Baby #1 and Baby #2...

 Sometimes I think we have two Baby's living with us...

Baby #1 is angelic...

She looks positively saintly while sitting next to the religious statues on the half wall...

The reflection of dining room lights even looks like a halo above her head.


 And then there is Baby #2...

...who makes sure that my work takes ten times longer than it should...

... because she is such a little camera hog! When she hears me start clicking away...

... she races in from wherever she is to be part of the photo shoot!

She thinks people...

 would much rather see her...

... than the items...

... I'm trying to photograph...

... for our Etsy shop.

But since she is so adorable...

 ... I usually end up taking lots of photos of her...

... while she inspects everything.

And sometimes...

... I just go with the flow and use her in the listing photos.

After all, she is such a regal model, and always so professional.
She takes her photo shoots very seriously.

Well, it looks like I spoke too soon!
Baby, don't you stick your tongue out at me just because I called you a camera hog!
You know it's true! It's a good thing you are SO DARN CUTE, you little clown!

I hope you're all having a great week.

I'm joining Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday this week.

Your little babies are absolute beauties! I'm a cat lover too. I have four housecats. I love them all to pieces and just like your pretty Baby #2 they can get away with anything and still get lots of kisses all day long! xo

Oh my gosh, this made me laugh out loud! She is a MESS! LOL, I think you ought to use one on of the photos of her admiring herself in the mirror as part of your header! I can hear her now, warbling in kitty meows, "It's all about me! It's all about MEEEEE!" It was great to get a giggle for the night before I head off to la-la land. I have to admit that she is one of the most beautiful cats I have ever seen. I would have a blast photographing her.

I want to thank you SO MUCH for the St. Jude e-card for Mr. Jim! It was so sweet to get it, and it really perked up both up. We've been pulled hither and dither this week, as usual. He plans to send you a thank you note late tomorrow or this weekend. (Chemo and doctor visits takes up most of the day.) I gave him links of your blog, and reminded him that one of my all-time favorite blog posts in the whole WWW is the one of the Chip Whisperer, your dear sweet dad feeding Chip. I gave him that specific link too, so you could peek into your world and know what a special person you are. God bless you, sweetie!

Honestly, Donna, Baby's middle name must be "Ham." She is SO ADORABLE I can't stand it.

That last photo is too, TOO precious. It ought to be on the cover of a cat magazine and I'm not kidding. Submit it.

She is truly a beautiful cat.

Thanks for visiting today, too! Susan

I had a good laugh at Baby 2~ What a doll! Love how she likes to be in the photos...your own Vanna! Baby 1 is adorable also but much less of a photo hog! Thanks for sharing at TTF!

Baby sure is a little sweetie, Donna! Love all your photos of her. The ones with her looking at the hand mirror are especially precious. God bless! Bess

Cats have so many different personalities! Baby is mostly just adorable ; )

Melanie said...

Baby is just too darn cute! I love how she is posing and taking charge in all your photos. Some of them are outright hilarious, like the one of her sticking out her tongue and the one where she's looking at herself in the mirror. Cats are insanely curious...they love to get into everything, don't they? She is such a beautiful cat and I think she knows it. :-)

Shabby chic Sandy said...

I so enjoyed your post--what a beautiful baby she is! Love how these photos show off her personality!

Poppy Q said...

We agree - Baby is very cute and we laughed at her being a camera hog. My girl Poppy hates the camera, but I chase her anyway.

Baby is an expert photobomber. Love the photos of her looking in the mirror.

Reminds me of my Percy who has a knack for ruining most of my shots at home.
