This year Jack met the Easter Bunny for the first time and he was none too thrilled to do so. He didn’t cry, but he certainly wanted to bolt off the giant orange rabbit’s lap. This photo is the only one the photographer took because Jack would not sit still for another. I love it. It’s perfect.
We had a similar reaction this past Christmas with Santa as well. Being held by a stranger with a bushy beard and a fuzzy red suit was not Jack’s cup of tea. Honestly, though, I enjoy the photos where he isn’t sitting on the Easter Bunny’s or Santa’s lap with a huge grin on his face, posed. I prefer a natural reaction – whether positive or negative. I know in the years to come when we look through our family photo album (will we have albums in the future?) we’ll be talking about the story behind these photos and laughing our tails off.
