could she really be 7 now?

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

How is this possible?  7 years!  We are celebrating a birthday over here tomorrow.  My freckle-faced kid keeps growing up...and I am trying very hard to like it.  I look at both of these pictures and I am just amazed.  I'm in awe of God for entrusting such a person to me.  She will always be my first little one.  I can remember holding her in those first few hours and being scared to death.  What if I screw this all up?!  I embrace her now and have the same thought.  Only now she's this opinionated, articulate, creative, spirited-kid.  And I feel even less "in-control."  With all that in mind, God knows I need her.

Sorry for all the sappiness.  I think it's impossible to avoid considering the circumstances.

yippee, you're back! I can't believe how much that baby picture looks like her now--she has the same facial expression! It makes me wonder how similar Contessa will look in 7 years. Even though you're just a stone's throw away, I feel like I hardly ever see you. We need to get together soon!

I love keeping up with your family through your blog. I have checked back periodically and thought you had given up blogging completely, so I was pleasantly surprised to find some new posts today. I hope you are all doing well. I can not believe how big your girls are. I love all the pictures!~Rebecca
