So, I have a feeling that someday as I am flipping back through this online journal, this is going to be one of my favorite posts.
Evyn is venturing into photography. After giving up on the stupid Little Tykes camera, I decided to let her use my old Canon Powershot. She operates it quite well. Every once in a while, she'll ask to use the camera, go fishing in our junk drawer for it, and disappear to her room for an hour. She really has an imagination. I've decided to start printing a few of them for her to put in an album. She's very proud of her work and I'm loving all of the outlets she's exploring, including the camera.
She's really proud of this set and when I told her that I was going to post it to my blog for everyone to see she got a little giddy. I don't think she knows exactly what that means, but she seemed to understand it was cool. I take her seriously, but when I first flipped through these photos full screen, with her standing over my shoulder proudly waiting for my opinion, I couldn't help but giggle. What must go through that little four-year-old mind of hers…
So, without further ado, I bring you the Barbie series (there is also a shoe series):
Evyn: "She's swimming up and down."
Evyn: "She's dancing; it's called a 'bya' " (this is a made-up dance move)
Evyn: "That's her swimming."
Evyn: "That's called 'her laying down in a swimming suit'."
Evyn: "That's arabesque."
Evyn: "That's laying down arabesque."
Evyn: "She's getting a haircut. But I didn't really cut her hair. I'm just pretending."
