i don't want to forget, 2

"Mom, this zebra keeps staring at me!"

i don't want to forget that day at Walmart. that day you discovered the zebra that has been attached to your carseat, following you around for the last 8 weeks. it was just all of a sudden, you saw it and couldn't stop staring at it. i would shake it and make it rattle and that seemed to intrigue you more. i snapped this photo in the check out line and sent it to your dad. he responded with the caption, "mom, this zebra keeps staring at me!". i thought it was hilarious and posted it on instagram (@jessibridges).

it's moments like these that i have to remind myself to stop and savour. i've been terrible about writing down little tidbits of your life; all of the milestones you've hit. it's hard to be so good at memory keeping with 2 under 2. but i need to be better at it. because if i'm not, i'm going to miss or forget moments like these. these perfect little moments; watching you grow and develop and learn and soak in the world around you.

babies are amazing. you are amazing. and an incredible gift from God. every day i am thankful for your sweet little life. you are the perfect addition to our family. i'm excited to continue to watch you grow and discover. and i certainly don't want to forget any of those moments.
