Do you ever wish you can print up photos from your memory?
There are sweet precious moments that I see, feel and experience where no cameras can go...
Like when I feed her and she takes her lady fingers and brings them up to her mouth instead of my breast. When she does this she makes the funniest hungry, moaning sound ever. It is something that I would love to capture and remember for all time.
There are moments when she is resting on my chest while I burp her when she has a perfect smile. No hands ever seem to be free to grab the camera. So I can only sit back and think that smile was only meant for me to see.
When my son plays, I see the peaceful joy on his face, my first thought is always to grab my camera. It never works. A young boy like him never wants his photo taken. It was a hard lesson to learn, but I now know that his moment isn't meant for me to freeze for all time. Him, in that moment was meant for me to stop, breathe it all in and cherish for all time. A moment where no photograph would ever do it justice, because it really was that perfect.
All these perfect moments in motherhood to have, hold on to and cherish because sometimes no camera can ever go there.
