We went to the mall this weekend - and at first I was hesitant to take out my big honkin camera! But - after I took a picture of one of my girls and someone was like - WOW - I have camera envy - and they admired I was taking pictures - it made it a lot easier.
If I was afraid to take out my camera - I would so easily forget moments like this:
Where Hayden is exploring Express for the first time - wishing they had clothes in her size.
And seeing high heels and wanting her size - in a pink glittery color of course!
Or Brianna's first trip into Justice.
Asking me to take her picture.
Not being embarrassed to walk around the mall with her mom!
Her first trip into the changing room - insisting to go in alone and that she needs "privacy please!"
Or shopping for her first pair of earrings to replace the ones she got her ears pierced with.
Those big moments you'll never forget, like the first words and the first steps - but it's those in-between moments (like trips to the mall) that are sometimes are the ones you long to remember! So remember to take some pictures in the in-between.
