Peekaboo!

Something about this picture makes me so very happy.

Babies always make me smile, but getting them to smile is sometimes another matter.

 

I wanted some soft window light for her precious little face, but I also wanted an expression, something genuine. How to get her by the window with a real smile? ...Maybe if we play peekaboo with the white curtains?

 

The first "Boo" evoked a little smirk.

 

 

The second "Boo" a full smile.

 

And the third, miraculous "BOO!"... This!

 

Joy of joys! Triumph! Huzzah!

 

That's not to say kids don't get bored quickly though. She didn't stay for a fourth "Boo" and she ran off, leaving me there behind the curtain alone. -_-
