Bubbie the cat, begging for mercy from Henry.
After visiting friends in Maine with a very patient cat and dog, Henry and Will are OBSESSED with cats and dogs, especially Henry. Whenever Henry sees a cat now, of any color, he shouts, “Bubbie!” (Buddy was the cat that allowed him to yank on his tail for days on end.)
And we have Buddy to thank for the inspiration for the first two-word sentence he created on his own. (Henry already says things like “Hi, Daddy” and “Sit down!” mostly because he hears them so much, especially the latter. Like when he is walking on the couch.)
So poor Buddy was up on a windowsill, minding his own cat business and seeking a brief respite from the repeated tail yankings. Henry spots Buddy, points up at him and delivers, in an impossibly imperious tone and at the top of his lungs, “Bubbie! Down!”
Brilliant, isn’t he?!
Buddy was pretty brilliant, too, because he stayed just where he was.
So I have this week’s assignment for photo class to post, and again, I would LOVE your critiques. The assignment was to shoot, in extreme close up, baby and kid parts (hands, feet, etc.) or as the instructor describes it, babies as botanicals.
I thought it would be easy compared to getting eye contact and laughter, but it was harder than I thought.
Or my kids just move too much. Have at it, and thank you!
Henry, age 16 months.
Tommy, age 8 months.
Anna, age two weeks.
(And some of you asked about the class, it is indeed an online course, email me and I will give you the details!)
