Ever have one of those moments when you come across a picture you haven't seen for a while and the emotional reaction is profound? Today as I was sitting down at the computer to check e-mails I saw the above snapshot laying in a pile I was planning to scan into the computer. Looks pretty mundane you say? It is but it's the memory of this vacation that is brought back that catches my breath. On this trip to DisneyWorld, back in December of 2002 is where I 'lost' my baby.......sigh. You see, Julia had just turned two only days before and it was on this vacation that I could not help but see how very grown up she was becoming! This face painting picture is an example!! She marched herself right into line with the 'big girls' and declared "I'm getting my face pretty too!"....and she sat right up in the chair and without one wiggle let them paint her face. Then she posed for this picture...can't you just see the "yeah, I'm good!" look on her face?!?!?! As hard as I looked around that park I never did find my baby ever again.....well maybe a glimpse every now and again when she'd tuck that sippy cup under her arm.
