Here's a few pictures from late this afternoon. Jonah and his Dad were playing baseball on a field just behind me. Jesse was stuck with me and my big old camera. She sighs through the first few clicks, then, she smiles when I get bit by a mosquito.
That's not very nice.
She looks so nice though. I don't understand.
What is this? Seriously? Do you not know how badly I want a portrait of you my child?
And then she's back to the face I am used to. You might see this as, "Sigh. Please put your camera away woman."
I see the look she gives me when she can't have ice cream for dinner.
I see what's left of those big cheeks.
I see those sweet, baby blues.
I'm thankful to not see anything running from her nose.
I see what I'm going to long for in 10 years.
I see the child that was so excited about reading one Easter and one Valentine's story before bedtime tonight.
I see a child I love all the way to the moon..her moon.
I told her that tonight, and you know what she said? She said, "I love you all the way to the Pumpkin Patch!"
I loved that. We're back to October. In her mind, the pumpkin patch is not very close, but it's just a 45 minute drive North. Goodness, that's forever!
It's good to be back here. Have a great week.
