Smocked jon jons, peter pan collars & knee socks... Oh My!
Last year, the boys had their pics taken with a live bunny at school-- but I dreamed of having "real" Easter portraits done. I felt like Jack was too little last year, so we put it off... and I didn't think about it again, until our photographer emailed me a few weeks ago to let me know that she was doing some Easter mini sessions with chicks, bunnies and a lamb and wanted to know if I was interested. Ummm, yeah!
The boys are at an age where they won't really pose-- but they were so sweet and cute with the animals & I'm SO glad we did this session. These are some of the shots I took-- I can't wait to see what Lauren got!!
It's rare that the boys get super dressed up, but when they do, I melt into a big old puddle of southern mommy.
Last year, we bought these sweet matching baby blue gingham jon jons with smocked bunnies (complete with pom pom tails!) and the boys wore them for Easter. I'm pretty good about buying outfits after the holidays (for 50%+ off!) and putting them up for the next year-- but for some reason, last year I didn't.
Not wanting to spend a ton of money on new outfits, I crossed my fingers and tried these on the boys last week. Miraculously, they fit even better now than they did last year! You'll laugh-- at 16 months old, Jack is rocking a 3m size jon jon and Liam, at almost 2 1/2, fits perfectly into his 18m size! It can be tough for me to fit them sometimes, but (short) jon jons work so well for us, because there's no waist and I don't have to worry about the length.
I need to find a new pair of shoes for Liam (poor kid squeezed into a pair two sizes too small for these pics), but other than that, we're ready for Easter!
