If I Didn’t Have a Phone Camera

Dear Hannah Joy,

If I didn’t have a phone camera I wouldn’t have been able to capture these candid moments.

Like here where you feel asleep still playing.  I have so many cute sleeping pictures of you.


Or this one in your first pair of jeans.  You were pretty excited about them.

Here is your first taste of solid foods.  You were pretty confused.

I mean come on.  You have just stolen our hearts.

I didn’t put this on you this way.  This is just how we found you  when we arrived at our destination.  I think you liked it – you just took advantage of it and fell asleep.  Holding a toy.

This one happened when we were out shopping and were trying on headbands.  I sent a text of this picture to your daddy and let him think that we bought it.

What to even say?  You are my little doll.

We had just bought you this soft blanket and you were just in heaven.  By the way, notice that little tiger.  You love him so much.

This is your first time sitting up in a cart.  You LOVED it.  You squealed all through the store.  And you are my little Miss Social.  You want to make eye contact with every.single.person and engage them in some sort of exchange.   You make my shopping trips a lot longer.

We have recently discovered that you LOVE Cinderella.  You will watch the entire movie and you especially love the little mice.

Here your daddy and I were watching a movie.  But you just sat there watching us.

This was the first time you ever saw snow.  I sat you by the glass door so you could watch it falling.  You were totally mesmerized.

Sometimes I will find photos like this of you with one of your cousins.  They adore you.

And as for one of my favorite photos ever?

This was on Halloween and Grandma gave you a sucker.  Turns out it was sour.

Oh… we just love you!
