We decided to go to the neighbor's house for a little while yesterday. Dave got Aviana all ready, and then, I thought she looked so cute ~ I decided to swipe her outfit idea too. I guess Avi wasn't thrilled about it. Maybe she didn't like the fact that her mom copied her. Maybe she was mad because she couldn't say anything to me about it, but hey ~ I'm really not sure. I decided I wanted pictures in our matching outfits. Bad idea.
Again, we had a terrible photo shoot.
I can never figure it out. Is it me, or the brain injury?
First, we tried the chair. She's so floppy, yet rigid. I never know how to hold her for a picture, and get this....I'm her mom! Doesn't she look comfortable?
That's us...having a little pep talk. She doesn't like when we have those.
Maybe I should reconsider. They're very nice, but maybe I should skip it. I don't see Roger or my Mom having those sorts of things.
Then we tried the couch, with a pillow under her. She's bored and I'm a contortionist who's now wearing a plastic smile. Yea us! Making progress.
Dave was trying to stop Rainey from jumping up, but why not, right? What can it hurt!
Oh good...Avi is still less than thrilled and now Rainey is thinking about taking a snooze before she goes swimming in the neighbor's pool! I'm dreaming of Calgon at this point.
Finally, it's headlock time. This is my best way to keep that floppy head in place and talk. She usually responds and loves this, but not today. She's done with me, done with the camera....
Or, maybe....just done with me stealing her white pants and orangey colored stripped shirt with tiny pocket in the top lefthand corner? Hey girl ~ I wanted to put my hair in a ponytail too...but I didn't!
I'm sorry my love.
I said I was sorry.
I did end up changing shortly after these pictures, but not because of Avi, but because wet dogs and white pants don't go well together.
As for my age old question ~
Me or the brain injury?
It's not a question.
I know the answer.
