Pictures with Grampa

After Maggie and Cassie were born, we tried to get my dad to have pictures done with them. Lino's parents had some done, and I wanted to get some with my dad. He wouldn't do it. I didn't push, because when my dad makes up his mind about something, there really isn't any way to change it.

One of the Christmas gifts I did was matching shirts for my dad and Nate. My dad is a younger brother with 2 older sisters, and he is always saying that I don't let Nate do stuff because he is a little brother, too. My dad is really tough to buy gifts for, and Lino and I thought that the shirts would be really cute.

Well, my dad brought up getting pictures in the shirts done, so we made an appointment. Unfortunately, Nate was a bit resistant (ok, he cried a lot) but before he started crying we got a couple of pictures that turned out okay. And, I also had my dad do a picture with Maggie and Cassie (finally)

Here is what we got:

Those are adorable! I'm still in love with Nate's curls!

And I hope you don't mind, but I copied and pasted the last picture into my photo ideas file. I love that pose! I might try it out with my little ones today if Trey would stay posed like that!

Cool! And yeah, Nate's curls are just adorable. Glad your dad finally agreed to have his picture taken. :o)

Thanks girls! I did trim Nate's bangs a couple of weeks ago, just a bit!

Melissa, that last pose was supposed to have Nate in it, sitting on Cassie, but he was having no part of pictures. Absolutely use the pose!

Doreen, thanks! I am glad my Dad wanted pics, too!
