Bump Is Totally Taking Her Next Time

Yesterday I brought Lula to get official photos taken in the sailor suit.

"Official" means go to the photo studio in a department store that rhymes with "beers" (but there is no beer there, don't you think that's just wrong?) and have some pimply-faced teenager who took a photography class two semesters ago push a button.

You know it's not going to go well when you see the "We're Hiring!" sign prominently displayed.

Look, I know, I know. If I want real pictures, I need to pay a real photographer to take them. But I'm cheap. And the photos of Lumpyhead in his kickass sailor suit were department store photos, so Lula's might as well be, too.

The grandmothers have been clamoring for Return of Sailor Suit, The Girl Version for quite some time. Do you think we should use the one with the hat:

or without?
Yeah, it was awesome. (Not.)

Lula was a wreck.

These are not just the bad photos from the session, they are the only photos from the session.

I suppose we'll try again in a couple of weeks.

I think you should have a caption contest for the pic sans hat.

I want to take "visiting the pediatrician with all three of them so they can all three get sick because everyone knows you get sick at the pediatrician's" off my job description.

Wanna swap?

There's an art to getting kids to relax enough for a good photo - and a really fast shutter speed probably helps too. We got our daughter's photos done professionally recently. It cost a bomb, but they're super-duper.

I feel your pain -- and Lula's.

But the Sailor Suit, girl version, is adorable.

I say use the one without. Send it to the rels with a note that starts with the phrase "Look at what you've done..." On second thought, maybe you could send it to our kids' grandparents, I think I have their addresses somewhere.

I vote for picture with hat. Let's work together to make wearing hats fashionable again, starting with your baby girl!!
