In Her Eyes

Sometimes she’s here — fully present, eyes filled with light. 
Other times she’s gone — eyes vacant, staring off at some unseen point. Unseen by us, anyway. 
Where does she go when she disappears? Is she daydreaming or processing something new; filing experiences away for later? Or is her mind quietly resting after performing a taxing challenge?
The moments when her eyes lock onto mine and I know she’s completely with me, are happening more and more these days. It’s a beautiful thing.
So when she brought home her school photo this year, I had to have it. This is one of the first photos where she truly connects with the camera and she’s smiling with her eyes. And like I said, it’s a beautiful thing. 🙂
