A change has come about in Rachel's reflection, and I think it's a change she likes because she shows it off at any opportunity she stumbles upon.

She used to be rather reluctant to show her teeth off to anyone and would clamp her lips closed if you tried to get a peek. Now that she's noticed her pearly whites, however, she has a new smile that shows them off wonderfully. She scrunches up her little nose, bares her teeth, and grins!

She smiles all the time. She smiles at strangers. She smiles at mommy and daddy and at grandma and grandpa. She smiles to herself when she plays. She smiles at the people sitting behind us at church. She smiles at all the grandmas in the grocery store. She smiles all day long.

It's the cheesiest, goofiest grin I've ever seen.

These pictures are from Sunday after church when Rachel kept trying to climb into her stroller. She would have done it, too, if it weren't for that pesky dress!


  1. Actually, it reminds me of a goofy grin I have seen before. Can you guess whose? Not yours, not any of your siblings...

  2. Hmmm...could it be Andrew's?

  3. You guys make me laugh. Hmm, yes, I can see where the daddy-daughter connection might be!
