Taste Life Twice

Never did I ever think the clinking of plastic bobbles could fill me with giggling joy. But it's true. I hear her across the room as I sit at the computer and she is gurgling and cooing and clinking.

It wasn't too long ago I remember a friend telling me how her baby was swinging on her own. I thought to myself ... you've had that baby a while now and all it can do is swing? But that was before. I do wonder sometimes if I am completely annoying some people with my over zealous 'it's all baby all the time.'

But to tell you the truth if I had to do it all over again so far the only thing I would do differently is to take more pictures, write more posts, share more video. And while I have wondered if taking time out to do these things takes away from the moment I have decided it doesn't. It doesn't take away from the moment if you make taking the moment your way of life.

I count the weeks these days. I count them every time someone asks how old she is. The number changes so fast it makes my head spin. We are screaming through those developmental changes. She has already changed so much.

Taking pictures, writing, recording video ... its the only way I know to slow it down and savor the moment twice.

"We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospection." -- Anais Nin

Tasting life twice ... it's not just for writers anymore.

See her in action!
