A few of my favorite shots of her from yesterday . . .
As I go through my pictures, I usually find just one or two that I really love--although sometimes whatever it was I was "going for" I don't find evident in anything I photographed. What is funny to me, in my head I'm thinking "I need a really nice photo to be her '9 year' photo--or Jackson's '5 year' photo." In the end I always love the pictures where they are just being them the best--those are the pictures that truly make me smile. Like all of Jackson's silly pictures . . . don't be surprised if you come to my house and find one in a frame! Someday when I'm old and gray I think it is those pictures that will be so very dear to me. I want to see joy and life and vibrancy and happiness--and I hope it is always there. And just maybe I can freeze it in a picture so I can always remember them just that way.
