Through Her Eyes

Today I showed Alba a waterfall. Not just any waterfall, but the waterfall that Oregon is so famous for.

Since I have seen Multnomah falls more times than I can count, I forgot to remember that this was her first time taking it in. I tried convincing her to take a selfie, and then stopped myself halfway through my second, “Come on baby, look at the camera!” … In that moment, I got to witness one of her firsts. I remember the first time I saw the majesty of the falls in Oregon. I remember how powerful and beautiful they felt.

Instead of a selfie, I snapped this image.

Mulnomah-Falls

A photo of my baby girl seeing this beauty for the first time. A photo of her learning. A photo of her seeing what made her dad and I want to move out here.

As the cool mist danced all around us, I took my own moment to soak it in.

This is parenthood, and I love it!
