Just the other morning, Audrey crawled up onto my lap as I was at my desk doing a little work. She sat there, as she has since she was a baby, only this time, I could barely see over her head.
My baby is no longer a baby.
This little lady has been my sidekick from the beginning. That’s what happens, I suppose, when you’re born number 4 in a busy family. All three of my boys are perfectly content playing on their own; not so much Audrey. She craves relationship. On her days home from school, she is rarely far from my side – splitting her time between singing and dancing on the cleared-off coffee table, or chatting my ear off. She’s a 5 year old ball of joy, imagination, emotion, grace and stubbornness.
Time flies. This parenting thing is just cruising by and I can hardly believe how quickly my baby has gone from teensy romper-wearer to princess-jammie girl.
Many of you have been reading from the beginning – when my Audrey girl was brand new. Can you believe how big she’s gotten?! Thank you for sticking around and being so kind to me all these years. I just love doing this blog/business and without you it would be nothing! xoxo
