Well, we did it! We went to see Santa today. And I'm still shocked that we got through it with no tears. Jacob loved every minute of it. Luke on the other hand was clinging to my neck so hard. His arms and legs were wrapped around me and his little head was laying on my shoulder. He wasn't about to get down near that big guy!
So I realized Luke sitting in Santa's lap wasn't going to happen. I was a little sad thinking the picture would be just of Jacob. You know how I like the traditions and the comparison pictures. So I then just tried to stand Luke next to Santa's chair, right near Jacob hoping that would help. At first he wouldn't let go of my hand and would just walk back towards me. THEN, the lady taking the picture somehow distracted him with a stuffed frog, long enough to stand still and smile for the picture...
2008- Jacob- 3 and Luke-11 months
2006- just heartbreaking- 14 months old
2005- sweet boy- 7 weeks old
As you can see I didn't even attempt Jacob's picture in 2007 when he was 2 years old. I knew it wasn't going to happen so I didn't even try. And notice it's the same Santa in each picture. Love our Santa, he's a good one!
