Toddlers on Instagram: Vivi’s May Edition

My Instagram account is no stranger to Vivi, in fact she’s kind of the main attraction, as are many toddlers on Instagram. Some of her silliest and most ridiculous moments have been forever captured in square format to enjoy both online and in print.

Every two months, I have a hardcover book made using all of my Instagram photos from the previous 60 days. We all look at them regularly and they are probably Vivi’s favorite books to “read” to us.

Now that Vivi is a little older and well aware of what I’m doing with my camera (and not always such a big fan of it) I have become much more stealth in my picture taking, which means I get some pretty unique angles from either holding my phone at my side and shooting blind or holding it on the ground, trying to be as inconspicuous as possible. I’d say for every 20 photos I take, one ends up being a real keeper. I’m far more accurate with my DSLR, but my phone fits in my pocket much easier.

Now that the weather is warmer, the pictures have really started to pick up, here’s May to prove it:

  • In the greenhouse 1 of 25

    She knew her view was terrible and insisted I carry her through the greenhouse.

  • Ear holds 2 of 25

    It's so she doesn't mess up his hair. (Which, what hair? I know.)

    Cody may have run a marathon, but I wore a toddler for two miles through crowds like whoa. We all have our strengths.

    When I asked Addie if she had her homework done, she told me she was busy.

    The greatest feat of toddler athleticism, getting all that up in the air with those little legs.

    A soft beanbag and a warm blanket was exactly what Vivi needed on a day she felt terrible.

    Sitting at the edge of each pool was her favorite thing (and only thing she'd willingly participate in).

    This is something I haven't witnessed in months. I started to wonder if it was even possible to witness a sleeping Vivi.

    Don't tell the board, but Vivi puts the babies to sleep on their tummies.

  • Fear and loathing in a trampoline park 22 of 25
