Those are both great shots! They really capture an expression! Unfortunately my favorite one is the one on the bottom, only because of the tote bag in the top one.

Damn that tote bag! :(

Thanks! Actually it's not a tote -- it's a jungle figure set. The bag unzips and has velcro spots for trees and it holds various animals. Very cute, intended for travel.

Trying to keep the living room tidy for cleaner backgrounds is futile beyond description ;)

We use a trail of cheerios to keep them seated where they are supposed to sit, and then make a fake, very loud sneeze sound to make them laugh

I do the same thing, just keep the camera handy in the living room for unexpected shots. They will rarely cooperate when I set up an elaborate set.

This one was taken at breakfast, I cropped out a 2 gallon jug of milk on the right.

Fart noises still work like a charm for my 11 month old. That and lots of rapid-fire continuous shooting in AI Focus mode. :)

I've found that some of the younger ones find it hilarious when someone nearby sneezes.

I stick them in stuff! In a crate, a cute old suitcase, anything that will contain them. Smarties will hold them off till you get your camera, and their attention. I like bringing a couple of tricks, bubbles, jingle bells, candy wrapper. And be fast!!!

Mine was hysterical over me throwing up a few weeks ago when I was sick :oops:

the only toddler I take pics of is my 19 month old son. I blessed that he smiles from the time he wakes up to the time he goes to bed.

I thought about digging up the smiley with dagger shooting from its eyes to post in response, but feared that it wouldn't be taken in good humor :)
