I really hate to say this, but I am not a fan of these pictures. They didn't turn out well at all. It was very early on Saturday morning, I was tired, Avery was tired, and I was trying to take these pictures quickly, as I knew that very soon, the house would be overtaken by 6 kids under 10 and I wouldn't be able to take them at all.
One kid did manage to distract her, but I liked her face, so I kept it!
I couldn't find a good blanket for a background, but here is the best one of the bunch.
Now this picture, I do love. This is SO her position lately. Up on that one leg, just about to take off. So this picture, I do love.
I made a promise to myself before Avery was born that I wasn't going to keep retaking pictures of memories, only to find the right one. And when I did her "month" pictures, I said, no matter what or how bad pictures turned out, this is her, on this day and it's a memory I want to remember. So, here they are. I mean, they are ALWAYS beautiful - she just can't take a bad picture as far as I am concered!!!
Happy 8 Month Birthday, Avery. You are SUCH a big girl now. By next month, I bet I won't be able to keep you in one spot!
