1,000 Words: Naked Baby


I have derived great pleasure from embarrassing my children on occasion.  I know that sounds awful, but it's true.  It was always done in good humor and a sense of teasing and they always knew I meant no harm.  I embarrassed, but I never humiliated.

Everyone dreads the public viewing of their naked baby pictures.  It's almost a rite of passage.  Just imagine the scene... a young man (or woman) is meeting the family for the first time.  Every parent wants to pull out the photo albums and show them just how beautiful their baby is right?  (Come on, admit it.  You've either done this, or had it happen to you.)  I couldn't wait to have that one, special, "naked photo" to use for just such purposes.  So I planned it.

Of course, Sierra was first.  She's wearing nothing but that hideous hair bow and laying on the bear skin rug that was a gift from Uncle Chuck.  She didn't seem to mind it at the time.  She is 6 months old in this picture.  (Steel's version will be posted at a future date.)
