"Hey, Mommy, wanna go cruising?"
"I'll catch you later!"
"Scarlett, did you want to come or not?"
This may be my favorite from the shoot.
I love this smile. Desmond has always had such big, wide mouth smiles to go along with his easy going personality.
I can't believe how big he looks in these pictures!
I don't know who thought these tricycles were more fun, Scarlett or Desmond.
"That's right everybody, I'm 1 now."
Scarlett took 18 months before swings were acceptable to her, but Desmond has always loved swings.
Isn't she so precious looking in this picture?
She always wants to be pushed "higher"...
Poor little guy was pretty tired. I had to do jumping jacks and many other crazy antics to get him to smile or look in certain directions. Obviously, in this shot I was unsuccessful.
And in this shot.
I more surprised him and less entertained him in this shot.
There's a smile!
Now, he just looks annoyed.
"Seriously, how long do I have to sit in this hot sun watching you act like a fool, Mom?"
We let him walk around, which he found more enjoyable. I love these.
I love this cute, pensive look.
There's another big smile.
In this picture, Desmond had just completed some "dirt angels" while face down on the ground...hence why his mouth is covered in dirt. Scarlett would never have done something like that at any point in her life...I feel certain of that.
One more dirty face picture for you to enjoy. These are soo cute, too. I really wish his face was clean. I was trying believe me, but I needed more than wipes to scrape off this sticky mid-day dirt.
"I wanna climb these, too!"
Scarlett "teaching" Desmond to climb.
We'll try it again in another few months.
We grabbed a few more of Scarlett.
Going super fast down the slide
She's got climbing in her blood...from her Daddy.
This is very serious stuff. Also, very nerve wracking to watch her climb to the top.
Finally, this little montage! We love you Desmond! Thanks for all of the smiles and baby giggles!
