I don't want to forget.

Below is an instagram post I put up the other day. I wanted to post it here, too, because the small moments are what I don't want to forget. Tantrums will come and go, but I want to choose to remember the good moments forever. Norah actually communicated with me and it was so incredible!


Norah doesn't like to stand still for pictures really, so I caught this mid-run. Today she threw the worst fit in public she's ever thrown at the pharmacy (why can't I take all those pretty bottles of pills and throw them on the floor?), but then was as sweet as could be this afternoon. She legitimately helped me clean up her toys and for the first time she clearly communicated what she wanted to me of her own will. (She said/signed eat. She will say it in response to us, but had never initiated it herself before, and it was around snack time.) Whether up or down, good or bad, it's all so worth it and heart-exploding.

  1. It's the little things that melt a momma's heart and constantly remind us that these little people truly are a gift from God! I need to be better about recording them!

    1. Yes, so true! This is our first, so I feel like I can keep better track, but I hope to keep it up just the same with our next child(ren) too (although I'm sure it will be much harder!).
