I like to try doing little interviews with Carson. It’s always a fun challenge and even when the results are not what I wanted, they are pretty cute. I mean, to get him to answer or repeat what I want him to is usually an exercise in futility. Also, he really only sits still for the camera if I turn the little LCD screen to face forward so he can watch himself. But what he really likes to do is grab the camera, especially putting sticky fingers right on the lense. This first one was the third try of that morning, and the longest he sat still without reaching….

You’ll notice I tried a new interview technique: tape when the kiddo is strapped in! Carson is two days short of two years old, and we’ve been getting him excited about his birthday. He always just calls it “Happy.” In case you can’t understand, he’s stoked about his Elmo cake, or “take” as he says. Don’t you worry–mommy is working hard on Elmo, and he will be highlighted on the blog by next week.
