You would think Clara would be photographed on a daily basis… what with spending her time in the studio and wearing these cute outfits and Mommy being a photographer… but (and here, seasoned parents nod their head knowingly) she’s a SECOND child.
SECOND-born Children, as compared to First-born Children, are distinct in the fact that their parents A.) use less hand sanitizer when associating with; B.) take them for far less frequent trips to the ER; and C.) seldom photograph the Second Child, outside of iPhone snaps.
Determined not to miss the moments, we made a date and scheduled a time for her nine-month Portraits. They started out with Daddy putting her into position.
She was obviously not thrilled with her beret, so off it came.
“Look at me, Mommy! I took my hat off! Now I will crawl rapidly toward you!”
Mommy puts the hat back on. Clara complains.
Clara takes the hat off. Gives Mommy a “whatcha gonna do about it” look.
Mommy puts hat back on. Clara complains louder.
Slowly, staring at Mommy the whole time, the strong-willed child takes the hat off again.
And throws it on the floor. Gives a defiant look to Mommy. It’s ON.
Mommy happens to be a former strong-willed child. Mommy puts hat back on. There’s no going back now!
Oh! She’s wounded! The horror! The agony!
Ooh, a wall! (Strong-willed but easily distracted). (Just like Mommy).
Daddy! Here to save her!
She glares back at Mommy, debating on whether they can still be on good terms.
Yes! Mommy has what she needs! (It was close to lunch time). We’re back in good graces!
And that concludes Clara’s nine month Portrait Session. Let’s hope the next Session goes better…
