Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I can say with complete honesty that I was SHOCKED that we had any decent pictures -- at all -- to post on the blog. Our photo session was perhaps one of the worst ever. At least it was one of the worst in recent times. I bought those hats the same day I bought the Valentine's Day outfits, and I had a vision in my head of how adorable all these babies would look all lined up wearing their little hats. I even thought that the babies might actually enjoy the precious hats! Well, reality was quite different. . . .

One of the babies NICU nurses, Ann (or Auntie Ann as we've started calling her), was at the house the night we attempted the photo shoot. At one point she said that she had no idea that so much went into taking our pictures for the blog. Well, not that much usually goes into it -- we usually dress the babies up, sit them somewhere (usually leaning back on me with a blanket to hide me), snap some group and individual pictures for about 5 minutes, then we're done. What happened the night we took these St. Patrick's Day pictures was just short of torture for the babies. Auntie Ann, for now, has promised not to turn us into Child Protective Services. The following pictures are a more accurate portrayal of how the photo session really went:

Piper, uncharacteristically, was the happiest of the three babies to wear her hat. Here are a couple of individual pictures of her:

And here's Henry:

And here's Rosemary, who was by far the least happy baby of the night:

HAHAHA! Love it! I really love the one with Piper and Rosemary looking at each other. It is like they are planning something devious. So cute!

OMG Heather - those are the funnies pictures I have seen in a long time. I love Rosemary (I think) with the hat over her whole body! That is hysterical. Thanks for the sweet updates and pictures to put smiles on all of our faces.
