"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. " -Audrey Hepburn

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.
