SO MANY FACES

Posted on: Thursday


Oh, how her expressions get me. Whether it's a sad pout when I tell her I'm leaving for work, a mischievous grin when I catch her going through my purse (again), or an excited smile when she hears her favorite song come on, her faces downright crack me up.  I remember so clearly how thrilled Gaby and I were when she first smiled.  She was a quite serious newborn and took her time in expressing herself those first few months.  I remember how it seemed like all of the other babies around town (because, of course, I knew them all- why do we compare our children to one another anyways?? What's the saying, "comparison is the thief of joy"?) were smiling already at a much younger age, but my little Biet remained a straight-faced lady.  We would sing her songs and smile at her and tickle her- no dice. But then one day out of the blue, her lips curled up unexpectedly, and eureka, it was beautiful.  Next came grins, and belly laughs, and smirks, and kisses.  And now we have a bona fide little actress on our hands. And I love her to pieces.  Here's a little sampling of the faces one might encounter should one spend the entirety of five minutes with Biet. I give you, "Biet teases Nico with her snack and then throws a fit when Nico finally eats it."  (with a healthy dose of "Crazy-haired, Cheese-obsessed toddler" thrown in too).  :)








The end.

  3. Such a sweet story. Our little Isadora was slow to smile as well, but it made the moment all that much sweeter. Biet seems to be quite the charmer.

    1. I remember worrying that she was delayed compared to everyone else, but now it all seems so silly. She has so much character!

  4. Hahaha. Adorable. She does have a very expressive face, beautiful!

    I sometimes try to capture the angry moments around here as well, but they don't really like that. Makes them even more mad *grin*.

  5. Oh my goodness! She is so cute, funny, and charismatic. You can tell just from this little series of pictures. You know you're doing something right as a mom when you can snap pictures of them that really capture their little spirits. I caught a good terrible two's scene of my little lady the other day. Love following along here! :)

    1. Thank you Molly! I give all of the credit to Gaby, though. :) I was always a shy little girl as a kid.. she seems to take after Gaby's wild spirit.

    1. Hi Sonya!
      I took these with a fixed 50mm lens. They make them for all types of DSLR's (the camera I use is a Canon Digital Rebel t3i). Sometimes I use the kit lens that came with the camera too, but I really like the fixed 50mm because of it's acute focus.
