remember

do you remember when one of your favorite things to do was play with your shadow? i do. we went out to get pictures of a new tutu i made but instead she just wanted to dance with her shadow. i couldn't help but smile with her, she laughing the whole time.

sometimes i wish i could stop time, have her snuggle me forever, kiss me forever. sometimes i wish that she will always want me to sing her songs, tuck her in at night and always be by her side. i wish she could have danced forever today.

Those pictures just melt my heart! Riley looks like such a little angel. Doesn't that kind of thing really make you sit back and wonder why life seems so stressful sometimes?

oh my gosh! i love this. first, she is so adorable. second, you are looking like a professional photographer here. they could be in a magazine- i love them! please frame one and put it in her ballerina room. next, i know what you mean about keeping them this way. i could cry about it all the time but i try not to dwell.

Those shots of Ry are are so stinkin' precious and I am proud to say that that soon to be famous ballerina gave me a big ole hug just a few days ago.

And not to ditto everyone else but sheesh, those pictures are amazing and that tutu is the cutest - you really do need to put those in her room...sounds like we need a trip to Hobby Lobby for some frames!
