Our little pumpkin
Sometimes, you take a picture and you instantly know in your heart of hearts that its very existence will embarrass your child for the rest of his or her life.
This image, which I have loved to bits and pieces since the day I took it just over 2-and-a-half years ago, is of Noah in his pumpkin costume. I'm not sure why he was so serious at that moment - he's usually so happy. I think our then-three-year-old may have been tuckered out from the effort of getting the thing on.
I'm sorry that they grow so quickly that they fit into things like this for a mere blink of time. I'm sorry that we don't take more pictures like this to remember these magical little moments. I'll try to rectify that in the years to come.
Your turn: A memorable moment in a child's life, captured. Discuss...
