little lady


{a few free-lensing photos}

Time is such a funny concept. When you need it to hurry up, it takes it’s own sweet time. And just when you wish it would slow down, time seems to speed up. This sweet stage Ellie is in seems to be flying by way too fast. Oh how I desperately wish I could just push pause for one minute during her big belly laughs, or when she makes her silly faces. I’m trying to engrain in my memory all the little details: the way she concentrates so hard when playing with the grass, grabbing her pacifier and trying to get it into mommy or daddy’s mouth, the way she speed scoots across the room whenever I take out my makeup basket, the scrunched up face and fake cough, the way her eyes light up and eyebrows raise whenever she sees something new, or how she pats everything, your face, the tile, the couch, just to feel the texture.

I am so smitten with this little lady of mine and I’m so blessed to be her mother.

    yup, totally agree. time is slow when you want it to be speedy, and way too fast when you don't want it to be.

    ellie is definitely a cute lil' lady.

    These photos are amazing! Trust me you will be so happy later on when you can look at these! S is three and a half years old and I watched a video last week from a little over a year ago and I seriously almost cried at how little she was and I didn't realize that she had grown so much and so quickly.

    I can totally relate. Now that Matix is 15 months old, I am always wanting to remember everything he did as a baby. All his little quirks. Time really does need to slow down in relation to our babies
