Last year for Little Pilot's one year photo we took photos on our front step with a number 1 pumpkin. We decided to do it again this year. Little Pilot and Co-pilot's birthdays are only 4 days apart and so Co-pilot had to have a photo as well. We got two pumpkins one small and the other baby sized :). The baby pumpkin was actually a sugar/pie pumpkin.
Here is Co-Pilot's zero pumpkin:
The numbers for the pumpkins were drawn with a marker. I printed off large scale numbers in a font I liked and traced over them with a sharp pencil in order to get an outline. I then filled it in with the marker.
Here are a few pictures of Co-pilot. I thought I would go in numerical order :) (zero goes first. He smiled for me here. It was probably one of those involuntary smiles as he was just around a couple weeks old.
He also stuck his tongue out at me (probably right before he peed allover the blanket and table :) ).
Now for Little Pilot...
He had the number two pumpkin. I really can't believe that he's two already. I took pictures of the pumpkin after Little Pilot had his photo shoot and the pumpkin lost its stem (scroll down and you'll see all the fun he had with it :) ).
Here he is very proud of his pumpkin. I found I got better photos when I let him hold onto the pumpkin. Don't be fooled though, he only sat like this for a half second. The rest of the time he was running all over the front yard.
I love his smiley eyes. Sometimes they squint so much I'm not sure he sees anything when he smiles.
He gave the pumpkin a kiss...
The next three photos show you what happened right before the pumpkin fell off the step and lost its stem.
