I know very well it's simply science, but the whole idea of a photo kind of feels like magic.
Like we've found an amazing way to cheat our memory. Occasionally, I'll look over old photos and instantly think, "I probably would have never thought about this moment again had it not been for this photo." To be able to put a little pin in our heads, jogging it remember that that moment did happen.
I love and am mesmerized by the idea of capturing a moment of time. Which brings me to my next point... it wasn't until recent years and the birth of my nephew that I had any clue how quickly babies grow. Hey, I don't spend a lot time with kids. Unfortunately, I don't get to see the little guy on the regular so every time I'm back in PA, I swear the kid is practically a whole new person. How did that little blue eyed babe turn into this clever and and funny toddler with endless energy. Science. Again. So while I love nothing more than to see him grow, it's amazing to be able to look back at who he once was.
This little doll is Sadie, or sweetly referred to by her older brother as Sadie Lady. She's very much so as sweet as she looks- hardly cries, loves to people watch, the definition of 'chill'. So far, she's the ultimate cool girl.
