“I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and… I believe in miracles. “
the baby of our family is turning 3 next tuesday. this has brought much emotion to my heart. i’ve realized that the way i parent her and react to things is so different than i did with our first. things i wanted to fix or change with our oldest daughter, i now somehow just want to remember. and not just remember this time, but remember every little detail of her. i want to hold on to the crazy things she says. to never forget the nutty outfits she chooses to wear. i want to remember the trouble and mischief she finds. i i know too well, from having two older children that these times will be a distant memory before we know it.
so now instead of hurrying to change these moments; i choose to grab my camera and freeze them the only way i know how.
