Adeline LOVES this dress, so it was easy to get her to agree to do a short photo shoot. Unfortunately it's quite a bit too big, but that doesn't stop Adeline from thinking it's the most beautiful dress EVER, and she WILL be wearing it to her violin recital and to every other occasion this Christmas and next Christmas too, likely.
Adeline's still not into looking at the camera for some reason, but she's gotten a lot happier about having her picture taken since this summer's no-pictures-please policy. She really wanted pictures of herself playing the violin while wearing her fancy dress. I asked her to try a smile and she said "But I'm always VERY serious when I play my violin".
