In a little over 2 weeks, my daughter will turn 1. Yikes.
Where has the time gone? Who has determined that my sweet little 5 lb 10 oz creation is allowed to grow up and be a big girl? This person has NOT consulted me.
Tonight, I looked back at pictures from Jason and I's life together. I watched Andrew and Jacob blossom before my eyes. Same with Olivia. It's scary.
I know that we bring children in this world to teach them about Jesus and then trust HIM that we are making the right decisions for their lives. We raise them and release them into HIS care.
But that doesn't make it easier. It doesn't help to look back and see Jacob as a sweet 12 year old that I have watched grow up before me. Or Andrew grow from a sweet 2nd grader to a very "mature" 5th grader. They make me smile every day.
And now, their sister has also made me smile. Every day. She now says mama and dada to the right people. She says her bubbas names. They love it.
Guess I'd better get back to planning her birthday party. **GULP** Guess it's coming whether I like it or not.
