My sweet darling Sophie turned five this week. I don’t know how it happened. I’ve tried so hard to make myself believe that she isn’t getting older and she will always stay little. I’m thrilled to see her growing into an intelligent and healthy little girl, but there are just so many changes a Mom can handle at one time. Suddenly she doesn’t want to watch Blues Clues, or Dora, or even Princess movies. We have to watch Hannah Montana and Wizards of Waverly Place. How did that happen? And fancy dresses have been pushed aside for short skirts with leggins and sparkles of any and all shapes and sizes. I love my daughter with all my heart, but I can’t help but miss my baby. I know this is what all parents have to go through, but gosh, it went by so fast. I mean we start kindergarten in the fall! I am definitely not ready for kindergarten. But Sophie is, so onward we go. I’m not happy about how quickly time is passing, but it does make me extra thankful for all the sweet family memories we’ve made. And I’m certainly looking forward to making many, many more. I can’t wait to see what’s next. Happy Birthday Sophie!
