Life as a one year old can be stressful.
There is so much pressure.
Infomercials about reading babies.

Moms with cameras in your face.
So what if she can't read.
Because this picture would only be half as awesome if she was happy.
Her drama makes me smile.
The sign shop is open.
I have a few randoms left over from Queen Bee Market.
When they are gone, they are gone.
No custom orders, no relisting.
No more crying child photo shoots.
Grab them while you can.

  1. I feel a little ashamed to admit that I laughed out loud watching Janie cry. But the irony is just hysterical. And I don't think I've ever seen her NOT happy. Thanks for the SMILES.

  4. Oh these pictures are too precious! I have a picture of my baby sister crying in her long night gown sitting on the floor with me doing laundry, her crying and facial expressions are classic! Sometimes the crying pictures make the best pictures :)

  16. Janie - you drama queen you! love it. -- you know how to model your mommy's signs ;) ... some emotion goes far in advertising, no? (:

  17. Okay, that just made me happy. Maybe it shouldn't...but it really did. There is just something fun about 1 year old drama. My little Chase makes me crack up all the time with it...and then he gets a good hug. Love her. And love that she was holding the smile sign. Thanks for the happiness.

  21. You are an evil mommy.
    Making her cry thru a photoshoot....just to make a buck and get the raddest blog post ever.
    Sheesh.
    Who are you?!
    Send her over.
    My kids can give her therapy.
    I do it to them all the time.
    Except now my girls can read...and they don't just cry...
    they stomp their feet and roll their eyes too!
    HA!
    Love your signs.

  23. When my middle daughter was one we took her to a fancy place (i.e. expensive) to get photos with fancy backgrounds, wardrobe, everything. She cried the entire time!

    When it came to choosing pictures of her, those were the pictures I loved the most! Weird, but true!

  24. I just had to come back and look again. I think I laughed harder the second time through. Poor, sweet kid. I just want to give her a hug. :)

  27. You are TOO funny, Julie. My sis is naming her little girl "Jane" in July an I am already pumped about having a baby Janie. BTW, this is completely random, but I was wondering what school you went to in MO when you left Orange county for a year. 2 of my really good friends went to SBU in Bolivar and I think we're all the same age so just wondering if you went there...

  31. That is hilarious! My 4 yr old is FAScinated with those infomercials. He says with utter amazement, "MOM! Those babies are reading!" I was soooo sad to miss Queen Bee, but I realized I think I have a sign from you I bought at the Mariners Christmas boutique a couple years ago!! Yeah for me.
