A couple of weeks ago, my daughter turned 5. We initially were going to do her birthday images outside but the cold prevented that from happening. Instead we made use of her bedroom and he princess canopy, which she calls her beauty, for beauty sleep. My girl is growing up.
I don't know that there is anything out there that is more bittersweet. My baby is growing up. I'm happy about it, excited and proud of the person she is becoming. I marvel in the new things she can do. She tells me that she can't wait to grow up. I look at her, amazed and think... but no, just stay like this for a little while longer. Just stay little for a little while longer. I'm not ready for you to be grown just yet.
I know that nothing good lasts forever.
There she is, with stardust in her eyes...
