Little Hands & Fingers {So I Don’t Forget} ~ San Antonio Lifestyle Photographer

Little hands and fingers have me thinking today…Maddy’s hands have that sweet, chubby toddler quality that will soon be gone…she is growing so fast (too fast). I just want to hit the pause button sometimes,but unfortunately she didn’t come with one. I’ve asked her if she could stop getting so big, so fast…she just says (matter-of-factly) “No, Mama” and shakes her head. So, I have to document as much as I can so I don’t forget anything because this is the stuff worth remembering…these are the things I want to re-live and experience again when I miss them. If only it worked that way…

When those sweet, chubby toddler hands grow and change, I’ll miss…

  • Little hands that cup my face…
  • Little hands that love to clap…
  • Little fingers raised to say “shh”…
  • Little hands that pat me on the back when she hugs me…
  • Little hands constantly exploring…
  • Little fingers that pick each sprinkle off of her ice cream one by one…
  • Little hands that rest on my shoulder when she is tired…
  • Little hands that put her shoes on the wrong feet…
  • Little hands that hold on to me for balance as she puts on her pants…
  • Little fingers that touch my phone and computer screen leaving smudge marks…
  • Little fingers pointing at something new and exciting…
  • Little hands that are sticky…
  • Little fingers with imaginary owie’s needing kisses to make them all better…
  • Little fingers that play in the dirt…
  • Little hands that touch the wall as she comes down the stairs…
  • Little fingers that push the buttons on the “hi” so she can pretend to call dada…
  • Little hands that grab her Baby Night Night purse as we leave to go bye-bye…
  • Little hands that hold mine as we walk…
  • Little hands that wave good-bye when I leave the house…
  • Little hands that leave food on the back of my clothes…
  • Little hands that put blush on her cheeks when she plays with my make-up…
  • Little hands not quite sure of how to be gentle yet…
  • Little fingers that she puts near her mouth when she is about to cry…
  • Little hands that brush her hair out of her face…
  • Little hands that love to color with “cwayons”…
  • Little hands that bring me “fowers”…
  • Little fingers that touch her eyes, nose, and belly button when she shows me how smart she is…
  • Little hands that play with my hair…
  • Little hands that hold Baby Night Night…
  • Little hands that cover her eyes when we play peek-a-boo…
  • Little hands that put on her pink, glittery sun glasses when we go outside…
  • Little fingers used to make bubbles…
  • Little hands that pat me on the leg when she wants my attention…
  • Little hands raised in the air asking for hugs…
  • Little hands used to blow kisses…
