Since my daughter was born in January 2009, she has blessed me daily with quick, heartfelt smiles. And daily I have tried to capture them on camera. But as quickly as they appeared, they disappeared.
Until this past Monday when I caught one just before it disappeared.
I've been a mom for 17 years. Until January, I was a mom to only boys - three of them. And while I cherished their every smile, there is just something about seeing your daughter's face light up.
Maybe it's because I never expected to have a daughter. Maybe it's because a void has been filled. Maybe it's because she was a miracle baby.
Maybe it's simply because....she's my daughter.
