A Portrait A Week: 34/52

“A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013.”

This portrait comes directly from my Instagram feed and was taken in our backyard while getting our daily intake of Vitamin D. Mia loves flipping the (phone) camera on herself, getting to see her own face while I snap the picture of her. I believe they’re calling that a “selfie” these days. Mia takes more of those than I do, which isn’t that hard to do since I rarely take them…if ever. It works out because she’s much cuter than me, anyways.

Speaking of cute, I can’t get over the fact that I created this…person. This whole other BEAUTIFUL person! I mean, those blue eyes…I could stare into them for the rest of my life (that’s actually the plan). Those lips…I could kiss them until they wear off (seriously, I can’t stop..someone should arrange an intervention or something). That button nose…I could give her “Eskimo kisses” until the cows come home (or is it snow dogs in this case?). And although they’re not pictured, her little tushy was perfectly made for squeezing hands and her chubby little thighs fit nicely between my teeth for chewing. I simply can’t get enough of her. She is my greatest masterpiece and my most proud creation. I know she’s lucky to have me as her mother, but it’s ME who can’t figure out how I ended up with the privilege to be Mother to such an amazing and pure little soul. I’m blessed, that’s for certain. And even though her body has been undergoing changes as she grows (and will continue to do so everyday), her loving spirit, warm heart and breathtaking smile still remain constant and strong. I hope that never changes. It’s my duty to protect and preserve those precious qualities the best that I can for as long as I can. And when that time comes where the ugly in our world tries to strip hers down, I will never let her forget who she is. She’s got me on her side and I will be a force NOT to be reckoned with. This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine. Forever.

Here are some of my favorite “portraits” from week 33 (last week):

this moment of sweet slumber (I’m realizing I don’t have any sleeping photos of Mia in months) / I just love a good “sandwich” photo! / If you know me, then you know I’m a sucker for a tushy shot (Great one, Erica!) / there’s something so pure and innocent about bubbles and b&w photos
