…is changing. Claudine will be 3 in exactly 3 weeks, which pretty much signals the end of the baby age and arguably the toddler phase as well. I wanted to take some head shots because along with shedding all things baby, her face is constantly changing, losing some of her chubby cheeks and baby fat (look at those cheeks in the photo below! I make really big, chubby babies). I wanted to remember this moment as she transitions from toddler to little girl. Soon she will be long and lean like Mia who is looking like a little lady lately. It doesn’t take long. I don’t know if you can tell from photos, but Miss C is very tall for her age and towers over most 2 year olds. Combine that with her language and fine motor skills (I haven’t talked about her freakishly precise coloring within the lines, have I?) and most people think she is older than 2. Slow down I say. I’m not having any more babies you know, and I *love* the baby stage. But Claudine has her own agenda and seems to absorb everything in order to keep up with her older sister.
Now I must confess, I also took these photos because every time that damn Gap casting call comes around every year I’m tempted to enter the kids. I’ll go to the site and look at the entry form and go back to look again. One year the Gap actually held auditions in my neighborhood. I thought about taking the kids. For a minute. But in the end, I think I’m happy to keep Miss C all to myself.
