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.

We went to the park the other day for Mama to take a few pictures. Ha! Yeah right. With all the trails and informatin signs set out, Mama taking pictures was the last thing on her mind. It turned into a great little adventure though as she told us all about snakes and alligators and any other wild creature she could think of.

 Just so you know... You can pet an alligator as long as it's friendly and has flat teeth!

I get a bright eyed face saying "close your eyes Mama!" and handing me the most special flowers I'll ever have. The kind her little hands picked out of the backyard just for me. They might be weeds, bushes, roses, or whatever but they're the most beautiful flowers in the world because she picked them just for me.

If Mama does it, she does it. Only when she does it, eyeshadow is all over her face. I know little boys come with their own charm but I always wanted a little girl.

God knew what he was doing.

Our days are filled with twirly dresses, make up parties, dance class, and baby dolls. There's also plenty of tools, John Deere tractors, and getting dirty. I wouldn't change a thing.

Fierce. That's how I describe my protective instincts of my daughter. Some think "of course you're protective". No, it's beyond that. It's a gut wrenching, heart aching, I would do anything in this world I needed to do to keep my baby safe feeling. There is no limit. PERIOD.
