Twins' 8 month photo shoot

We got the babies' 8 month pictures taken last night and we, of course, think they turned out adorable. Leah showed her true colors during the shoot and had a few melt downs, but she was super happy at the beginning and we took most of her pictures first while she was all smiles. She was quite the ham before the tears came. She is one emotional little girl- either all smiles or crocodile tears! Lexi was super sweet the whole time- she always looks very pleasant, but harder to coax the cheesy grins out of, like we get often from Leah.

Be warned- there are LOTS of pictures- with two beautiful babies, I had to put up more than just a few (ok, 35 to be exact).

I didn't realize until this photo shoot that Lexi has no neck- just a pumpkin head sitting right on her shoulders...

We could not get Lexi to stop eating the grass and dirt. She was drooling mud after a few minutes into the shoot. We gave her this flower as a prop and she, of course, ate it!

As emotional as this little princess is, we sure love her. Her little grin just melts my heart.

This is where she was being really cheesy- sure made for some cute pictures.

Our little Leah is very photogenic

Our next photo shoot will be at one year- this summer will go by too fast, I know, and they will be big girls. I wish I could stop time in this moment- they are so fun right now. Thank goodness for cameras and video cameras so I can at least capture some of the magic these two babies bring into our home. A picture really is worth a thousand words- 2 thousand words when you have twins!

So sweet! I love the one of Lexi with the flower and Leah's big grin. I want a photo shoot next week, too. Grandma and Papa with all the grandkids. You could get rich if only Amanda and I were paying customers.
