Does every toddler go through an “impossible to photograph” stage?
I mean, I know I’m not a professional, he’s 17 months old, it was just after dinner and just before bed, the lighting was tungsten, we were in our 900 sq feet, he has a diaper rash (thus no diaper) and I strapped him into some (albeit adorable) felt wings and wool beanie for some “quick snapshots” to send to the little bird costume customer…but puh-lease, can’t I get just ONE good one? Apparently not:)

At least the wings and beanie are darling, right? Cross those off the list!
Actually, I really do like how much my recent photos of Milo reflect the whirlwind of energy that he has. He is nonstop. I wonder where he gets that? I almost dressed him up to take to the park and try again for some better ones today, but, the costume is going in the mail anyway. I’ll spend that extra time and energy when he’s in his own costume this year. A monkey costume. Fitting, right?
