Say Cheese


Hank still hasn’t quite mastered the on-demand smile, so this is what you get when he notices a camera pointed his way. Actually, he usually says, “CHEEEEEEEEEEESE!” and then grimaces like he’s about to burst into tears, so this is progress.

    Ahh, the fake smile. That’s basically the only picture you’ll get for years.

    Play-doh! I can smell it :)

    LOVE your blog, but i miss the full feed! my heart broke when you switched to partial feeds. clicking through is tricky on mobile devices :|

  • Maggeh Says:

    @Helena, not sure what’s up with that. I never “switched,” it just happened one day. I hate partial feeds too. I’ll look into it again and see what I can do. Are you using Google Reader?

  • Karen Says:

    Maggie, he’s stinkin’ cute.

  • petya Says:

    This picture is ADORABLE! And those PJ’s: I want them for myself!!!

    I am with Helena on the partial feed. I follow your blog through Google Reader.

    i’m in google reader and it gives me just the partial feed. and sometimes when i try to click over i get a blocked webpage, but sometimes it lets me. super suck!

    My husband never grew out of that. In all of our wedding photos his eyes are closed (a la Hank’s in this photograph), but his mouth is contorted in this strange shape that makes it look like he’s in pain. Or, really, really constipated.

    Hank is so adoarable. And it is crazy how much all your posts remind me of my very own three year old little boy Clifford. I think Hank and Clifford could be best buddies. This is among one of the million reasons I love your blog.

    Also Google Reader, also partial feeds. :-(

  • Leah Says:

    I actually like the partial feeds, because then I get to see your very pretty page. I have you in my feed reader so that I know when to come visit.

  • Molly Says:

    Just found you from the Babble list. Enjoying your blog and this picture is oh so familiar…many a photo just like this has been taken at my house.

    Haha! Precious!

  • Abigail Says:

    The issue I have with the feed is that if your post starts with an image, I don’t even get a “teaser” of what it’s about (if that makes sense).

    I do love coming to the page, but usually wait til I’m on laptop rather than clicking through on my iPhone cause I don’t know if it’s going to be an embed slideshow or video or something else that’s best viewed on the big screen.

    Our kiddo had the same “grimace” when asked to smile! A photographer friend of ours suggested that he say “mozzarella” instead. It works!

    Now we scream “mozzarella!” instead of cheese :)

  • Meredith Says:

    Still adorable! My oldest had a squinty-eyed pained look we got for months. I like the “mozzarella” idea.
