The Lip

Recently, it was time to replace some of the photos in our picture frames with updated ones. I painstakingly went through the voluminous amounts of photos we have, sent them off for printing, picked them up, and left them laying around in the envelope long enough that Nate took it upon himself to change out some of the frames (hey it was over the holidays!) for me.

He placed the old photos on top of the envelope, and while I was going through them and looking at the new ones, I realized that I replaced this photo:

With this one:

I am a sucker for kids doing "the lip," as I refer to it; have been since Ethan was born and he did it in between cries while I held him in my arms for the very first time. I am also a sucker for putting up funny and real-life photos over the perfectly posed ones - not a fan of doing things the conventional way, in general.

Especially since with three kids, there is no such thing as a "perfectly posed" photo with ALL three of them in it.

Join in the fun on Facebook and Twitter!


  1. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who loves to see kids' sad and pathetic lips!!

  2. I want to favorite this, but I'm not on Twitter....

  3. We had two Santa photos this year: the test photo, and the pretty dress photo. The test photo went as expected. My normally happy, friendly, content to be held by anyone baby, FREAKED OUT. Full on cute pout with a save me mommy look. That is the one framed, not the sweet, smiling, pretty dress photo.

    1. Good, Denteen! Smiling, pretty dress photos are boring! I guarantee that the pouty one will get more laughs and smiles!

  4. Also, less-than-perfect pics can be used as "incentives" (bribery) later in life...
