Wyatt says "This totally BITES, man!"

I had to take some pictures for a girl down in Atlanta today, so I dropped the kids off at my parents so they could watch them for me. I was gone several hours and when I returned home I found this...


Cute, huh? Well... look a little closer...



Um, yeah. See that? The mark on his chubby little cheek that strangely resembles the size and shape of say... a three year olds mouth??? Yeah, that.

I was like "Mom, what the frick happened to his cheek?!?! Did Allie... did she bite him????" and she was like "Ummm, well.... she's already been punished for it." I was so mad. I mean, what the frick would possess her??? Mom said they were just playing happily and rolling around on the floor when he suddenly screamed bloody murder. At first mom thought she had accidentally hit him and made his cheek red, but the longer she rocked him the more visible the little dots became.

I still have no idea what made her do it. I don't think she meant to hurt him at all. She's never done this before, and never been bitten herself. Mom said that she seemed totally shocked and confused when she told her that biting hurts. She said Allie immediately teared up and hugged Wyatt while apologizing repeatedly. I kinda felt bad for her when I heard that. Who knows. I'm sure this won't be the last thing she pulls that leaves me wondering...

Anyway. In other news... I know that I have neglected to post updates in awhile. Let me start to fix that now. Wyatt can now sit well on his own and has been able to for several weeks now. He's not smiling here because... well... he's still miffed about the bite.

But as you can see here... he gets over it quickly.

He has one tooth on the bottom that he got over a month ago. We're still wondering if he has another inside his gums anywhere. He is rolling all over the place and is starting to try to scoot a little. I have a feeling life is about to get waaaaaaaayyyy hectic. Oh, and if you are wondering... he still gets up anywhere from 3 to 7 times a night AND still refuses to take a bottle.

He is a cutie! Maybe the bite was a one time thing and she will not do it again. My oldest never was into biting, but my second has done it a few times.

Poor little fella! But Katie's right, he still takes a good picture.

Oh my gosh! That's crazy how you can see each individual tooth mark!

You don't take a bad picture my friend...so you travel too? Do you charge extra for that? I will be needing some photos for David's upcoming 2nd birthday...

Wyatt is a doll, bite mark and all. Evan is getting up at night a lot right now too. This teething stuff sucks.

I was going to ask the same as Andrea since you do great work. When I finally lose this baby weight (after I figure out why I haven't lost it!) I want to do family portraits.
