she's very cute - - -

maybe shorten her chin a bit because of her age.
Also, a little more difference in values would be good. Darker darks, lightest values around the face?
Right now it looks like the brightest highlights are off in the lower right corner, which you probably didn't intend to be the focal point.

she looks soo sweet! I agree about adding some contrast but perhaps you wanted very light. Nice painting!

ok i think that a young child would be sleeping in subdued lighting and and there would not be much contrast or highlight so i rekon great the way it is, with the drapes close.

Aye, this is one of those pictures that prompts a smile, and perhaps some personal reflection of times past. Lovely to see pictures like this. :)

She's very sweet! You captured that "sleeping/breathing" mouth, beautifully.

I too, miss the contrast and would like to see some darks. Maybe a dark (as the value used in her mouth) can be used in the area where her hand tucks under her cheek.

Otherwise, wonderful composition and image!

She is so sweet! I too agree with the contrast, maybe soften up the nostrils, and the space between the lips and then just lightly dust a little more shadow under the nose on the side that she is laying on! Otherwise great composition, it truly captures the sweetest moments of childhood!
