Project 52

This last year I came across a fabulous Mommy-photographer-DIYer-and all around great person that opened my eyes to the Project 52 idea. Thank you Shawna from styleberryblog. What a beautiful way to chronicle the year and share the feelings that only motherhood can open your soul to. I want my daughter to know what joy she brings into our lives and the lessons she teaches us. I don't want to miss one minute of it or let these sweet memories fade. This is for you Aubrey... My daughter, my joy, and my life.

That's what comes to mind when I look at these eyes. Full of laughter and happiness. And the way they light up for Mama and Daddy... ahhh... They melt me. I don't know where the grey came from but I could get lost in them.

Even if she's not old enough to remember everything, what she will  know is that Mama put effort into making things special for her. She can look back back at her childhood pictures and feel the love. She will always know how very much she means to us.

She loves this bar. I mean SHE LOVES THIS BAR. I remember when she could barely reach and was unsure what to do but not any longer. If she has a chance to swing on it, she will. Over. And over. And over. And over...

She got it! Thanks to a little Ga help SHE GOT IT! Jumping off the diving board, swimming underwater (with amazing breath control), and floating. A couple of new faces encouraging her and she did it. I'm still in shock at how fast  it happened. Literally one day to the next. Proud Mama moment indeed. Thanks Toni and Jennifer!

She's a mess... And she has my heart with every little giggle.
