I love that a picture captures a moment in time. That it freezes a smile when they weren't readily handed out. That it gives you a glimpse of personality. That as you look at it you can only image what a day holds for a growing mind. And for that brief moment you know a whole morning overshadowed by a need for a nap and a snack was completely successful in showing a happy, curious, 18 month old. I am so glad that on especially this day, that's exactly what these photos accomplished.
