a new chapter

then...


my baby isn't a baby anymore.
these photos are the evidence of that. she has always felt like such a baby... especially when surrounded by kids that are so much bigger... and she still has those pudgy baby cheeks and fingers... and the big round baby belly... baby teeth... tiny toes.... she still smells just a little bit like a baby... sigh.... but she is not a baby.







now...


she is three...
and she is becoming quite independent...
and capable...
and even though i feel somewhat sentimental... i also feel excited... for her... and for me.



a few days ago i was struck by a thought... this is the first time in nine years that i have not had a child under the age of three... nine years... always a child under the age of three... (except for two weeks when layla turned three and then eislee was born, but i don't really think that counts).

i am entering a entirely new chapter in my life.

and even though i feel sentimental... i am very ready for a new chapter.



and with the five amazing people i get to share this new chapter with...
i'm pretty sure it is going to be the best one yet.




in the next couple days i will share a post focused on my little lady and her special day.

I love how in all of your posts sister I can almost hear your calm soothing sister tone of voice. :) some day you should write a book on crafts kids can so with their parents or siblings. :)
