Baby Michael at 7 Months

Baby Michael has grown so much since last we met.  Unlike his sister Caroline, who has always been a silly camera ham, Michael might be more of an old soul the way he gazes curiously but confidently into the lens.  Like my son, Michael is afflicted with baby eczema, a painful condition that is especially prominent on those handsome young faces.  While it took a little extra photoshopping to erase the eczema from our memories, he didn’t seem too bothered by it the day I came.  Maybe it was the unseasonably warm day, which always seems to help.  From the overalls and bare feet, you would never have guessed that we took these photos outside on a February day here in Virginia!

Michael’s nursery has taken on some new additions since last I visited, including a painting by sister Caroline and super sweet canvas displays made by Auntie Carolyn:

I love this smiley photo of Michael with the teddy bear his dad played with as a little boy.

We got a little time in with Michael before Caroline came back from preschool and John came home for lunch for some family shots.  We tried to settle everyone down with a story time…

…which didn’t last very long…

So we decided to embrace the great outdoors and headed out for some silly family shots.

Caroline and Michael look so much like brother and sister, making it especially fun to repeat some of the photos from Caroline’s baby sessions for comparison.  Here Caroline looks like the quiet one and Michael looks like the ham!

I also like comparing these shots of John playing with both baby C and Baby Michael, both shots completely unprompted.  Talk about cuddle consistency!
