Inside the mind of a 2 year old...


I have struggled to get Ava to smile for me when I snap pictures of her for about the past year now. She turns her head away, closes her eyes, or just plain won't smile. Smart as I am, I am happy to say that I finally figured her out. At least as far as pictures go. I'm still trying to understand her recent fascination with dumping Lucky Charms out of the box and crushing them all over- usually on my bed. But, this picture thing is a non-issue now. Yep. After a year of fighting her for a smile I found that I simply have to take the picture when she is doing something she shouldn't be doing. Like jumping on the couch- or thinking of dumping the cereal. Then this little chi-chi is all smiles! Now I just need to work on my photography skills and we'll be golden!

Way cute little girl. I just happened on your blog a few weeks ago and find myself checking back often. I like the fact that you are 'real'!!
