free as a bird now

freebird


She's not yet two, but she puts her head back and closes her eyes

and excites at the wind and freedom

already

and this makes me so so so very very happy.

  11. There is just something about watching a child swing - the breeze in their hair, the excitement that lights up their face and the overall sheer joy that seems to radiate from their little bodies. They are so caught up in the moment it is as if if everything else seems to fade away and not matter. And, as a mom, all of a sudden you too start to feel all the pressure and stress fade away for a few brief fleeting seconds as you get lost in the moment that is their innocence of childhood.

    Great capture Steph! I love it!
