Caitlin’s Camera

After seeing how much Caitlin loved taking my camera, Aunt Julie decided to giver her goddaughter a camera of her own for Christmas. Let’s just say I’ve learned a lot from this gift.
Christmas morning Caitlin started taking pictures. Up first was Wherearewe.*

She politely asked, “Wherearewe – cheese?”


She answered, “Okay” then snapped the picture.
She patted his arm and said, “Thank you sweetie.”


Then she repeated the process.


“Sean, cheese?”


“Snowman, cheese?”


“Daddy, cheese?”


“Sean diapers, cheese?”


“Star, cheese?”


At about this time she started adding, “One more! One more!”

(Wonder where she’s heard that before?)

“Mommy, cheese?”


“Tree, cheese?”


I think she’s getting the hang of it!

She has taken well over 200 pictures. It is almost scary to watch her imitate me and the things I say. I am pretty sure I’ll get three blog posts out of what she’s done so far. It looks like she may be a regular contributor on the ol’ family blog!


* Wherearewe is Caitlin’s name for Big Bird. When the Irishman dropped Caitlin off at school in the morning he he would ask, “Where are we?” After a few weeks she started to say, “Where are we?” as soon as they drove into the parking lot. She is in the Big Bird room at school, so somehow Bird Bird has morphed into Where-are-we.
