{Embrace the Camera} City Centre

This week I made it to Edinburgh's city center for the first time since I got back from Texas two weeks ago (let's be honest, I'm pretty sure it's the first time I've been since I had Avery in mid-March - what?!). In my defense, I'm a homebody, and it takes 45 minutes to walk there (don't judge - I'm pushing a really heavy double stroller!).

Much to my surprise, I enjoyed trekking it through the rain with my 2 year old and 3 month old.  Maybe trekking it isn't the most accurate phrase since I took the bus.  To be fair, I did have a bit of a walk from the bus stop to Taylor's office.  Our friends, Austin and Lauren, were in town visiting us and seeing bonny Scotland, so we met Taylor at New College, and then walked to a nearby cafe for lunch.   Seth loved getting to see Daddy in the middle of the work day.  We had such a fun time we decided we're making a monthly tradition!

Seth: 2 year old photos

Seth has become increasingly hard to photograph.

Exhibit A: 2 year old photo shoot 

He's considering smiling here.  Or maybe he's just thinking to himself, "why is my mom jumping around like a monkey?"

Now we're distracted by the water.  It would definitely be a good idea to get completely soaked at the beginning of the shoot.

I've managed to get pretty wet, so I guess I'll give you a smile.  

For fun, let's take a trip down memory lane to our 11 month photo shoot:

(This is back when the monkey was still funny apparently.)  

I won't smile, but I'll give you a kiss...

Now you've got the right idea mom - and no, I'm gonna get you!

OK, I've warmed up enough; here's a smile.

And here is my best smile, but I'm about to escape, so you better snap fast Papa!

And he's off...
