This morning, Maddy informed me that she needed to wear her "China dress" today because her Kindergarten class was marching in the Chinese New Year parade at their school. Of course, this was the first I'd heard of it and I was just happy that we had a Chinese dress for her to wear!
She was so beautiful that I had to snap a few photos before school.
She loves to pose (and often overdoes it) but today she tossed her head around and flipped her hair and looked like the
poster child for cuteness.
Then, right out of the blue, she'd decide
to stare straight up at her bangs and make this funny face!
Of course, I flipped the camera around and showed her what she looked like and then she really cracked up and was inspired to do it 15 more times! I know you're grateful that I'm not
posting the other 14 photos.
Here she is at a peak state of amusement with herself:
After that, it was right back to cute again! I don't think God
created anything more silly and adorable than a 5 year old little girl!
I'm still learning about black and white photography. It's really a challenge! It's hard to disregard color and focus on patterns and textures and light instead. In the color version, her dress was really eye popping but in the black and white version, it's her hair and face that you notice most.
