Is this better?

August 17, 2009

When visiting Gotland we went to many kids’ favorite place, Kneippbyn. One minute before this photo was taken our boys got completely drenched in a small water fall. Smart, guys!

I was sitting in another boat with Clara. I turned to take her photo. “Are you ready?” I asked

“Okay,” she replied, “take a picture now!” Then she gave me this pose.

Right afterwards she did something she had never done before.

“Dad, can I see the picture?”

“Of course, honey.”

She looked into the display, and thought for a moment. “Hmm… one more, okay?” Clearly she wasn’t satisfied.

“Oh dear, I thought, it’s starting now, the terrible curse of self consciousness.

“Is this better!” she asked. Then I see a beautiful smile.

Click.

“Yes, honey,” I sighed, “much better. You are simply beautiful!”

And she is.

    I agree with Belle; the second one IS better. With a smile like that she will soon be ready to conquer the world, no doubt😉

    Great Pictures!!!!
    And Clara is such an adorable kid! My two boys want to see their picture also, when I took one…long live digital camera’s….;-) And admitted….the second one is better, isn’t it??? :-)))
    Clara starts to look more and more like her brothers….
    You simply can’t deny they have the same parents….My sons also look like another…Awesome!!!!!! I take it a step further…I dress them the same as well, although my relatives aren’t happy about that…

    take care (of your wonderful family!)

    Belle
