Just when I thought I couldn't be any crazier about this girl, she does something new. Her smile has always been big, but it just got bigger. About a week ago, she was playing on the floor and I caught her looking up at the ceiling and smiling this smile:
Chin towards the ceiling. Eyes disappearing. Dimples blaring. Gums-a-blazin'.
I started laughing and making a big deal out of it because it was so cute. She immediately stared at me, frowned, and started crying. My reaction scared the poor girl. After the trauma (originally wrote traumatization. Not a word. Totally not a word.) wore off, she began smiling her "big girl smile" from time to time. Now it's a staple for her. We can even say "Chloe, where's your big girl smile?" And she does this:
Big girl smile with mom. I think I see where she gets the disappearing eyes from. Also, I absolutely hate my camera. It won't let me take a picture with the least bit of movement. They always turn out blurry. If anyone wants to send me a Nikon Digital SLR, I'll totally let you.
