you capture::kisses

This week's challenge was, well, a challenge. My girls don't really sit still long enough for me to capture a good candid shot. In fact, when they hear my camera turn on they usually start posing or hiding. My original thought was to look through all of my pictures to see if there were any cute baby pictures with the girls kissing. I found two. Then I had a great idea...reenact it...they love posing right? Well, this is what I've got...
collage one:: June 7, 2005...At 2 1/2 years old Miss O was being so gentle with her new baby sister by kissing her amazingly tiny hand. E was only 11 days old but the bond was already there. Fast forward to February 17, 2010...I now have two big girls with big personalities and an even stronger bond. Can you see it? Just look at those eyes.
collage two:: July 25, 2005...E has a little more baby fat now at 2 months old and O is really embracing her role as big sister. There was a lot of snuggling and even more Eskimo kisses going on back then. Fast forward to February 17, 2010...The girls haven't given each other an Eskimo kiss in a long time so there were lots of little giggles and big belly laughs while they tried to reenact this one. I love it. The look, the adoration, the bond, the love.
