Stella's Almost 2 Pictures

Yesterday, Stella and I took advantage of our last day of Mardi Gras break to visit one of our favorite summertime hot spots: the Sears Portrait Studio. I found a coupon on the bathroom floor that was only a little soggy from Stella's last bath/splashfest, and we renewed our friendship with the Sears staff and reminded them why they hate us: we don't fall for the sales pitch. The first pose is the one I chose to have printed... For wardrobe, we chose Stella's birthday dress from last year. Hey, it was an 18 month size and somehow she escaped ever having her portrait taken in it until now. Not really sure how that happened...
Stella was actually coming down with an ear infection during this session, so she is usually a lot more cooperative. Whereas she LOVED having Dara tickle me during her Christmas photo shoot, she screamed at the Sears photographer when she tried to tickle me. My guess is that it had something to do with the poor girl's lack of a handsome assistant...
I loved this one, but wanted to see that smocked birthday cake, so I turned it down...
Such a sweet baby...er, I mean, toddler...(sniffle, sob)And finally, 2 going on 12, the attitude, hand-on-her-hip shot. Thank goodness she learned how to put her hand on her hip in gymnastics class!

We'll soon be preparing Stella's birthday party invites, so get excited! More photos coming soon!

I love her. Makes me want to cry looking at her little pictures.
