for Spartaaaaaa!

>> Tuesday, November 10, 2009

In my hospital bag, I packed a length of black velvet, so we could take photos of Little Man's very first days.

You have to understand - both the Hubby and I are pretty nuts about photography. (In case you're not a friend on Facebook and haven't been subjected to our hundreds of baby pics already...) So we didn't want to let the early days go undocumented.

The other prop I brought to the hospital was this massive green stuffed frog. It belonged to the Hubby back in high school. I first met the Green Frog during Men's Dorm Open House, back in college. So the Green Frog has been around for a while.

And since frogs and monkeys (green and brown) are the animals of choice for Little Man's nursery, we necessarily needed to have a newborn photograph with the Green Frog.

I was planning something innocent, sleepy and sweet. The kind of photo that makes you go "awwww!" Maybe with Little Man draped over Green Frog's back, all limp and adorable.

You know, something kind of like this:

But it didn't quite work out that way. Instead, we got this:
And this:

Slightly more 4-day-old impersonation of Gerard Butler's Spartan warrior character in "The 300" than innocent sleepy baby.

Hmmm... wonder what this portends?
