Stella loves iPhones. Her favorite things include playing “The Monkey Game,” (Lunchbox) and taking pictures and videos. Actually, her favorite thing is looking at the pictures, which she tries to do while you’re still taking them. Hence, the photo above in which her eyes are ALMOST closed. I believe at the moment of the photo, she was reaching for the phone.
Brody has his moments of shyness, which is why he was hiding under the kitchen table as I snapped this photo (he had a tutu on, though).
Which is why I keep the iPhone handy. You never know when Brody’s going to pull a pajama stunt like this one.
It’s hard to convince myself that leaving now is okay. I don’t want them to forget me, and I certainly don’t want to miss out on these awesome moments of their childhood. Recently, I’ve been taking more pictures and videos of them. You can’t stop time – can’t even slow it down – but you can savor the moments you have.
