Yep. You guessed it - school picture time. In a complete role reversal, Luz seemed to love being the subject:
while James hated it:
So so very heart-breaking. He usually begs to have his picture taken, whereas Luz is much less interested. Consequently, when I opened the pictures I was quite surprised to see the results. Such a sad little dude. Christian wants him to have a retake session. I think retakes are a bit excessive, particularly for a baby. Retakes should be reserved for people caught with their eyes closed. I just think that if we are going to waste the photographer's time we need to consider how best those resources can be utilized. Perhaps there is a more pressing need:
I only mention it because this picture does very little to highlight how handsome he is...truly. There is something going on with the hair and the smile. You would think everyone in my house would know better than to use a closed mouth smile. I warn against it constantly (see the teethy grin in Exhibit A above).
While you are looking at the pictures, please let me know if/whether you think the kids look like Christian. I always wonder. It is tougher for me to tell since I see them every day. I only ask because someone (a Chinese lady) asked us if James was part Chinese on Saturday.
