These have been sitting on my camera for a week now…time to get them posted so that we (hopefully) don’t have a constant week lag for portraits!
Because I was gone a good chunk of the weekend of Mother’s Day, and was going to be gone for the entire next weekend, my Mr. took a couple extra days off of work to spend together as a family before I headed to Pittsburgh for Quilt Market. R’s hair had been getting rather shaggy and was always getting in his eyes, and both G and my husband’s hair were in need of trims as well, so we decided to take a family trip to the barber.
Luckily, not long after the haircut started, he got startled by a large truck passing by outside and stopped crying. It occurred to us that if we could keep him interested enough in what was going on out the door, he’d probably be a happier camper.
So G and I headed outside the building and played peekaboo with him through the window. Which mostly consisted of me repeatedly lifting 40-some pound G over my head. Huzzah for aerialist arms.
It did the trick. He went from sobbing to smiling by the time his hair was done.
