Photo of the day: Taking my time

Taking my time, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
Sadie watched the others play in the pool for well over an hour before finally deciding to "take the plunge" and sit on the edge of the pool to watch for a while, with her feet dangling in the water. She never did actually get in and swim, but she had a lot of fun working up the courage to almost do so!

Sadie's also shy about the camera, so when I saw her sitting on the edge of the pool, I thought, now how can I get a picture of that without her ducking for cover? So, I quietly moved up behind her and snapped the photo from her own point of view, watching in stillness as all the kinetic energy flows around her. Her back was lit by the light coming in the windows behind us, and with those pigtails I think she's just about the cutest thing around.

P.S. She caught me, eventually, which is a cute picture too, but a little blurred!
