I was really jealous of my niece's ability to break into a beautiful smile upon request (i.e. when you point a camera at her). Andrea is at that stage when she flat our refuses to stay still, much less, smile for the camera.
At least, until a few nights ago...

I stayed very still while watching her, afraid that if I made any sudden move, she would notice me watching and stop. So I very slowly grabbed the closest camera on hand... which is my camera phone. And she did stop after that first shot *sigh*. Oh, to have captured this using my SLR (which is currently buried in a pile of stuff somewhere in our house right now... I have to look for it one of these days).
Good news though... after her practice that night, my daughter can now smile upon request. Although her idea of a smile right now is crinkling her eyes and showing ALL her teeth. We're working on toning it down a little ;)
