First Official Photo Shoot ( a la Mommy and KK)

This morning we attempted what we had feared might be the NEAR impossible... photographing BOTH kiddos... TOGETHER... in coordinating outfits! We were hopeful... FULL of bribes and prepared to strike as MANY deals with Caden as we might need to in order to get just ONE pic... JUST one!

The first attempt was PITIFUL... full on drama King... did NOT want to take a picture. Not even for the promise of a surprise...

So we photographed our little lady...

And I told Caden that I didn't want any pictures of him... (harsh I know, but I didn't if he was going to act like he was acting...)

And then KK promised immediate gratification in the form of M&Ms... we were getting closer...

And poor Kaki just couldn't take it ANY more... "give me a BREAK Caden... it's NOT that HARD to look cute... at least not for me! Stand still and SMILE for CRYING OUT LOUD!!! :)"
Reverse psychology and M&Ms and a little peer pressure... and we got these...




And then... CADEN WAS DONE! And we captured my FAVORITE picture of the day!! If this isn't the reality of life with a newborn and a toddler I don't know what is...

We did take SEVERAL more pictures in different outfits of Miss Kaki-Pants, but I don't want to spoil the BIG reveal in her birth announcement so I will just leave you with one... that concluded our shoot for the morning...

Looking so cute can be awfully hard on a girl...

Wouldn't you agree?!

Happy Friday!!

No one knows the cuteness that exists in those two!! Even when Mr. Caden is a toot he is still cute and of course Miss Kaki pants is just plain gorgeous!! Miss you guys so much!!
