Today I am feeling like Saoirse is very small because she is not feeling well and very much depending on me, but I keep thinking about how big she is getting and how quickly. There is something about the kids in the oncology department that has always struck a chord with me. No matter the child or their diagnosis, they always look older than they are. I have found myself thinking about how old a child might be, only to find out that he or she is much younger. It seems like Saoirse has been growing up faster than ever. Her expressions seem to be so far beyond her years, and she seems to have life pretty figured out for now. I've been working on trying to capture some of her more "big girl" moments, and sometimes the pictures surprise even me. One of the doctors at sloan made the comment that many of the kids she sees are more mature because the spend so much time in an adult dominated world. That could be the key to their mature faces, or it could be the bald heads.
So in an effort to regain my baby's babyhood, I leave you with some bubbles!
