I wrote about this on Instagram a few weeks back, that Chloe doesn't always let me take her photo anymore. Not at the drop of a hat, or at my request, unless I'm lucky these days. She is, however, okay with scheduling these things. I wanted to get some pictures of her in the really cool dress her Uncle Scott brought back from China. It fits her perfectly--another growth spurt and we would miss our window of opportunity. Then Geoff went on an unexpected trip to China, and brought back this fan that she is crazy about. With her new favorite thing doubling as a perfect prop for the dress, she agreed to schedule some picture time. With three days notice.
This is what Chloe looks like when I don't reign-in her posing. (next two shots from my iphone)
The changes are small, but huge these days. This morning she lost her front tooth, and her smile will never be the same as it was yesterday. And so, I will never stop taking her picture, or looking back at them fondly with this little ache in my heart.
