Slide




Don't you just love watching them figure out something all on their own. This may not be the way I would have slid down the slide, but if you could have seen how excited she was to figure it out alone, you would be laughing out loud. She is just getting so old all of the sudden. I remember thinking that she would never, ever sleep through the night and then at 14 months she finally did. I also thought that she wouldn't ever get the walking thing and then at 16 months she started and she hasn't ever stopped! I know that we can't stop time but sometimes I find myself honestly hoping it would just slow down a little. This is the first time that I am not wanting the next step...we are fine right here! Maybe it's because our family is complete or that potty-training is next, but whatever the reason I am so grateful for today!

I love her little jeans! She is just too cute Angie. I love moments like these. I hope they stay forever imprinted in our hearts. Watching them grow up in such a wonderful thing....and sad too. Being a mom is the best:)

When I looked at that first picture, I thought, "WOW, she is such a big girl!" Then that's what your post was about. And what a BEAUTIFUL big girl she is...just radiant!
