It was a day filled with snuggles and laughter. An ordinary day in the Koehler household. Aiden was playing with his toys, pushing his new Mickey airplane. The sound of The Incredibles playing in the background. Then, Aiden turns to me with a silly grin on his face. He was in a playful mood. I ran and grabbed my camera. The usual occurred, as soon as I got the familiar object out and in his face the smiles disappeared. It wasn't unusual, typical Aiden behavior. Then, suddenly the smiles reappeared. I grabbed my camera for the second time, too late. He was too smart for my tricks. I decided to be patient. I held the camera up and talked to him. I made a doggy bark and the laughter started. I got it!!!! A smile! Successs.
Who knew doggie noises could be so funny?
Oh to be an 11 month old.....





To commerate this special occasion, I put his picture in one of my new Holiday Templates. I will be offering these this season and I am so excited to show them to you. As you can see, it is very versatile.

ps-for those of you that think I am strange for making a big deal out of a smile, this is the first smile I have gotten from him on camera. It's pretty exciting :)

Hugs to you!

Well, I guess you can expect your next smile shot in August 2008! Once every 11 months? He really plays hard to get! It is incredibly cute though.
