#40daysoflight: twelve

Alex turns twelve today.

Twelve is the age of electric guitars, extreme music fandom, black nail polish and Sahara-dry wit.

It is also the age of being damned near impossible to get an official portrait.

  "This is my I'm Going To Save The World pose."

"This is my I'm Going To Save The World pose."

  "Oh, wait ... I can be even more intense ..."

"Oh, wait ... I can be even more intense ..."

  I have no idea.

I have no idea.

  Oh dear.

Oh dear.

Eventually, thank goodness, she let me get her good side.

 

Happy birthday, Diva.  Your dad and I are so happy you were born.

(Incidentally, if you wish Alex happy birthday in the comments, could you also mention what city you're currently located?  Alex loves to travel, and I think she'd really enjoy dreaming of visiting all of your towns and cities.)
