I am pretty sure my phone still works as a device by which I can communicate audibly with another person... but its other functions (like the camera) are much more valuable to me most of the time. I love being able to capture the goofy stuff that happens in our daily lives without saying "Stay just like that, Mommy has to go grab the camera!" Sure, they're not the greatest pictures ever taken, but they will help me remember what 'a day in the life' was like at this stage of motherhood. I mean, I won't always walk by the bathroom and see a scene like this:
...or pirate face contests at the breakfast table
...or epic swing and stroller experiences
...or strawberry shortcake whipped cream beards.
