After much begging, coercing and snapping silly photos, I got one of Avi smiling her natural smile. Sure, her hair's a little wild and messy, but that's real life right now. She loves the camera, the problem is, she acts goofy the second I pull it out. I think this one will be her new photo for the wall in our living room.
I like this one too. The hair in her face is so classic. That very lock of hair used to hang down her forehead
when she was a newborn. We used to say she looked like Elvis with that one stray curl
And yes, she was actually up in the tree. Having her climb the tree and hang on (her idea) was one of the only ways to keep her still long enough for some photos. I told her to let me get one good smile, then I'd photograph her being silly.
And it worked.
