How to Entertain a 2-year-old!

Not just any 2-year-old, but one whose world has been rocked by a newborn sister!  After several attempts of trying to distract her from wanting to hold, stroke, carry and nurse the baby; we gave her the camera.  (It's a good thing the camera isn't expensive.) 

Here are a few of her pictures from the photo shoot for your viewing pleasure.

Just need to monitor what she's taking pictures of!

On another note, a big Happy Birthday to Mr. Cy!  He's 5 today!  He loves his baby sister and is a big helper.  Notice Kels still thinks she needs to take over!

  After spending the night, "sleeping" in the baby's room, I'm a bit sleep-deprived but happy to be a grandma!  Have a wonderful day!

I so understand the sleep-deprived thing!! Doesn't it truly make you wonder how you ever did it...babies, kids the whole nine yard?!! Makes me wonder how I did it!!!!

Your grandkids are sweet!! :-)

My 2 year old would love a camera too! :) I'm sure 1/2 of the pictures would be of me in my "G's"


The only downside to a Newborn that I can think of.. is lack of sleep.

Your a good Grandma.. enjoy your weekend!

Another word for you Connie, is AWESOME GRANDMA!

I don't think there is anything else that could make a two year old happy then to have free reign of taking photos.

Ethan has kidnapped our camera from time to time and the things they take photos of are priceless!!

Happy weekend enjoying your sweet grand kids!

What is it about Mr. Cy's face that just kills me?

I love that K is so into the baby. Sweet.

Looks like you are having a great time. The joys of being a grandma.
Did Mr. Cy have his big hot dog birthday celebration?

Congrats on a new baby grandma.

Love the photos of your parents.

Grandma Travis said; We finally got to see our adorable number 19
great grandchild, she is so cute, I can`t believe all that black hair. It was so good to see the rest of the family too. Emily is so grown up, Cyrus is so dang cute with that smiley face, Kelsey is also a cutie, so qiet, her grandpa Travis said, "she will make someone a good wife, because she keeps her mouth shut". That is not nice to say about such a sweet little girl.
