Future math nerd.

Feb 15, 2013

So remember that time I spent all evening making props and getting two outfits + accessories ready for a certain someone's 1st birthday photo session? The session was a flop.

Not on my end. Not on the photographer's (my amazing and patient friend) end either.

It was all on my child.

The child who was in no mood to smile, no mood to sit still. She wanted to cry and flail around like a crazy who'd woken up too soon from her nap. (Oh wait, that's exactly what happened.)

I thought having her out in the sunshine and cool air would make her happy but nothing was making her happy.

Except for a calculator. That DAMN CALCULATOR.

Not sure why Ronnie gave that to her one time but since then she has become ub-sessed. Sure she plays with other toys but only for a little bit. At least until she remembers to look for her calculator.

Needless to say, the photos didn't quite turn out as I'd hoped but there's one that's my favorite...even if that DAMN CALCULATOR is front and center. I'm sure we'll look back on this many years from now and laugh.


For now, the outfits, the props and the smashing of a cupcake will have to wait until our rescheduled session next weekend.

Such is life with an almost 1 year old :)

Hope y'all have a fabulous weekend! Happy Friday!!

I'm cracking up. You wait until she is a famous mathematician-- this will be the photo ever one looks back on.

Rhonda said...

She is so stinkin' gorgeous!

That picture will be in her senior yearbook, when she's president of the Math Club.

And maybe one day she will be CFO of a large company and she will frame that pic in her office. :)

My kids love calculators too!

Omg, I love it! And if she ends up hating math, you can show her that picture and prove she was born for math! Ad if she loves it you have proof that it started at an early age :)

I love this! Of course I have a Master in math, so I may be a little biased. But still. I think it'd be ok with my if our future babies were calculator obsessed. Ha!

Miranda said...

that is the thing i hate about trying to plan a photo session with a child. you never know what mood they will be in! i hope the next one is better and can't wait to see the photos!

Christina said...

That is still such a cute picture! I hate that kids are so unpredictable! I remember Nolan being obsessed with my Weight Watchers calculator so I just gave it to him. (Because I was really using it :/). Now Milo plays with it all the time and answers it like a flip phone. Haha!

Sara McFall said...

Great picture! Hopefully she is ready to smile next weekend!
