As mamas we are always trying to stop time and make it go faster, too, somehow.
My camera can do this, I think. And Janie's getting goofier, says odd things, spins all the time, loves to color, loves to do her Go, Diego, Go! theme song dance (see wild flipping hair below).
In these moments, and somehow in the in-between moments, I see a glimpse of corn-colored hair on the sofa, of an out-of-focus smile bursting through light, and I am so glad I'm there with my camera. So glad I'm just there.
Cheers to spinning crazy like a kid and moments between moments, then, when we know we are lucky.
