Well, it’s that time again! Oliver is 20 weeks old today, and since Grayson’s 20 week comparison picture has been pinned almost 150,000 times on Pinterest, I figured I’d do it again with Oliver! Only I made it look a little better this time. A bare chest and a black background make the comparison that much better! So without further ado, I give you Oliver’s 20 week comparison picture. 20 weeks in my belly, and 20 weeks out!
The other day, the sun was in the perfect spot in our backyard to take some photos of my boys. Of course Oliver was the perfect model and looked at the camera and smiled, or at least looked pleasant. Grayson, on the other hand, was another story….as you will see.
This is how it typically goes whenever I try to take nice pictures of Grayson.
Me: “Hey, Grayson!”
“Can you smile for Mommy, or do you want to blow some bubbles?”
Grayson: “Buppmmmm!!” (bubble!)
Then he made several attempts at blowing bubbles.
But this was how he was blowing. Probably not going to get the best results when your mouth is only open a tiny slit.
“Look I got some bubbles on my hand!” (Or at least I think that’s what he would say if he could talk.)
“Eww! It’s so slimy!!!”
“Let me try again. Maybe if I close my eyes it’ll help.”
“Ok, it’s not working. I’m gonna go play with my car!”
“Grayson, can we take a quick picture now?”
“Ok, you get one smile, but it’s only going to be for a split second, so you better have a quick trigger finger. Oh, and I’m also not going to stand with the pretty sun in the background.”
“Thanks ok, my darling. I’ll take what I can get!”
And here’s my other photogenic son, who hasn’t yet gotten tired of having my camera in his face.
Oliver is 12 weeks old, and Grayson is FINALLY starting to enjoy being around him! Whenever I set Oliver on his mat for tummy time, Grayson will come over and lay down next to him. It’s the sweetest thing! I’m so glad that the jealousy is (for the most part) over. I can’t wait until they can interact more and more!
Here are a couple pictures I took of them a couple weeks ago. It was the first time Grayson allowed me to place Oliver right next to him without getting upset and moving away.
