Alphabitty Moments - The Letter H

Welcome to Alphabitty Moments! I love the accountability to come here every Thursday and record at least one little moment from Elsa's 2nd year for her photobook collection. I take a LOT of pictures but often times I struggle to not skip over the less than perfect ones when it's time to put together albums. Using Instagram for this year's book has been a good exercise in focusing on what matters - capturing those precious moments before they are gone.

I chose H is for Holding Hands this week because as busy and independant as Elsa is I don't know how long she's going to be willing to hold someone's hand and go where THEY want to go.

This particular photo is special to me because it was the longest time she's ever held someone's hand and the sight of my oldest and youngest together like this made my heart skip a beat. It was so touching the way Sam slowed down to her pace.

I am so grateful for the tenderness both Sam and Julia have for Elsa. It is one of the most beautiful things I get to experience as a mom. Their attitude may change as they get older but I pray it doesn't and just in case, I have this image in my heart.

What Alphabitty Moment do you want to remember this week? Leave a link in the comments and/or use the hashtag #AlphabittyMoments on Instagram (I'm 4MamaBear). There aren't any rules for which letter you start with or share a link to...just have fun with it!



  1. Here are my B, C and F moments as one post. I will do "H" as soon as I can think of one. But I might have to steal your "holding hands" idea because my heart just melts when my kids do that :)

  2. What a *precious* picture...... Xoxo GiGi
