So I'm the horrible mom who didn't get my third child's pictures taken until she was 13 1/2 months. I have lots of excuses, of course, but in the end they fall a little flat, and I'm very mad at myself for not doing it sooner.
It was a little bit more complicated with Maddy. The night before I pulled her feeding tube and all the tape (except for the oxygen), so that her cheek wouldn't be red in the morning. In the morning, I put the tube back in, with just an eensy-weensy bit of tape. End result? Her cheek was still red. Oh, well. I knew that might happen, but if I would have waited til after her surgery, when she wouldn't have a feeding tube/tape to deal with, she would have scars on her belly from the Nissen procedure and g-tube placement, not to mention casts to her hips to correct her (adorable) feet. It's all about trade-offs, I guess. I took the oxygen off for her pics, and she stayed a nice healthy pink. I'm sure her SATs were dropping a bit, but she wasn't laboring to breathe, so I just left it off.
Anyway, we got some awesome pics! These are just the orginals, but Sears zoomed or cropped where necessary to make them even cuter!
