And sat there for a whole full minute, looking like a big girl. And I happened to already have my camera so I snapped a bunch of pictures. Her head is cut off in most of them because I wasn't looking through the lens.
I was cheering and smiling and holding back tears and looking at my baby girl through my own eyes, not through a camera. Why tears? Because she looked so different. She looked so much older.
The same way Little Miss Chatterbox looks these days. I look at LMC and think, "Where did my little girl go? Who is this young lady?" And so seeing Little Miss Sunshine doing her new thing was bittersweet. It was a moment of being proud and a moment of knowing how quick this will go by and knowing that way too soon she'll be looking like a young lady too.
So I'm enjoying it now as much as I can. Isn't she cutest? I love you, my little sweetie pie.
