Photographers peruse all sorts of websites for inspiration, and this pose is a popular one on Pinterest. Almost as well-known as the original are the various fails which occur when parents have tried this.

The Rubot (as Papa Matty calls her) is gaining mobility at the tender age of nine months old. Here’s a preview of the walking upgrade.

We went out for some park fun, ’cause kids love the swings. All kids. All swings. Ask my six-year-old.

Ah, little humans. You can set up your fancy gear and make all the silly noises you want but in the end, if their boot is more fun than you, they’ll letcha know in no uncertain terms.

She was basically holding a yoga plank on top of this rock. Also, check out her amazingly stylish bandana/bib/drool catcher.

Aside from being a creator of amazing wedding cakes and fancy confectioneries (be jealous that you didn’t have some of her oatmeal/apple cookies; OM NOM NOM), Sarah also MADE that bandana. Talent++.
