The Gallery: Expressions

My poor baby must be feeling severely unloved due to the lack of photographs of him so far in comparison to his big brother by the time he was the baby's age! I suppose that happens with many second children. Particularly if the eldest is still young enough that he would destroy the camera if it were left somewhere easily accessible to the parents.

With that in mind, and having noticed on Twitter that it is Gallery day (why can I never remember - oh, maybe that'll be the lack of sleep), I thought I should get my camera out today. So I packed Felix off to his bedroom for some "quiet time", which usually doesn't involve very much quiet time and certainly doesn't involve any sleep, whilst Elliot did his best modelling work.

It may seem a boringly obvious response to this week's theme of Expressions, but forgive me. I have a new baby (alright, nearly 3 months. He still feels new to me) and I haven't yet captured a good smile even though he started smiling at the tender age of 5 weeks.

Indulge me. Here is my baby boy, Elliot, giving me his best cheesy grin. And I didn't have to sing to obtain it either!

Go check out some more amazing expressions in The Gallery at Sticky Fingers.


  1. "boringly obvious" - maybe
    absolutely gorgeous - definitely!

  2. Awww that's a gorgeous expression he has on display there! Lovely x

  3. What a gorgeous pic, and what a little sweetie! Just love the way his eyes have lit up. xx

  4. Very sweet, he has really expressive eyes, if you covered up the rest of the photograph you would still be able to tell he was smiling in the picture! Emma

  5. OMG! What a truly adorable baby! :D


  6. Now that is a future heartbreaker! He is absolutely gorgeous!

    So, how old was he before he had you and his Daddy wrapped around his baby finger?
