The theme from Tara for The Gallery this week is Body Parts.
This is my daughters hand when she was just a few weeks old.
Everyone says ‘you forget how tiny they are…’.
But, you really do.
I was so amazed by this tiny little girl. Amazed that she was a girl!
I spent hours just watching her. She looked so like her brothers, but with a feminine curve to her face, a girlish cast to her smile. She was in their image, but a finer and more delicate version.
Her hands were so tiny, so perfect. I spent ages trying to get a photo that really conveyed how small and fragile they looked – even against my own hands, which are also tiny! I never managed to get the perfect photo, but I still smile when I see the ones we did take.
Especially those where she is holding my hand. My precious little girl.
