Our Little Miss SaiGon

This young lady has been so hard to photograph lately.  Full of cheesy grins or better yet, running when I get the camera out.

My SaiGon beauty.  

My tiny little petite peanut, who is 5 1/2 years old, and not quite 30 pounds yet, has grown so big.  A contradiction I know.  
So I'm over the moon that I was able to capture these in celebration of New Years.  In VietNam I picked up a bevy of Ao Dais up to probably age 18.    I love it as she grows in to them!  But even the smallest 2, this turquoise one and a red one, are still huge on her.  

This black and white, below, is my favorite, probably just because she looking straight at me, through me really, with those amazing eyes of hers.  For all you mamas and papas who have dealt with attachment issues, you know what a huge deal this is.
And despite the fact that she's still so little, these make me wonder where the time flies away too.  I miss the days her entire sleeping body fit on my chest and I could feel her breathing on me. 
And I'm remember to savor every little moment of her right here and right now. 

Linking up with Simple Things Sunday and Sunday Snapshot.

  14. Gorgeous photos of gorgeous Tess. I love the colors but I really like the black and white photo at the top showing the umbrellas in the background. It seems black and white photos just strip away everything and you just focus on the face and what a face this girl has. :D
