Our little model!

We have been so busy with so many things lately. I can't believe that I haven't already blogged about this though, as we were quite excited about the opportunity.

My sister works for a children's clothing designer in the Raleigh area. They publish a catalog of their clothes twice a year. Last September, she asked us if Michael wanted to be a model in the catalog but we were going on vacation so we missed out. When it came time to shoot the Fall 2008 catalog, she asked us again if we would like to have Michael model in the catalog. So of course, we jumped at the chance to do it. We thought it would be a neat experience and something to have in Michael's baby book, which is only about half full.

The photo shoot was on a Friday in March and we got to see the proofs before the catalog was assembled. The photos were taken to show off the clothes but the photographer was able to capture Michael's personality as well. He looks so mischievous in the Christmas photo, like he is stealing a present from under the tree. In the other picture, he looks kind of bashful, which he was during the photo shoot at first.

I don't know how to post the catalog directly into this post so I will just put the link to the catalog here if you want to see our little model. He is on pages 15 and 48.

We are so proud of his modeling debut. A special thanks to Aunt Michelle and Chez Ami!!

Michael's New Glasses

Almost a month has gone by since my last post. So much has happened that I want to blog about but it just seems like there never is enough time. We always have so many things going on and if I could compose a blog post in my head while in the car, my blog would be full of entries!

Michael went for his opthalmologist appt last month and he needed to get glasses. He is nearsighted and the glasses will help him to see better and hopefully strengthen his eyes as he gets older. We went on his birthday to pick out a pair of frames and just got the finished product (with ear pieces to keep them on) on Thursday. He looks like such a little man when he wears his "sasses". He loves that he has them like Daddy does and knows that Daddy puts on his glasses when he gets up so we are trying to do that with Michael. He has worn them to daycare for 3 days so far and all is well there, which I was worried about. I do think that his eyes tend to get tired of wearing them and adjusting to them so we try to work with him on giving him breaks if he wants them. He is wearing them more and more each day though and I love how he looks!

Here are some pictures of our little man with his "sasses":

Now that he has his glasses, we watch him with delight as he explores the world around him like never before. It is truly amazing!
