It Suddenly Occurred To Me



Little One is not a baby anymore.

She walks runs.

She eats on her own.

She drinks from a sippy cup.

She talks. Okay, she babbles in a language only she understands.

Most of all, she's got so much character and a personality of her own.

She makes a scrunchy happy face and laughs when she thinks something is funny.

She puts her finger to her lips and says, "Shhhh!"

She is fiercely independent.

She's a bit stubborn (like her Mom).

She learns new things every day and is proud and excited to show everyone what she can do.

Yep. She's definitely no longer a baby.
This is where I start bawling my eyes out. How on earth did she grow up so fast?

Enjoy every second C. The time goes by faster and faster the older they get. Each age is a joy unto itself.

Peace!

Hey! I have been thinking of you!!! Yes, you are right. :) How are you doing, btw? Hope you are enjoying the summer!

CC:
Ha! You're right! You do have a 9 yr old going on 20! :) BTW, I haven't had a chance to get some more of the items for your care package. It's been crazy and the play starts up again this weekend and next week we have four performances. We'll be done for the summer after that. THEN I'll be able to send all that stuff to you :) XOOXXOXO

Jane:
It certainly is. I know I'm supposed to be happy, but it is hard at the same time! I sometimes wish I could freeze time and keep her a sweet, innocent, happy baby! :)

AMB:
