Wordless Wednesday: The Santa Photo 2010 – The Sequel


As if torturing my daughter with Santa wasn’t bad enough the first time, I figured I’d do it once more just to secure her need for therapy later in life. This time we went to the Beaver Valley Mall with cousin, Dominic (6m), to have her photo taken with Santa.

Once again she liked Santa from afar, but was not interested in sitting in his lap. Actually for the first few seconds she just kinda stared at Dominic with this look on her face like “What in the world is going on here?”, but they didn’t take the picture 😦 And then she started to cry. It’s almost like the photographer was waiting for her to cry. I love how Dominic has his hand on her back as if trying to comfort her.

In case you missed it last week, check out our first visit with Santa this year.

Wordless Wednesday: The Santa Photo 2010



On Saturday we drove out to Kraynak’s to see their Christmasland tree display.
While we were there we took Adaline to see Santa Claus.

First here she is last year with the Santa at the Beaver Valley Mall, she was just over 4 months old:

Now here she is this year with Kraynak’s Santa
at just over 16 months old:

She was fine with Santa from afar until I tried to hand her over to him. Check out the thumbnails for the progression of torture.

Post Santa trauma. Not letting go of Mommy.

Post Santa bottle and nap. Phew, what a long day 😉

And lastly, proof-positive that I’ve probably scarred her for life.
Later in the day once we got home…

Yes. She’s licking the ornaments on the tree.

Lest you think that this was a one time mistake by a rookie mom you need to see how I purposely tortured my daughter with Santa yet one more time only 1 week later:
