yesterday i was downstairs straightening and trying to wrangle the mountain of laundry when i hear aubrey calling me to come upstairs and play. "come have a tea party with me mommy"...sigh...it sounds terrible but i really wanted to get that laundry done, but after a little persuading i went. so glad i did and half way through i went down to grab my camera.
i know there are so many photos here but i just couldn't help myself.
i see something different in each and every one.
a tilt of the head, a look in her eyes, the way her hair curls, and i just didn't want to forget a second of these moments.
she set this whole thing up and was very intentional about her details.
the strawberries that were in the middle, who got which cup and holding our fingers just so.
"look mommy...this is the way you do it...just like this"
"i'm gonna pretend to sleep mommy and you wake me up and say surprise, it's your birthday"
this one is a bit odd i know but for some reason i love it.
and then of course we had to get silly.
i hope she looks back at these photos some day and knows just how crazy much i love her.
and then i turn around and she's wearing my glasses.:)
have a happy day,
