flashback friday: a year of p-ray in a shopping cart.

so if you've been reading this blog for a while now you know it's not uncommon for me to feel that an impromptu photoshoot in target/fred meyer/costco/the fabric store/insert-any-other-weird-public-place-here is totally necessary.  because duh, it is.

the other day, as i was uploading the most recent batch of parker-in-a-shopping-cart pictures, it dawned on me that dang... i have a whole collection of these bad boys.  i felt the need to revisit some of the earlier ones & that's exactly what today's flashback friday is all about.

here goes.  {almost} a full year of p-ray in a shopping cart.

december 2, 2010 -  target.  my first day out with the new camera.  parker is about 7 months old & can barely sit up in the cart.  squishy, floppy, little chub.

december 11, 2010 - fred meyer.  epic mom fail... nuff said.

february 16, 2011 - target.  just got back from hawaii & needed a pick me up.  obviously this worked.  parker's about ten months & extremely happy about this trip to target.

april 5, 2011 - costco.  another rainy day shopping trip, which was pretty much the highlight of our day.  eleven months & not too sure about the sample lady.

august 22, 2011 - joann fabric.  clearly a bit delirious from the amount of fabric shopping i'd been doing.  sixteen months & chewing with his mouth open.

september 8, 2011 - costco.  he's just here for the samples.

october 3, 2011 - joann fabric.  again... not too pleased with the fabric store.  seventeen months & wearing the same jacket as picture #2.


and there ya have it.  from seven months to seventeen.  this kid puts up with a lot of shopping.

do you think i'll be able to get pictures like these up until he's eighteen & headed to college?  like, "here's parker, sitting in the cart picking out sheets for his dorm at target."  i might... because yes, i am that crazy.

happy friday, yo.

  9. The shot of Parker trying to lick the cart handle is one of my all time favourite Parker pictures! Remember how exciting it was the first time they sat in a cart???? Now, if I only I could convince Kale to sit in the cart for more than five seconds...

  10. Just after Ethan turned 6 months old I started doing a lot of freelance styling for photoshoots. So we were shopping EVERYDAY lol. Four years later though he still doesn't mind shopping with me.

  17. Parker always looks soooo happy. Love this post -- I shop too much. I'm sure I'll have plenty of these photos in a year.

  18. super cute pics! Okay - I am wondering what kind of camera you have?? I have been wanting to get a "mom camera" for quite some time now but don't want to spend a fortune but I want to know the pictures come out awesome - and yours are really good. Do you edit them once you get home or is that how they naturally come out? Can you let me know the make/model/price? Thanks Amy!!

  22. Wow, I remember all but the first picture. I didn't realize I'd been reading your blog for so long. I absolutely love this and can't believe how much he's changed over the months.
