Shutter Hugger

So my granddaughter, Reagan, came over yesterday and I took her into my bedroom and tried to get a few pictures of her on my bed. She wanted nothing to do with that. She fussed and reached out to be picked up and basically let me know that she cared nothing about having her picture taken. I resorted to getting out a bunch of bright beads — knowing she would love them and I would get some really cute pics. She did NOT love them and she actually seemed to hate them touching her at first. Finally, she calmed down a bit and started playing with the beads a little and I tried to get a few good pictures. But, she paid no attention to me no matter how hard I tried to get her attention — I called and made noises and Abigail stood next to me and made silly sounds and called her. Reagan looked to the left and the right and up and down but barely gave me a glance. I just wanted a few pics with her looking into the camera.  Oh, well. 
So, I have now ordered this little guy. I am thinking that Reagan may find him amusing or that he will at least get her attention for a few seconds. 
You put him on your camera’s lens and he is suppose to help get your child to look at the camera. If it really works then he will be useful for Bella, too. I don’t think Sophia will pay any attention to him, but you never know. 




Closing Weeks of Day Long Play

We start school in another week and so the days of playing all day long play are coming to an end. I am sorry to see summer end, but kind of ready for fall at the same time. I think I have enjoyed this summer of doing almost nothing more than my daughter that suggested it. I have spent more time watching the kids just play and have paid more attention to all the things they have built and put together. So this is the end of long days with almost nothing to do.

They are filling up these last days with riding bikes in our back yard.



Making coffee and tea.



Making houses, bridges and rivers and lakes for the fairies.






Making crafts.



Sophia and Bella love to be on the front porch — Sophia actually cries when we bring her in.




Resting and relaxing.
