Oh my gosh you guys, Daisy was at the studio for her Chesterfield newborn session today. She is so cute. Like, crazy cute, she’s just a tiny little thing with the most perfectly tiny features. Of course she brought mom and dad with her, and big brother Dean.
Dean was not excited to take photos. He’s definitely still adjusting to being a big brother. But he’s also rounding the corner on turning 3. And that is a hard age. Wanting to be independent, but not quite there yet. So much to say without the skills to communicate it.
Daisy took a few snack breaks, and some snuggles to get in the groove of posing. So her session ran a little longer than i prefer. I never want to rush a baby, so we will take the time we need. At the same time, babies tire of me tickling them and perfecting those tiny fingers and toes. So overall, I was grateful that Dean held in there as long as he did. But by the end of our session we were encroaching on nap time, lunch time and his last nerve.
I used my old trick for big brothers specifically. There is an owl statue on the roof of the building across the street. So when siblings get restless I send them into the other room to look for him. It’s fun and entertaining. And it gives them something else to think about for a little while. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Dean showed some interested in the owl, but he really wanted to push my wagon around. He kept telling his dad that he wanted to take the wagon in to see the owl. I’m not sure how much my wagon appreciated the view, but it kept him busy, so whatever it takes to get the job done.
