picture day

Today is “Fursday”…aka “school day” around our house. And this is a particularly special school day since it marks Sarah’s first official picture day. Would you believe she’s NEVER had a photo professionally done by anyone but me? The girl’s been gypped!

So today is her big chance to bring on the smiles for a professional but judging from the practice ones she was showing us at the breakfast table today, I’m not holding out hopes for a winner. Her “smile” these days is pretty hilarious!

But you guys know me and I couldn’t get her all dressed up without snapping a few shots of my own. That and the fact that I had my gestational diabetes test this morning so I needed to take my mind off of the fasting I had to do.

(Little FYI for those of you shopping mommies out there – I picked up this outfit at gymboree this week. They have an additional 20% off of any of their sale things and if you get their coupons in the mail you probably got another 20% off coupon…you can use BOTH! Children’s Place is having a 30% off of their sale prices sale too. Stock up!)

She is such a big girl! Love the dress and hat.

TerrySeptember 20, 2007 - 10:47 am

What a cutie! The school photographer can never compete!

KatherineSeptember 20, 2007 - 11:07 am

She is just so very cute.

beautiful pics, erin

MeganSeptember 20, 2007 - 12:38 pm

That is a lovely outfit. She looks so grown up. What funny thing do you do to make her smile like that in the next to last picture? Jeremiah usually acts like he is sneezing in my hair to get the girls to give big smiles.

meganSeptember 20, 2007 - 12:39 pm

Great photos! I can’t believe how grown up she looks.

DaphneSeptember 20, 2007 - 12:42 pm

I love the hat! Sorry I won’t get to see you on Saturday.

AmySeptember 20, 2007 - 3:18 pm

I’m sure your pics will be better than the “pro’s”

Sounds like we’ll be heading to Gymboree tomorrow!

I NEED to get A some clothes, thanks for the tip.

I suppose it goes against your professional oath to post the school photo, huh? I’d die to see it 😉

JenSeptember 20, 2007 - 6:57 pm

You amaze me!

SusieSeptember 20, 2007 - 7:30 pm

She’s a cutie for sure, but I was wondering if we get to see the mama’s belly updated??

Shana-LynnSeptember 20, 2007 - 7:46 pm

Your pictures are probably WAY better than anything they will be taking at her school.

JaniceSeptember 20, 2007 - 7:52 pm

Totally agree with the previous posters – I honestly don’t think the school pictures will compare to the ones you’ve taken!

This is terrible by the way, sales at Gymboree and TCP??? I might just have to stop over there this week. ;-D

StaceySeptember 20, 2007 - 7:52 pm

That first one…oh my goodness! So precious!

mandySeptember 20, 2007 - 8:08 pm

Sarah looked precious today in her school picture outfit! Very big deal! I’ll bet the photographer was shocked at how well she could perform for the camera…I mean, she is a model afterall!

SamanthaSeptember 21, 2007 - 5:59 am

I LOVED that dress, but you know, short sleeves, fall, New England. Doesn’t really work. I guess maybe you don’t have that problem?

Liz CSeptember 21, 2007 - 6:46 am

WOW! What a little model she is. Just precious.. Great pictures. Love the purple dress!

lyndsaySeptember 21, 2007 - 10:49 am

Love it! We always skip the pro pics at Ty’s school….in fact the form came home yesterday and Ty just put it straight into the trash – LOL! I can see it now, the photog will tell him to say “cheese” and he’ll say “we don’t say cheese”!

HEY. Can you believe I’m just now getting around to checking the blog! Thanks SO much for watching your niece and brining our niece to see US. We so loved seeing all of you. I can’t believe you handled an infant, a toddler, and your baby belly. You go super mom!

Hugs and Kisses all around!!!

Hey there! I dunno if you remember me from Donoho, but I saw your site on Daphne’s page; and Rachel had mentioned your little cutie in a Gap ad. What a beautiful little girl!!! Wonderful site, I have enjoyed it very much. Looks like all is well! 🙂

I’ll be anxious to hear how her school pictures turn out.

carolSeptember 22, 2007 - 12:32 pm

what a great set of pictures. Sarah is such a great and cooperating subject. by the way I forgot to send the surprise items to you my email is moyer0906@cs.com. FYI in some magazines there is a coupon for 20% off a $50 purchase at children’s place (I work part time there – so I spend ALOT of money there) which you can use in addition to the 30% off sale. Happy shopping.

carolSeptember 22, 2007 - 12:34 pm

P.S. erin – I guess the reason I game you my email is so you can send me your new address (when you talk about sales I get a rush to think of how much money I can save!!!)
