I’m reviewing a new DVD from photographer Nick Kelsh where he says,
There’s a moment in all parents’ lives when they realize there’s a big kid where their baby once was.
I’ve had lots and lots of those moments, and they always make me sad.
This moment wasn’t really one of those times. Gracie and I and my mom were playing in my mom and dad’s front yard. The trees are full of big wind chimes with beautiful voices, and Grace loves making them all sing.
She looked – and acted – every moment of her two years as she ran around the yard laughing.
But then, when I looked at the pictures on my laptop, I saw a happy girl looking back at me.
A happy girl who bears little resemblance to the baby I used to play with.
