They Can Drive You Crazy

As I've posted before, taking pictures of my grandchildren can be frustrating. I can't get her to acknowledge the camera, and I can't take a candid of him because he has to react to it each and every time.

Yesterday, I just wanted a simple picture of him intently watching a dvd on my computer as he munched his lunch. You see, he is so disinterested in eating these days, that I find it easiest to distract him with a video or Sesame Street on tv.

I wanted to show how he put cheerios (in this case — you can see them on the tray in the second picture) into his mouth, hardly realizing what he was doing because he was so intent he was on the program. Needless to say, the pictures prove that he chose to play to the camera rather than staying glued to the video.

Kids! They get you every time.

Actually I think you got lucky AC! I love that hair! My Sarah is eight now and has reached the stage where every time I want to take a photo of her, she runs away or covers her face. Needless to say, I have very little photos of her at the age of eight!
Love Di ♥

I love his hair!

My boys used a booster seat with tray just like that. I liked it so much better than a high chair.
