Funny Faces

These are the photos of Louisette that I find funny – often just because of her facial expression. Only the birthday cake photo was posed – the rest just happened.

0-1 month:

img_0014No! Not without makeup on!

img_0015

Ninja baby only pretends to sleep.


img_0018

Fart face.

img_0031

What on EARTH is that pink flailing thing, and why is it following me?!?

img_0038

The eternal, “Huh?”

1-2 months:

Image

Mmm, tasty.

img_0009

Mwa haha! They’ll never catch me!

img_0014

Suspicious baby.

img_0030Oh no! They’re on to me!

img_0018

Okay, this one was posed (or was it?)

416907_10150737861265242_826052280_n

I respectfully disagree.

2-3 months:

img_0018And this one (the hard part is always getting the zip done up, am I right?)

img_0002_11That bag was a lifesaver while travelling (it’s designed as a stroller insert, and worked great as a handbag/cot).

img_0031I’m watching you, Mr Elephant. Don’t make any sudden moves.

img_0032Could I be any more ladylike?

img_0033Music! Flashing lights! Arg!

3-4 months:

img_00032Winner!

img_0030

Nom nom.

img_0028

I’m so nervous chewing my nails just isn’t enough.

img_0025

Holding Hands With A Boy.

img_0022

I would have got away with it too, if it wasn’t for those darn kids.

img_0021

A-a-almost got it. . .

img_0019

Why does that giraffe have a rainbow shoved through its skull?

img_0018

Flipper baby

img_0011

Okay, I can explain! See there was this thing, and then I just. . .

img_0007

Yo, bring me a cold one, wouldya?

img_0039

First dates are always so awkward. What am I meant to say?

535704_10150966628525242_817704707_n

Pfft.

4-5 months:

img_0038

What could possibly go wrong?

img_0037

Look what I caught!

img_0029

Why won’t the book open?

img_0025

Darn it, I KNEW I’d forgotten something!

img_0018

They grow old so fast.

img_0009

Sneaking up on the enemy.

img_00042

Drop bear.

img_00031

I can eat the caterpillar, and my hand, and the world – simultaneously.

img_0039

Sadly, her actual hair.

5-6 months:

img_0032

Fascinated by her cousin.

img_0028

Why do you want to eat the table, sweetheart?

Because it’s there.

img_0026

Obviously hiding SOMETHING.

img_0015

Kissing frogs.

img_0011

Easy to hold onto, not so easy to put in her mouth.

img_0010

And the feeling is mutual.

img_0007

Whatever works.

img_0006

Mirror, mirror – who on earth is in there?

img_0005

Suspicion versus further fascination.

img_0035

Dressed as the hungry caterpillar, and hungry for the hungry caterpillar book. (The combination of outfit and book was deliberate.)

295250_10151107438565242_305569413_n

Yeaaaaahh!

6-7 months:

img_0002_1

and three seconds earlier:

img_0001_11 img_00161

How does she already know she wants lollies? She’s not on solids yet.

img_00101

Nom nom.

img_00081

Saucepan!!!!! Woooohooooo!!!!!!!!!!

img_00071

Thanks, poppy. I’ll be taking that now.

img_0031

Would you keep down that racket?

img_0022

And then the Irishman said, “I’ll be having mine with potatoes!”

img_0021

Mine.

img_0020

Once she could crawl, it suddenly got very difficult to keep her in frame.

img_00051

But I LIKE drinking this way.

img_0001 (1)

Wassamatter?

8-9 months:

img_0009

Nom nom.

img_0003

Mine.

img_0007

Hark! Is that Prince Charming, come to take me away on his white horse?

img_0008

Just not that impressed.

img_0017

Box!!!! Wooo!!

img_0016

Mister? Mister, wake up!

img_0031

Her natural hairstyle.

img_0020

Being a baby takes a lot of concentration.

img_0025

Nom nom.

img_0027

Yes, she’s blowing a raspberry (her idea; she invented the technique without ever seeing it done). Yes, that’s a grand piano in the background.

img_0028

Nom nom.

img_0033

I believe I mentioned she suddenly became a great deal harder to photograph. This represents 90% of the photos I’ve taken ever since.

img_0034

Nom nom.

img_00011

Buddy? Are you okay up there?

9-10 months:

img_0006

Punk princess.

img_0008

Pushing boundaries.

img_0016

Still working on that “eating” technique.

img_00012

Bad hair day.

img_00042 img_00061

Yes, she’s genuinely asleep with her face on her own legs.

img_00051

Eating a peg and apparently kind of angry about it.

img_00033

What do you mean she’s not a chew toy? (This is after repeated attempts at sucking on her littlest cousin – not all of them unsuccessful.)

img_00091

This is such a drag.

img_00101

Is it coffee time or what?

img_00016

Talk to the hand.

img_00034

Baby death-glare.

img_00044

Truth in advertising (read her shirt).

img_00131

Mmm. . . coke. . .

img_00141

And THIS is how I get dow—arg!

img_0004

About time somebody cleaned up around here.

10-11 months:

img_00121

Hurrah!

img_00102

Eeevil baby.

img_00083

A little but of shush, please. I’m talking.

img_00062

Ten seconds later:

img_00072

img_00111-e1356226028376

Leggo of me, Poppy! I’m doing fine.

img_00141

Would she gain the ability to reach the presents before Christmas? It was a close-run thing.

11-12 months:

a16.12.12.4

Nome nom. a24.12.12.4

Nom nom.

IMG_0001

Who says you need a dog to tidy up?

c2.1.13.5

Marry me, Justin Bieber!!!!

c3.1.13.4

I ordered my latte five minutes ago. Where IS that incompetent new assistant of mine?

IMG_0001

Is there something on my face?

d14.1.13.3

Aargg, noooo!!!

d12.1.13.3

Aaaalmost there. . . .

c4.1.13.1

Not happy, Jan.

IMG_0002

Cleanliness is next to annoyingness.

IMG_0001

I gotta drink up before they find me.

c4.1.13.4

Eureka! One year old!
