So far, I'm not a big sister just yet. I've had to wait a long time for my baby sister to arrive, but it's getting much more exciting now that her "due" date is less than a month away.
(Secretly I hope that she'll come a little bit early, and Momma does too... shhhh)
Now, while I wait, I have a lot still to do. For one thing, I have to keep a tight watch over Momma. This is made easier by the fact that she moves more slowly these days and eats much more often. Next, I have to shop for deals on my favorite treats so that I am well-stocked with things to do during our big adjustment time as a family. I'm also fully participating in story time when Dadda reads to my baby sister at night, and, probably most importantly, I'm soaking up all of the attention I can get.
Just yesterday, in order to soak up extra attention and keep my guard post by Momma, I spent some really fun mother-daughter time at a park downtown, and the city has worked hard to revitalize what once was not nearly as nice as it is now. Yesterday was my first visit to the renovated park.
Momma brought our new camera - it's fancy and complicated, so she's going to be practicing on it a lot before the baby arrives. What better subject for her practice than a model like me, basically a professional in the industry?
I know I make it look easy, but I am sometimes a challenging subject, you know. That's why I'm the perfect partner for Momma's camera practice.
I didn't know until we arrived at the park that I would have the opportunity to take a dip in the water, but once I found that out, we really fell in love with the place.
We also met a nice photographer friend by the river, named Paul, who took some photos of me, too, with a camera even nicer than ours. Here's his best work with this most beautiful subject!
What have you been up to? I hope your summer has been as much fun as mine, spending time as a family, visiting with relatives and taking some adventures. Now it's nearly Fall, and I'm finally going to get to be a big sister!! Wish me luck...
