You know I love her serious face. And I absolutely love this close crop and how much her eyes draw you in. I took all of these photos in less than 5 minutes and I admit they were a little boring composition-wise and the background (our living room) was definitely a little blah. So, this week I tried to play around with creative cropping and I must say, I'm kinda digging this.
I was taking her picture and she stopped smiling and said, "Mommy, when I make this face, look at all the bumps on my chin." I love her. She loves to make funny faces and look at herself in the mirror.
Okay, doesn't this look exactly like the Mona Lisa?! As soon as I saw it in the camera I thought that. Her smile is perfect! Go google it and you'll see what I mean.
Another of my close crops. I just want to reach in and squish her cheeks. I just love them so much.
Another serious face. I can't believe how grown up she is starting to look lately. She is getting so tall and her hair has grown out so much (she always had chin length hair for the first 5 years of her life) and I am really starting to see what she's going to look like when she grows up. Scary. I just want to keep her little for a while longer. That's why she's always got a bow in her hair...I have to do something to keep her looking young.
She is obsessed with hula hooping now that she got one for Christmas. All the little girls in her class hula hoop during recess and she could never do it. But now that she's been practicing for just a couple days, she's suddenly got the hang of it. It's so cute to watch her shaking her butt. She really gets into it. She is so incredibly proud of herself. She can't wait to get back to school and show off her new moves.
I can't believe that another year just flew by me. Thanks for joining me on my Photo Friday journey. It was a blast!
