Photo of the Week

It wasn't necessarily any special.  Maybe it was just the way the light seemed to fill everything so I could see things very clearly.  Maybe it was my vantage point.  The girls and I normally sit right beside each other to eat, but on this particular morning, I decided to sit across from her...and she was so small.

She has seemed so small to me lately.  Last night when she crawled into my bed and I wrapped my arms around her...she was so small.  When her feet rested against my legs to listen to music and read a story together...she was so small.  When she came to me and whispered, "I have a secret...I love you," she seemed so small.

I forget because I'm constantly in a state of amazement at how smart, talented and kind she is.  It's because of this that the tiny whispers of "I'm scared, mommy" throw me off and make me remember, she's still just a baby.  My little baby who wraps her arms around me so tight during the day, and at night, just lies in my arms in complete trust.  She's just a baby.

Until next time...

What a fantastic collage! I love everything about the photos, the light, the colors and your sweet girl. Sometimes we do need to take a step back and remind ourselves just how little they are! Sweet post.

Thank you Tish, Sarah and Molly. I too love the collage and I agree about taking a step back. I guess that was what I did and it just made me very aware of her age, her disposition, everything. And Molly, I'm sure I will feel the same when the girls get older!
