I did a little digging through my archives to find my daughters Halloween portraits from the last 7 years… I’m missing one year… when she was just over a year old. I can’t even remember what she was that year… there are some more harddrives at home I can look through. Weird how time passes so quickly and when you are in the moment, parenting, you can’t possibly imagine forgetting anything… and then before you know if the years are all mixed together and you can’t quite remember what happened when… is this just me!?

Today I am grateful for portraits. When I look at these images of my baby girl, it all comes flooding back. I want to squeeze her and hold her forever.

Tomorrow will be her eighth Halloween. We’re very excited about her costume, half handmade, have pieced together by things we already had. I’ll reveal her outfit tomorrow on Instagram… :)

Happy Halloween!!
