But when my normally camera-shy cutie decides to flash her gorgeous smile for the camera when we are outside on a picture-perfect day, well then, I'll just be content to let those little details go and enjoy the moment.
Months before she entered this world, I knew that she would be my Caroline Grace. In my mind's eye, I could just see the sweet smocked dresses and matchy-matchy hair bows that would adorn my little princess.
But as she grew, in stature and...ahem... personal preference, the girly-girl attire was quickly exchanged for a pair of gym shorts and flip-flops. And hair accessories? Forgetaboutit.
And sometimes questions arise about what this journey is going to be like and what it might mean for all involved. Questions that a momma and daddy can't really answer because they don't know themselves. At least not yet.
I love her willingness to be honest. And her willingness to trust.
And I simply cannot wait to see what the Lord has planned for my sweet, sensitive Carly Grace.
