Talking to the Camera

Almost every time we take a picture of Lily, she notices the camera and looks straight at it. It's pretty cute, but also a little annoying because that means she stops being distracted or entertained by whatever was entertaining her, so she usually stops smiling too. So it's become something of a talent to be able to get a picture of Lily smiling . It basically involves hiding the camera until we think she's gonna smile, then whipping it out and centering it and trying to press the button right before or exactly as she actually smiles (because of the slight delay before the flash), and hoping that I didn't cut off her head in the picture, which I do more often then not. :) Then we have to hide the camera until the next time she smiles, and hope that she doesn't get too annoyed with the flashes. Hopefully this habit of hers just means that she'll be one of those little kids who will actually look at the camera when you're taking a picture because they love posing for it!

Well, this actually isn't a picture anyway, because I already put a ton of pictures of her smiling up, but I thought this was a really cute video of Lily cooing and talking to her Dad. Cheers!
