Monday Mugs - Self Portrait

Squeaking in under the wire to join in with Oswald Cuties for a fun week of photos.  (Hey, it’s Monday for a few more hours before I catch some winks… that counts for something, right?)

 

 

This week’s theme is Self-Portrait.  Yech.  Truthfully – I’d much rather be at the business end of a lens!  Those of you who have kept up with Itty Bit for awhile know that he is quite the little wiggleworm when it comes to photos nowadays.  Which is why I cherish this one sitting still shot.

I may or may not have bribed him by promising to open the curtains for him to watch the street sweeper that was coming ;)

And I apologize for borrowing from the previous photo post, but here is the other typical Rachel self-portrait:

Anyone else remember the end result of inadvertently being between two bickering horses at feed time?

 

Thanks Oz, for letting us have a fun way to start off the week!  Are you brave enough to link up with your own shots? :)

Ah, the good ole street sweeper bribery! I have to bribe Daisy with candy cuz she is TERRIFIED of any noisey outdoor vehicles!
And, hey, it is still Monday! Definitely not too late. Thanks so much for linking up, girlie!

Awesome pics! I wish I looked so good after being in the middle of two bickering horses or even just on a regular day haha. I so love that Itty Bit still has that mischievous grin. Love it. Seriously. By the way, your apron kit came today and the ric rac matches oh so prettily!! Can't wait to get started! Chris thought it was so awesome that you picked that material for an apron.

You are so beautiful Rachel! Love the pic of you and Itty Bit.

That is a great shot of you two! I know how hard it is to get a "nice" shot with the kids. They tend to either ham it up or go all "cheese" smile on you. This is a really nice one though! :)

I too, love to be BEHIND the camers.. but if I were as beautiful as you, I would get over it!!!.. Great shot of you and itty bitty... and it is not bribery, it is "positive rewards" not that i would EVER parent in that manner! :P

That first picture is really precious. You've both got sweet smiles and look like you enjoy each other. So was it a tripod shot? self-timer, or a husband or friend shot? It's hard to remember to have pictures taken of myself from time to time. I have bazillions of my children, but I'd just as soon not be photodocumented anymore.

Amy said...

Awwwwwwwwwww you two together is freaking adorable!!!!!!! He is sooooo CUTE!!!!! And can I just say, I am totally jealous about your incredibly wonderful dimples!

I don't think I would have stayed muddy long enough for someone to take a picture! I am not a fan of being dirty! But you know, you make that mud look good! LOL

Love your self portraits! I am totally with you on liking to be on the other end of the lens though ;-)

I love the self-portraits. I was meaning to do this today and since I was going on a fieldtrip w/Nolan I figured today would be a good day because my hair would be fixed, make-up, good clothes. Yeah, not so much. I woke up 20 minutes late because my phone was in my purse in the foyer and I use the alarm on it to wake in the mornings. I was not looking so cute for the fieldtrip.

Heather said...

you are a cutie!!!

Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

Tiffany said...
