Are You Ready for This?

She sat up today. By herself.
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.


  1. What a cute little outfit! I cannot believe her. Soon she will be walking and talking! Holy cow! That third picture she looks like Ben and Malia mixed together somehow. And her look is like, Mom, what's the big deal?? lol
    Oh, thanks for posting these. Such a sweetheart.

  2. What a beauty she is, just like her mommy! Brings tears to my eyes remembering you at that age. How fast time goes.
