First off does it fit the challenge? Yes I think it does... although I didn't vote on that specific challenge because I had some difficulties wrapping my head around the challenge subject. However I think that this does.

Now on to the specifics of the photo.

Compositionally it looks pretty good... Although I think that I would have liked to have seen possibly a little more cropped off both the top and the left side of the image so that the subject really filled the frame.

In terms of where you were standing I'm wondering if you might have been able to get down more on her level to shoot up slightly to get more of her face? and maybe just to the right? although of course with a candid it's a little more difficult to be this picky.

Good dof, blurring out the background... very important as too much of the background really would have taken our eyes away from the main subject.

In terms of colors and it looks perhaps a tad light... but you do have all the textures etc. in it, so I think it's ok. I would have perhaps like to see this in black and white?

The image maybe looks a TAD soft... applying a bit of unsharp mask at the end might have helped, because compression can do that to you. Unless you like the softness as it is a child who is the subject.

Overall really nice image... just a couple of things with that extra cropping might have made it that much better (IMHO). You have a gorgeous subject here, and should have lots of fun shooting her as she gets older.
