. Lots of running around, pulling on the backdrop fabric, running behind the backdrop, and generally very little sitting still and actually smiling. It was just not the best day on earth for obedience. The photographer was sweet and patient and bribed him with cookies. So we have various photos in which he is obviously chewing, but at least he looked at the camera from time to time.

The company likes to print extras and try to convince you to buy them (which we never do) when you go pick up your order. It says something that the photographer said, "Oh, you can have just have these." Yikes.

Anyway, we are happy with them because we have something by which to remember our 2-year-old family of three (authentically, for sure) forever. And what fun would life be without a rambunctious little boy?

I remember when Noah was under 2 and I took him for his photos. He was doing great but the photographer had to change her memory card, and proceeded to leave her camera on a podium while it was attached with a cord to something. I saw Noah running toward the cord as I leaped after him. I didn't make it in time and the camera tumbled. I apologized profusely and told them I'd leave my info to pay for it. The photographer said it was dumb the company put a cord on the camera to begin with and almost acted like it wasn't the first time. I didn't have to pay for it but boy was I horrified.
