Playing with the grandkids
Typically when I play with the grandkids I leave the camera alone, but yesterday morning as we played with the bubbles from the dishwater, I couldn't resist grabbing the camera for a bubble on the end of Tristan's finger shot. Not quite what I was looking for but I gave up, lol.
Turns out Tristan has found his love for pictures once again. Here, he is flinging bubbles up into the air and letting them rain down on his sister.
Adrianna loved it! Much laughter and bubble popping ensued.
They are both babbling up a storm now. Tristan talks in long sentences and his take on life often makes me smile. Adrianna holds her own, when I take her binky out of her mouth and hide it I can understand most of what she says. She calls me gamma (grandma) but Tristan constantly corrects her that I'm MeMaw - it'll be interesting to see where this ends up.
When Addy sees a camera she puts up one hand and says "cheese" lol. Immediately, after I snap she wants to see herself on the back of the camera. Then she's ready for more pictures.
I tried to get a macro of her eye, but she kept popping around my lens and saying "Boo!" so that didn't work out, lol.
This is Addy's I-can't-believe-you-just-did-that-to-me look. I was trying to get her to back away from the camera so I could get more than half her head in the shot.
Holy crap! They both got still for a moment! You could hold your breath for the length of the quiet and still have enough air to blow up a balloon. Energy!
This is Tristan's get-off-the-stepladder-memaw look. He even pointed down for me too, lol.
He has such a good heart! He is a kissing the bandaid Addy and I placed on the baby doll's head last week, on her owie. The baby is wearing the duckie jammies Tristan wore as a baby. Memories. He will be four years old in February, I can't believe how fast time flies!
The only successful eye macro of the day, the baby doll.
