Second Try



With better light and natural curl (frizz). I like the top picture, but the bottom one is probably a better likeness and Micah is smiling. If you have an opinion please vote for top, bottom, or to leave my profile picture the same. Use the comment box below. Thank you!

Both pictures are beautiful. But I like the smiles on the bottom picture.

Jenny said...

You're gorgeous in both, but Micah's smile can't be beat...I say #2!

Kris said...

Both are great - but definitely the smiles in #2 win out!!!

Yes, number 2, beautiful smiles, you are so lovely and he is so precious.

I vote for the bottom picture as well! It is a great photo!

Charlotte (Matilda) said...

Bottom one, hands down! Wow! You are gorgeous! I love your natural curl and that baby in your arms just completes the picture!

Betty Beguiles said...

I LOVE the bottom one. You are beautiful and your little man is such a cutie pie!

Melanie B said...

They're both good photos but I'm with everyone else. The smiles win over the serious faces.

And I am so jealous of your curls.

#2 just beautiful

Katy said...

Bottom - your hair is gorgeous and Micah's smile is precious!!

Sarah - Kala said...

#2 for me, but you're both adorable in either one. Smiles always trump, though. I really enjoy your blog and your cute kids quotes!

Aileen W said...

the bottom one gets my vote!

jen said...

Gotta vote for the baby grin. Love it. You look wonderful in both, so its no contest for me. :)

Shawna said...

Bottom one. You all look so happy!

KC said...

You look beautiful in both, but Micah's smile just can't be beat.

Christine said...

I like the smiling one better only because that sweet baby is looking also. I love the top one...you look beautiful just wish the baby was looking also.

Catherine Post said...

You look beautiful in both, Suzanne. I would choose the bottom one, because both of you are interacting & Micah is just so full of delight!

Herb of Grace said...

Definitely number two! Love the smiles :)

Kristen Laurence said...

Second picture. Love it, Suzanne! Gorgeous.

Kimberlee said...

Hello! Hello! You are gorgeous in both shots, but as everyone has said, Micah's grin takes the win! (I think you get prettier every year, or is it with every new little man you are blessed with?)

Margaret in Minnesota said...

The bottom one, definitely! And I love your curls.

#2!!!! You look so young! How old are you?

Emily G. said...

I choose the bottom one. It seems more natural. It's easy to see where your boys get their cuteness from!

the momma said...

#2 gets my vote, too ~ love the smiles!!
I'd probably crop it a bit...

Kris said...

You are stunningly beautiful, but who wouldn't vote number 2 just for the cute baby grins.

Katherine said...

Off topic: I like your blouse. I'm having a very hard time find cute, modest, white blouses for my daughters. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Haus Frau said...

Lovely pictures! I'd have to vote for the bottom one, however. Micah has an adorable grin!

Johane said...

I still follow your blog and I love every moment of it. Micah is so adorable, and I love how the boys have taken to him (as we could all expect...)

Both pictures are beautiful, but I have to admit the smiles in #2 are best, so my vote is with the bottom picture.

Blair said...

Definitely #2 :)

Farmer's City Wife said...

Impossible not to vote for the bottom one :).

I love your blog!! It's such a delight. You have a wonderful family. Keep up the excellent work.

Suzanne Temple said...

A landslide it is! Everyone seems to agree that Micah's grin wins. I can see that now and even wonder why I haven't posted pictures of Micah's smile much. It may be because I feel a video camera would be needed to capture all the twinkling you can't see here.

Anon, I'm thirty five.

Katherine,
That blouse was a happy Marshall's pick up, but my favorite brands for blouses are Talbots and Lands End,and both have kids sizes. They are modest and cute and good quality and if you live in an affluent area the best place to buy them is a fancy shop called "Goodwill." That's what I recommend.

Lovely pictures! The bottom one with the baby smiling is just so precious. And thank you for the recent link!

gretchen from lifenut said...

Smiles! You are quite a beautiful pair.

Can I say how happy I am you opened comments, even for just one post? :)

#2 is the winner! Your smiles are beaming!

nicole said...

I like the bottom one. Y'all are beautiful!

Cheryl M. said...

#2 - both of you are so beautiful! :)

Carmen said...

I love your wavy short hair! #2 is the better photo.

Faith said...

I love the smiles-- but I have to say the first one does have it's merit. How many pictures I have of a baby smooshed up to my cheek with me grinning away and the baby looking on with that look of cute bewilderment!

Colleen said...

Bottom!! You look like a little schoolgirl (in a good way!). I can't believe you are the mom to all those handsome boys!

Julie said...

I vote for number 2... and I love your hair curly! Wish I loved my own curly hair!

Angelina said...

Definitely the second one. You can't beat the smile(both mama and son).

Jamie said...

Both are sweet, but I love your big smiles in the second photo best. :)

AmysZoo said...

I love your shorter hair...and the smiles are wonderful. Definitely the second photo!

hider101 said...

definitely the bottome. You both look beautiful!

Melissa said...

The bottom one.

Jodi said...

Bottom one! His smile is SO adorable and you look beautiful! Love those curls!

Kelly said...

#2 pic on bottom. Both of your smiles are contagious and make me want to smile in return. But you look fantastic in both. :)

God bless!

Heather said...

Oh, bottom! It is a wonderful happy picture. Of both of you :)

Has anyone told you that you remind them of LeAnn Rimes? Something about your smile or your eyes or something...

Heather

Suzanne Temple said...

Heather, It's the "almond shaped eyes." I was teased for them all through school. "You could blind fold her with dental floss" etc.. I grew to like them as I got older, though, despite all that teasing.

cliquish chicken said...

i know the votes have been cast but that bottom photo is the best! adorable.

Curly girls stand proud! Embrace our natural buoyancy!

Mary Ellen Barrett said...

I know I'm late but you are beautiful and Micah is soooo beautiful I long to squeeze him.

I don't think you could take a bad picture.

Karen E. said...

You both look beautifully joyful in that new picture. I love his smile!
