As I organize and review my daily tasks, there is one that is a critical to-do item and that is to take a picture of my daughter and send it to my closest family members.
This daily task has helped me capture pictures of my daughter and document her growth the past 20 months.
Our brain tends to ignore small changes in those we see very day. If you are a parent, there is no better feeling of seeing your children grow healthy. Trying to document every detail just using your memory is an impossible task.
I have saved a huge collection of images of my daughter. Once in a while I go back and I check on the images and realize how in such little time she has grown so much.
She now talks and exchanges words with me. I tend to forget how months ago she was such a tiny human being crying for food. She has evolved into a toddler full of energy who will ask for food and water. Her evolution from infant to toddler has been amazing to watch.
Capturing those moments will help serve as a legacy of sharing my daughter’s story.
If you are a new parent, I highly recommend you start taking a picture a day of your child and storing them so in the future you can see the beauty of how mother nature takes us from one stage to another.
