Photo taken by big sister (Aliyah, age 4).
Sometimes you look through photos and feel yourself drawn right back into the moment. The sounds whispering through the open window of a couple of birds playing a game of chase and the random car or two driving down the street, while the soft rain-soaked air filters it's way through the screen. The large, stuffed giraffe laying on the floor, a fallen victim to Brayden's boyish antics. The way his big round oceans look up at me as he says, "UUUUp, UUUUp," a clear indication that he's ready to be held. The way my big girl keeps striving to be just that... a big girl that can handle mommy's big camera like a pro. And of course any suggestion to be careful with it is heeded with a sigh, a sigh telling me that she knows. And after each few shutter clicks, she runs over to show me, waiting for the proud mama smile to cross my face and I don't disappoint.
I look at this photo and I remember, I feel, it all. Just us... in the moment.
