The 4th Edition of Smile for the Camera calls for participants to reflect on their favorite photograph.  There are so many pictures in my collection, it’s so hard, but, I can say that this is my favorite picture of me.

I chose to put the picture in a digital scrapbook layout called “Spring Tulips” by Jennie Papai.  My mother took me to take this picture when I was about 9 months old and we were living in New York.  My favorite aspect about the picture is that I am holding my name in block letters.  This may sound vain, but I’ve always had a “thing” about seeing my name in print, about hearing my name being called. I truly love my name, it is unique and I am glad that my mother chose it for me.  Yeah, I had a big head, but I still love me :-)

This is my first time participating in the Smile for the Camera carnival, and only my second time participating in a carnival at all.  Perhaps after these GeneaBlogger Games, I’ll be more likely to participate! It is interesting to read what everyone contributes.
