For Best Shot Monday, Tracey's title is "Monday's Gifts" and it is so appropriate for my photos today. I share a lot of photos of my Sarah, but really, I am in awe of this little beauty every time I look at her. As she approaches two, I am seeing new things in her that I didn't see before. She has always, always been a precious, amazing baby. But sometimes I was overwhelmed with the lack of sleep and the constant whining and the dragging of everyday with two young babies and I didn't always slow down and look at the beautiful, lovely, incredible person who was emerging before me.
Today when I look at my daughter, I see such personality. She is a girl who loves to wear pretty shoes and pink tights and dresses and say, "Daddy, yook, preeetty!" She will let Mommy fix her hair in pigtails as long as we use pink hair bands. She loves a good nightgown, and takes care of her baby dolls, always taking them "shopp-eeeng." She has a ridiculous sense of humor and is downright silly. She can hold her own in a disagreement with such conviction, such passion and determination. She believes in herself so truly and wholly and knows that what she thinks is the only option merely because she believes it.
