*The photo posted earlier was removed. I didn't realize that the Editor of Photography had given me a shot that was almost the same as the one I posted last week, with the only difference being the winking dog in the background. The EoP has been placed on probation without pay pending investigation.
We call this the "Marlie face." Her pediatrician refers to it as her "poker face," telling us we should get her a pair of sunglasses and send her off to Vegas for the World Series of Poker. She usually flashes this when she's giving something her utmost consideration or when she knows you're wanting her to do something cute. I have a feeling that this face will cost me some money during Toys R Us visits in the not-so-distant future.
