Cille's 6 Month Portraits

On the day that Stella turned 6 months old, Damon and I took her to Portraits by Susie here in LaPlace and subjected her to a grueling hour of coaxing and cajoling in a daring attempt to keep her from crying and achieve the perfect 6 month photo.  The result of this gargantuan effort was one beautiful shot that we had to have a toy chicken digitally removed from.  When the 6 month mark approached for Cille, I called Susie, but she was already booked up.  I resigned myself to the fact that we would not be able to do the photos on the specific day, which was really kind of what I was expecting, since it was the day before Christmas Eve.  The day before it was time for me to go back to school, I finally took the girls into town and we went to Sears for Cille's pictures...
Poor Stella really did not understand why Cille was getting her picture taken and Stella was not.  I explained as best I could, and promised Stella next time would be her turn.  She was a very good helper for me and the photographer, and I think most of these smiles were aimed right at big sister...
Cille is such a happy baby and has such a sweet disposition that the photographer really had an easy job...
Since we waited a few days after the 6 month mark, she was also sitting up on her own...

She loves to smile!
It was hard to choose just one pose, which made me super glad that Sears was running a special and I was able to get the CD of all the images for 30 bucks!  Score!
This is the photo that we had printed.  I love my brown-eyed girl!
