Pictures today went well......sort of.
The picture part went well, as in, I think we're going to have a lot of great pictures. Mollie was wonderful and had lots of fun ideas and stuff to use. Isabelle was well rested and although I think she took a little while to warm up and show off that smile, she did a good job too.
But we also took big sister with us.
And today was the worst display of attention seeking I've ever seen from her. I guess I can't be too upset, because for the most part, she has done wonderfully about having a baby sister who gets so much attention from family, friends and strangers. Kaylee was the only one for seven whole years, so sharing the spotlight and the attention is certainly a big thing for her to adjust to.
Pictures today were 90% for Isabelle's 6 month pictures, and 10% for a few professional shots of the girls together. But Kaylee wanted to be a part of everything. Wanted to be in the middle of everything. It was bad enough that while Mollie was snapping pictures of Isabelle and coaxing out smiles, Kaylee was on the other side of the room, doing something silly saying "mommy, look at me! look at me! look at Kaylee!" which of course got not only my attention, but Isabelle's as well. SIGH.
While it was annoying and frustrating, I'm trying to remember how different Kaylee's world is now that she's not the only one, and how well she has done for the most part, and just trying to let it go.
