The Wild & Wacky Faces of My Babies
Tomorrow my boy Wyndham turns 3 years old. I’m planning a serious Hot Wheels and Fort themed birthday party for the weekend, cake with family tomorrow night…all while wading through feelings of pride, joy and this slight melancholy ache.
He’s officially turning into a little boy, talking in full sentences, making (clever) jokes and tackling the potty. I’ve found myself day-dreaming of he and his sister’s newborn weeks and baby stages. All of the silly faces made, all of the milestones achieved. My babies might be growing up, but these pictures? I’ll always have them to enjoy.
Here are 24 guaranteed to make you smile too…
The Silly Faces That Babies Make...
Specifically mine. For an adorable chuckle, click through this collection of my babies during their first 18 months.
When She Was Wee
This is me having some fun copying the faces my daughter Abby was making when she was but a few weeks old.
You’d never know it from this picture, as you can see she takes the peek-a-boo business quite seriously.
The Look of Intense Anticipation
This picture was taken last summer while we were waiting in line to get on a train ride at a small amusement park. Clearly, she was excited.
The Face Reveals It All
My little guy when he was 17 months, giving something on the beach the serious stink-eye.
Such a little ham she is, giving the lens some love.
Oh, the CUTE!
Is there anything better than knit animal hats on babies (and children)? Nope, didn’t think so.
Attack of The Baby Reindeer
Poor, unfortunate Sophie met her demise many a time with Abby.
Looking a little more than confused here, a baby’s first year is such a great time to have some fun with the camera!
Giving Me What For
Hand on hip and all!
This one could be due to the lens being so close, but I’ll take it – so cute!
Looking a Little Mischevious
Abby at 8 months, showing signs of the little diva she would make out to be.
All Scrunched Up
Absolute perfection right here. THIS FACE. NOM.
Dapper & Inquisitive
One of my favourite things to do when my babies were smaller was to go for long, exploratory walks with them and let them take in and discover everything around them.
More Stink Eye
Wyndham has always been the best at going rogue with his looks. To. This. Day.
If we can’t squish our maleable babies’ faces, what do we have then?!?!
And blabbering, and yammering and drooling. All very excited about his very first beach trip.
Why is that babies are so fascinated with blowing spit bubbles?
Really giving me some attitude here. Hard to take serious, right?
Clearly done with passed around, wanting to get back to eating grass and rolling around in the dirt (taken at Wyndham’s first Folk Festival).
Pool Time Antics...
are always best had in the backyard with mamma’s feet tickling your belly.
But probably just wondering when they can get back into the pool! Or what the big black thing is in their face.
This is the look of a baby being dunked in a pool for their very first time.
Us mammas are SO weird.
Peas mamma? Really?! GROSS.
