"A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2014."
Maile: This week's portrait is about little details I'll remember about the day ...
It's hardly noticeable here, but she asked me to curl her hair before our zoo outing. I curled the ends under just a smidgen, and she insisted that I leave her hair like that. "No bow, no bobby-pin. Just like Mama."
I absolutely hate those silly pink sunglasses, but Maile loves them, and that's what matters; she also loves polka dots.
The carousel is Maile's favorite thing. She will ask to ride it again, and again, and again ... carefully selecting a new animal she'd like to ride, with each turn. The thing is, you wouldn't know it. Once she's seated, she becomes lost in the experience. Her face stoic. Her eyes gone to another place. I cannot begin to tell you how overjoyed I was to capture this hint of a smile.
