Sometimes we dress our little ones in fancy clothes and get special hair cuts for photo day. We tell them to not play in dirt to keep their face clean and to not make that silly face.
I say play in dirt and make that silly face. I think shaggy hair looks adorable and no clothes is better than fancy ones. Often my favorite photos are when I am not trying to get the perfect photo. Tonight I was dressing my littlest for bed and put some warm socks under his pajamas since it is going to get a little chilly here in the midwest. I looked down and saw the cutest, chubbiest little legs I have ever seen.
Simple is best. Simple is usually what is real.
