Seeing this little girl has made us realize just how quickly our children have grown up. So many moments have come and gone and were never photographed or written about. I can't remember what my first baby girl's hands looked like when she was born. Trivial, maybe, but seeing how much she is pulling away from us as she matures as a young woman makes me wish that I could, even just for a moment, remember what those precious hands looked like.
With Baby E, we have a whole new appreciation for every little detail. I want to not only blog about it for our own record, but to help our family and friends share in our joy. Maybe by doing so I can help shorten the distance between us all, even if only poetically.
