I just so happened to see a post in a moms group that I’m in on Facebook that was asking for volunteer babies 6-8 months to model for a photography class. The photographer teacher wanted kids who could sit for an extended period of time, but wouldn’t crawl around. Perfect. While Alexander can crawl, he doesn’t really know how to get out of a seated position without a lot of thought and effort. So I emailed the photographer and offered up my little model. In return for our twenty minute session (there was a second baby there too), we were promised to get a few of the best photos emailed to us. Win-win, right? The teacher said I was welcome to bring my camera too.
Mr. A was in a serious mood and didn’t offer up many smiles (I think maybe he was cold – it suddenly was 50 degrees out after being in the 80s the day before.) After our 20 minute session, we headed back to our neck of the woods for the Taste of Tucker. Tucker, where we live, doesn’t offer up much in the way of culinary delights, but I had a couple of decent dishes.
We stayed for maybe two hours. It was a lot more crowded than we anticipated, but we still had a good time. Plus also, this:
Today, we had lunch with some friends that have a 5-month old and then grocery shopped at Trader Joe’s.
And now, I’m making muffins for a breakfast meeting tomorrow at work. It’s at 8:30 (for no reason). I work 9-6. And did I mention that Alexander’s starting a new daycare tomorrow and I’m totally flustered about it? Yeah, not getting to work at 8:30. But maybe the muffins will make up for it.
