Blast from the Past: Ballerina Huck

You're smiling, aren't you?

How can you not when looking at this gorgeous thing?

Emma was three when I shot this photo. Obviously, we were on our way to (or maybe just back from) ballet class. She very purposefully put her hat on backwards and arranged it so it felt just right.

No, she wasn't trying to be stylish. And she wasn't trying to ham it up. She was simply getting into character -- her favorite character: Huckleberry Pie from Strawberry Shortcake.

We don't know why she was obsessed with Huck, but for six hysterical months, she would refuse to acknowledge us unless we called her Huck.

Then one day, just as quickly as it started, the Huck phase was over.

It was just such a wonderful three year old thing!
