Behind The Awkwardness: The King - Babies

“Every Halloween until they’re old enough to say no, my mother makes a historically accurate Elvis costume for each of my sons. This was my middle son Leo’s first Halloween. My husband works for a Fortune 500 company in Memphis who does a fantastic family day every Halloween. They go all out, including “professional” photography. Since Leo was barely 6 months old and couldn’t sit up very well in the heavy costume, the photographer had my husband hold him and said he would crop him out of the final pic. Thankfully, he did not because this epically awkward photo was the result.”

    Look at baby Leo’s mouth; I think he’s singing “Love Me Tender.”

    Maybe I’ve spent too much time on this site, but I don’t find this an awkward picture in the least. What I see is an absolutely adorable baby being sat up by his daddy. (And after reading the explanation, I think Grandma’s a hoot.)
