They also hold still long enough to let me get a picture without making a face. Bonus. So while they were playing, I pulled out the old camera and set about snapping like the best of 'em (well not really like the best of them at all but a reasonable facimile thereof). Because I might look a little freakish hanging multiple photos of someone else's kids in my house, I am going to post them here. So not the same thing, right? RIGHT?
Here, Alex is laughing hysterically at his big brother (Oh yes, Logan and Hannah were also here, the twins older siblings - they, however, do not hold still for photos). There is nothing like the belly laugh of a baby. Nothing.
Kidding, like I didn't have both hands on her the whole time (neurotic, yes I am), we kept them in to save them from the blood sucking parasites, aka mosquitoes. And I know what you are thinking, "you could deny that adorable face?" What can I say? Heart of stone over here.
This one was really hamming it up for the camera. This just shows how different their personalities are. Alex is all about the hamming. Rachel, the climbing. Hamming fits perfectly with the camera, climbing not so much because it requires both of my hands on her, at all times. Ain't no broken bones happening on my watch!
