My big girl....

My baby girl went peepee on the potty earlier.  She is getting so big.  It's so bittersweet.  I know she has to grow up, but why does she have to do it so fast???  She will start preschool on Tuesday.  It's just 2 mornings a week and it's very exciting, but just another step with her growing up.  I was packing up some of her clothes that she has outgrown (just in case we have another baby in a few years and it's a girl) and I was B-A-W-L-I-N-G!  It was awful. 

I'm sure all parents feel the same about the kiddos growing up.  I never expected it to be so emotional.  All her clothes make her look like a toddler now instead of a baby.  She drinks easily from cups with straws now and makes sentences.  She can sing "Jesus Loves Me" and do some hand motions, too.  She knows her colors, animals, and body parts.  She'll be 2 in October....2! *sniff, sniff*

To my Leah girl -- you are the biggest blessing EVER.  I am so proud to be your mommy and can't imagine life without you.  You make me smile and laugh and question my sanity all in the same breath.  You are the apple of my eye and I love you so very much! I am very proud of my girl!
