Izzie has learned to "Smile" on command when I get out the camera. I don't know what made her figure it out. I don't usually call out, "Smile!" when I take a picture. But this morning I was really trying to get a picture with both girls in the same frame. (I'm getting more and more impressed when my friends with quads get a picture with all four kids in the picture!) I kept telling the girls, "Stand 'here' so I can take a picture of you together!" Izzie gave me this funny face. Then I realized she was smiling for the camera. So I told her to SMILE! and she did it again and again.
The whole point of the picture exercise was to get them with their purses/bags/totes on that I made for them that match the tote that I made for myself. They did like them. For some reason, after putting them on, they both ran and grabbed their baby strollers and started pushing them around the house. I guess they see me with my bag when I have the stroller out? Then Maddie figured out that she could carry one of her books in her bag and that made it even cooler.
