Genetics

EVERY once in awhile, we're able to capture a photo of our Leah in her usual, happy state. But as a general rule, when it comes to smiling for the camera - She will have NONE of it.



It's as though she's determined to appear UNhappy

This has been a continual source of frustration. That is...until last week when, while sorting through my childhood photos, I came across pictures like this one - taken by my dad when I was four.

Clearly, the apple does not fall far from the tree.



I have since forgiven Leah, and would like to take this opportunity to publicly apologize to my parents.

It is true that Leah is usually so smiley! Funny that she doesn't smile like that for your cam... maybe this is her small rebellion and I personally think that picture of you turning down the corners of your mouth is priceless.

lol. Oh, Katie. That picture of you is quite possibly the funniest thing EVER. I miss you guys! I feel like we saw you all the time last year, so now I'm having withdrawals. I vote we induce a Gordo + Trice wedding so we can all get together before Christmas. :) Or when is baby boy Erb's birthday? Maybe we could come see you guys after that. Any names picked yet?

I love how you have to FORCE the frown. Leah is just a doll. If she puts it all out there on camera, it leaves nothing to the imagination.

I never would have believed that was you in a million years frowning. Thanks for the laugh!

My dad passed away 16 years ago, but I still consider Father's Day an occasion to celebrate. I plan a favorite dinner and pick out ...
