Mom set Kate down for a minute right near a window, and the light was just right!

Thanks, D & D! It helps, too, that Kate seems to always sleep with a smile...

Very cute. What a good expression and the light is fabulous. You have two very nice new editor's picks.

Thanks Ruth! Not the landscape shooting I'd like to be doing, but it sure was a photographic opportunity not to be passed up, lol.

I need to go find a mountain around here and nail a sunrise shot before I start getting rusty...

You know, this expression is absolutely priceless. Have you thought about trying a closer crop? Like maybe the same size ratio, but closer in so the face and the bottle are foremost? And her little hand?

Ugh, Ruth, you're absolutely right. I focused on her expression and therefore I didn't look for clutter to eliminate. There's just a bit too much blanket in the foreground. Oh well, maybe a resubmit later this year! I did a quick crop to see what would happen, and Kate's expression sure is more prominent. Maybe this is too tight, but some sort of crop is need, I totally agree. Guess we'll see what the Judges think, but I'm always happy if an image gets an EP, lol.

I hope you enter this cropped one into the expressions category.

Thanks all! Kate makes it easy, she smiles like that all the time when she sleeps.
