Show Stealer

Sometimes The Monkey likes to hang on me.
I don't mind.
I'll be a Monkey tree for as long as he'll let me.

Today's shop update meant nothing to him.
And my trying to photograph myself wearing a necklace
was nothing more than a chance for him to love the camera.

Up goes my arm,
aim . . .
and with the *click* of the shutter comes a jump from this boy.
Right into the frame and onto my lap.

Someone likes attention.

And so we had an impromptu photo booth session.
These are the good days.

  2. Awww gorgeous phics Jess ~ how wonderful to catch those moments ~ they grow soo fast!!
