If you peruse through past posts, you'll notice that recently Laurel has started posing for the camera. She may have started doing this awhile ago, but now it's so glaringly obvious that Maren has started to get nervous. Check out Laurel's latest photos and understand, the only thing her mother said was, "Let me take your picture, Laurel." She decided to stand sideways and set her shoulders back like that! She hasn't even turned 6 yet! And yes, she is wearing make-up because she was going to her dance dress rehearsal.
These bottom two pictures are self-portraits...a favorite activity of Laurel.
One more thing: Laurel is getting a new tooth. She hasn't lost her baby teeth yet, but a new one is popping up behind her bottom tooth.
