They sat him down on a little red table among some presents and tinsel and away we went.
Hmm... what's this shiny stuff?
Ahh... it makes a pleasing noise when I lift it up and down...
I like this box too. Why don't I bash it on the table to see if it opens...
My preccciioooooussss! (Gollum)
Huh? You're taking pictures of me?!
Can't you see I'm busy?
See? I'm showing you the pleasing noise this stuff makes when I lift it..
And it smells so good too.. wow.
OK. You can take my picture now.
But I'm not going to smile for you.
I'm far too busy for that..
Alright. Since you've asked 100 times..
One smile. But not at the camera.
P.S. Check out my bottom chompers!
As you can see, it was a lot of fun. I was proud of the way he sat up so nicely during the photoshoot and he has really found his balance now. It's a shame he couldn't engage more with the camera though! He's normally such a smiley baby but as he was so interested in the presents and the tinsel he was completely preoccupied and treating his sensory play like a very serious business indeed!
