What a precious post! I love this - and it is so true for so many of us moms......we just want to have something to remember, later. Hopefully MUCH MUCH later. :)

I second Pamela's emotion. Sometimes I feel like I don't live in the moment enough with the little ones. I love them so. Your pictures are precious.
