A young toddler is in focus with a white circle around her head and shoulders while the rest of the image is slightly out of focus. The girl has light brown hair in a high ponytail, is wearing a navy blue dress with pink bows, and is crying. Her mom is out of focus behind her with her hands on her head showing frustration. The mom is wearing a light blue button down and khaki pants. The rest of the background is their living room with a beige couch, brown diaper bag, toys on the floor, and an table with lamp, clock and travel coffee mug on it.

In this moment I will remember she's just a baby.
