This sweet little baby is going to turn in to a teenager tomorrow. Yep- 13th birthday quickly approaching. I know I can't stop it. In fact, it is already too late, she has been acting like a teenager for years. Still, it is really hard not to see this image when I look at her, even though she is growing into a fine young woman. Who would have thought that she could be more beautiful? that she could be more special? Or more treasured?
Well, my dear, sweet girl. You are. I am so proud of you! And, all the joking aside, I look forward to the years ahead that will be spent growing into the beautiful, strong, intelligent, talented woman that I know you are going to be.
