So Big

"So Big." Its a game we play with little man. We help him stand up, then stretch his arms to the sky and say, "so big."

My last post was about Big Girl's birthday, but as I sit and humbly thank God for her, I thought it was time to reflet (again in more detail) on her wonderful life.

As I write this, she is down at the beach. Not with me, or with her Dad, but with her big cousins and their friends. What sweet girls. They all (including Bug Girl) took their towels and books (she is reading Heidi y'all), lathered up with sunscreen and shades and went out to enjoy the day.

Towels, shades, book. Six. Maybe I am thinking about it too much here, but six. Six.

Husband said a few times on her birthday that she is a third of the way to 18. I can hardly believe it. It seems like she was just a little thing.

Perfectly content to have Mommy by her side all day long. Whatever I said was cool was cool. Now she has her own ideas. Her own understanding of cool.

I hope. I pray that cool continues to include dad and I. She is such a blessing in our lives. No matter how big, how sassy, how too cool she gets, we will always love her.
