Where does time go? Not only has it been several weeks since I've posted, but I was organizing pictures this afternoon and was amazed at how little my baby used to be.

I think that is one of the things I love about pictures -- how it freezes a moment in time. While visiting my grandparents a few weekends ago, Grandma pulled out a box of black and white pictures of when she and Grandpa were young and when Mommy was a little girl. Precious to see!

Now my phone camera definitely isn't the best quality, but I recently read that"the best camera is the one you have with you."  And since my phone is usually within reach, it has captured a few highlights from the past few weeks that you won't find on my 'big' camera (and yes, most of them revolve around the cutest baby girl who just happens to live at my house!)

Blue eyes. Brown eyes.

"I read all my books, Mommy -- now I'm reading yours!"

-- early morning hot apple cider and Daily Bread --

-- snuggling with mommy --

Watching it snow...snow...snow.

So many sweet pictures! And that's right...I use phone camera way more than my "real" camera. It's way handier! :-)

Oh, so sweet. I really like the one snuggling with Mommy. She's a beautiful little girl. You are blessed. Can't believe she's that big and sitting up and all.
