An amazing little girl

After my baby's first birthday party I had the opportunity to take some pictures of a friend's daughter. Kiyra is a beautiful two year old that loves to chit-chat and place dress up. She's all girl and loves dresses. For two, Kiyra is like any other toddler, curious about her world, but there's also one thing that sets her apart; Kiyra is trilingual. Kiyra's father, Cristian, is from Chile and her mother, Yi, is from China. I have a couple friends that have children that can fluently speak both English and Spanish, but Kiyra can also speak Chinese. It's so fun to listen to Kiyra switch from either language while speaking to her parents without even hesitating. It's awesome that Cristian and Yi chose to teach Kiyra their native languages. It's even more amazing to listen to this little two year old girl speak three different languages with such ease. Kiyra, it was fun to chase you around the garden, you were so patient knowing there was a playground only a few feet away.
