Oh Baby! Smile for the Camera

The topic for the 7th edition of the Smile for the Camera! Carnival on footnoteMaven's Shades of the Departed blog is "Oh, Baby! Show us those wonderful family photographs of babies, or those you've collected."

This father and grandfather has collected a lot of pictures, but finding pictures of each child and grandchild by him or herself was a challenge. I wanted to pick photos from when they were about one year old, so that they were still babies, but their facial and body features could be shown. I almost succeeded. Here is my proud father and grandpa's gallery of little darlings.

Leading off is my two daughters - Tami (born October 1976) and Lori (born May 1974), taken in May 1978:

Lori has two little boys. Lucas was born in September 2003, this picture was in October 2004:

Logan was born in February 2006, this picture is from December 2006:

Tami has two little girls. Lauren was born in February 2005, this picture is from May 2006:

Audrey was born in February 2008, this picture is from August 2008:

We managed to get all four of them together in August 2008, but getting them to smile nicely was a challenge. From the left: Lauren (age 3.5), Logan (age 2.5), Audrey (age 0.5) and Lucas (age 4.9):

Those are my progeny to date. I am so blessed! They are so much fun to love, play with, read to, and snuggle with. They owe their good looks and good hair to their mothers, I think.
