Less than two
I came across this tonight while looking for something else. I just love it. Taken at a wedding at Lake Macdonald in Glacier Park.
It was the summer before Dessi turned two, and she was a handful. Challenging, obstinate, difficult overall, flush with humiliating tantrums and snottiness. More than once I drank wine while she had an afternoon nap. Our worst few months ever as a mamma-baby team. And then moments like this, full of wonder and intimacy and not another person in the world but us.
