Calder is one Dopey Dwarf

About a year and a half ago we payed a visit to the local Kiddie Candids to get Calder's picture taken. Needless to say, we were none to pleased with the way things were going and the photos were not going to be the adorable glamor shots that we had hoped. Then, magic happened...

The girl "accidentally" shot this gem of a shot while Calder was goofing around and we loved it. She giggled and wanted to trash it, but we were having none of that. We had seen Calder make this silly face hundreds of times to make us laugh, but he would never do it on cue. To capture this moment at Kiddie Candids was a miracle and we ordered dozens of these. It captured (and still captures) his goofball personality perfectly.

A large version of this photo now sits on our hutch as you walk in our door. We put it there because once you see it, you just can't help but have a smile on your face. Calder has not made this face in a long time, but thank goodness that we now have it captured for all time on the Blog O' Cheese.

Yes, that is a classic photo. I love it! You're right, you can't help but smile when you see this picture.

Ryan also has a classic "portrait" moment...I'll have to post on that soon. His was even displayed at Target for awhile for everyone to see!
