i had the idea for this post the day before jovie started kindergarten, but, well, you see- there were other things to be posting about. and when i looked to link up to the other posts, i realize it’s been almost exactly 2 years since we’ve done this.
here is another photo session with yiminy. the difference this time is the fact that the photographer was jovie. 2 christmases ago, Santa gave jovie a kidzoom camera. it was at first used for the 2 little games on it. then it was largely unnoticed & relegated to a toy bin somewhere.
even when she decided she wants to be a photographer (and a florist, and a “show actor”) she didn’t think to actually use the camera for real.
she was playing with all the gadgetry of it & thought she found the perfect model in yiminy. let me share:
then came all the fun gadgets. while i was in the kitchen doing something, i kept hearing all these clicks. overandoverandoverandover. it was her arranging all the backgrounds and taking new pictures of this patient model:
and she ended with an almost perfect framing:
too bad he was oblivious. but he’s come a long way in his modeling career! at least this time he stayed put.
in sad news, i need to report that on the 2nd day of school, The Mr. & i had to make the horrible decision to put our other cat Doh down. she had been inexplicably sick for over 6 months. unfortunately, when i came home from ireland, things got a little worse, & we had to do the only thing we could for our sweet cat.
it was terribly ruf for us. jovie is OK because Doh was afraid of people & tolerated jovie as much as she could, but she certainly wasn’t the social cat.
she was the softest cat on earth, and i fell in love with her 8 years ago with yiminy in my arms asking The Mr. “can we get two??”
we have her ashes in a (tiny) box and her pawprint (!!! that made us bawl. we had no idea!) in our closet, where she spent much of her time hiding from life.
The Mr. & i miss our dohhy time, and yim does too.
we’re just very glad jovie handled it with no problem.
