One day she’s all tiny and dependent….the next, she’s wearing these big girl dresses and running and climbing and playing outside! I feel a teensy bit of sadness, but mostly, I am just basking in it! Every day she’s one step closer to being the woman she will become and I feel so priveleged to be able to have front row seats for that show. She amazes me with her balance between tomboy and girly-girl (note the tube of lipgloss in her hand). She’s vivacious and aggressive, but so gentle, tender and sweet. She’s a spitfire when she needs to be and an angel the rest of the time. That spunkiness will be a great thing, I think. Not so much as a toddler (a little rough on Mom and Dad) but as a teen and a woman, this girl will hold her own for sure. Nobody will ever hold her back. She’s tough! She’s sweet! And she’s really very precious.
