the little things
We have lots of great pictures of Cora. I am so thankful for each one of them. Those pictures really are treasures. But as I look back at the pictures I took of Cora, I think I was often too worried about everything looking perfect. I probably passed up taking pictures of the cute little things she did because the house was too messy or I hadn't gotten her dressed yet or I didn't like how I looked. And now that she is in heaven, I so wish I had taken more pictures of the little things she did; her funny habits and the little things that made up our everyday...even if everything wasn't perfect.
I think about that a lot more as I take pictures of Levi. What are the things I want to remember about him as a one year old? What are the everyday things that make up his day? Like those little chubby feet.
When Levi is playing by himself, I'll often walk back into the room and find him sitting with his feet crossed. I love how he plays and plays and those little feet stay crossed the whole time.
It is a little thing. But something that will always remind of Levi as a one year old.
Chubby crossed feet.
