It doesn't happen very often that Nadia asks to take pictures. It's even more rare for her to ask to take pictures with Mama.
So when she said "let's take pictures of Mommy and Nadia together" a few days ago, I didn't waste any time grabbing the camera. She's a fickle being; I need to seize the opportunity before it's gone!
We took one goofy shot of us after another. Just because it was her idea to take pictures doesn't mean she's going to sit pretty and smile!
Nope, she's still her crazy little self, making silly faces and climbing all over me. And I wouldn't have it any other way.
But when she stopped to unzip and re-zip my pants? Even I must admit that was a little bizarre.
But still, I took a picture of it!
She comes by her craziness honestly, though. I mean, just look at the faces I make.
Click, click, click. One picture after another with either me or her - or both! - looking "weird." Or out of focus. Darn than f1.8 for crisp pictures indoors!
But among the silly pictures a few gems were tucked in. Like this last one, which is my Best Shot Monday, and my new profile pic.
I'm glad to have some new pictures of me and my girl together. I'm even glad for their imperfections; more personality shines through that way. Who wants a boring look-at-the-camera-and-say-cheese portrait? Not me!
Nadia told me yesterday that we are "very best friends." Or course, 10 minutes later the squirrel we saw scamper up the tree was her new best friend....but still, that's special, right?
