Say Cheese...

This is the look we get whenever we tell Carly to "say cheese". She can't say the word quite like she should, but she does try. Her version sounds more like "eeeese". She is mighty proud of herself for the effort put forth in trying to say the word. And try she does. Every single time the camera is out!

This picture was taken bright and early this morning. After brushing her teeth...which is another story in and of itself...ugh! At least she is smiling..this time!


I've run into a problem with Miss Carly though. Every time I want to snap a picture of her sweet little face, she tells me, "no. no. no momma", then runs off to find her camera. Her Fisher Price camera that Santa brought her for Christmas. Which is fine, except...it really doesn't take very good quality pictures. Fine for fun and playing around, but too fuzzy for my liking.

At any rate. Her smiley little face brightens my day. On days like yesterday. Man, I needed her smiley face. If you're a friend of mine of Facebook..you saw her smiley little face after school yesterday. She's the best little 'pick me up' ever!

It's funny that she actually uses the word "cheese" when the camera is out. Why? Well, because Carly signs cheese when she wants a piece of cheese to eat! When I remind her that she can in fact say the word cheese...she shrugs her shoulders and shakes her head at me. Like I'm nuts for even suggesting that she use the word for any time other than picture time. Crazy kid!

So, just in case you're ever wondering why Carly seems to have this same silly expression on her sweet face in each of her photo's...it's just her way of saying, "eeeese"!
