There are 3,000 photos on my iPhone. With Ben smiling in it? Maybe 0.001%.
Benjamin is a happy baby but when you see his pictures, you wouldn’t think he is. He looks at the camera in that pensive kind of way. He stares at it and the idiot who always make funny stunts and high pitched voice desperate to make him smile.
Most of the time, the smiles come from the people around me. I know I look silly trying so hard.
It’s HARD to get a good picture of toddlers, and you can’t expect the perfect eye-contact and a cherubic smile every time you try. Some days it just doesn’t happen. The “some days” somehow became everyday.
I have given up on trying to make him smile for the camera.
But last night, I attempted again and … it happened.
He stared, eased up, looked at my face and copied it. Bless.
Here are some great suggestions on how to get your toddler to smile for the camera. I will definitely use some soon!
Oh and just to show how it is very easy to make him laugh – only takes a finger and I’m not even tickling him!
(Just ignore my random talking. Ok, thanks, bye!)
