When she was an infant she had a trill when she cried… it was awful, but I kind of miss it, because it was uniquely her.
Whenever she heard music she would bounce her belly and spin her feet in circles. It was so adorable, it hurt.
Christmas time this year she would say “WOW” at everything. The way that she would shape her mouth was priceless.
I can’t count those “little things” that she did, those little moments I would give anything to freeze in time.
I get a lump in my throat when I realize that those moments are gone. I know that there will be countless “little things” that she will continue to do, but I can’t help but want to capture those other things, and I feel a little helpless that I can’t.
How do you do it moms? How do you capture those “little things”? How do you seal those memories in your mind or make note of them so you won’t forget?
Joe and I began a Dear Anniston gmail account when she was born. It’s a way to give her a picture into these early years, to share her story with her. But that account is for her, how do we sear these memories into our minds, store these memories for ourselves?
Tell me mamas, how do you it?
