My 4 Year Old!

Aquaman - Year 1 2009
 Do I think it's crazy when people dress up their pets for photos? Yeah, I do. Do I think it's crazy to put a birthday hat on my dog once a year for photos... the answer to that is very obvious by one look at these pictures... no, I don't. But if you're judging me... I don't really care, they're cute.

And it's fun to compare them year after year...

I hand made his hat this year - it took me all of 4 minutes, and I'm happy with how the shots turned out this year.

Year one, we tried the "Drop and snap" to get the photo. And it worked... kind of. We got a few shots of him looking like he was about to get whacked on the head by a brick... but it was just a piece of paper... I promise.

Year two I got my favorite picture to date. He must have been feeling particularly cooperative that day, because man is it cute!
Aquaman - Year 2 2010

Aquaman - Year 3 2011
 This was his uncooperative photo... I could NOT get him to wear the hat... He's not a huge fan of things on his head, but occasionally he'll humor me.
Aquaman - Year 4 2012


 This year he mostly participated. But I also bribed him with a new toy - as if he doesn't have enough of those laying around here!

Now we're off to dinner with Tim and Katherine's. Celebrating!

So... There will be more dog photos later this weekend. I came across a few I haven't blogged yet and they're super duper cute.
Happy Birthday my little man. You are a joy in my life!
