It takes a lot of pictures to get a few good ones! I am going to share a little secret with you...

It can be extremely challenging at times to have a child with a floppy head. We couldn't get her to look up for this picture.

As you can tell by my expression, I was starting to get a little frustrated because I was roasting to death and we really needed to get going. My mom said, "Just grab her ponytail." Dave and I have done it many times before and sadly, will have to do it many more times to come. 

Can you see my left arm behind her head? I am firmly gripping her ponytail and trying to find just the right position for the picture.

I was not doing too well with my left hand, so I tried my right.

She looks so annoyed with me in this picture...and rightfully so!

I lost it again. I had no choice but to hold it tighter.

Poor Miki.

Finally, I decided another position might be better.

She seemed happier to not have me yanking on her hair. She said she wished she was bald again at the beginning of the photo shoot.

I love her sweet little face in this one.

Finally, this seemed to result in the best positioning for both of us. She was comfortable and starting looking around at all of the presents.

Sometimes it's all smoke and mirrors.

* Please note - no small children were actually hurt in the taking of this photo *


  1. love the photo shoot!!!!!
    and i feel your pain! ....really! i do. :)

  2. Photo frustration is the worst! The pics are so cute though!

  3. I love all the pictures of you and Avi! You look so happy and she can feel that energy! Have a wonderful Christmas! Please say hello to Dave and your parents!


  4. I've had many babies that needed velcro on the backs of their heads. Maybe you could figure out a solution to your spare time.

    Those are some mighty sweet pics!
