My little blue-eyed baby is 10 years old today. That just doesn't seem right, and yet, at the same time, it seems much longer than that.
It is difficult to put into words all the things I feel about our first born girl.
Her face shows bits of me. Her stature and mannerisms reveal bits of her Aunts. Being nearly as tall as me, I can almost look this smart, thoughtful, caring and (mostly) patient girl in the eye these days.
Asking a lot of questions about “grown up things,” yet still believing in the Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus. She is a "tween" if there ever was one.
She still has the patience to play with her brother and sister, yet, I see her wanting to spend a bit more time to herself.
In three more years, she’ll be an official teenager; in eight more, she’ll be on her way into the world. Every day this special person grows away from us a little more; a fact that is easy to forget in the day-to-day of raising her, but is a hard reality on milestone birthdays such as this.
As I said, it is difficult for me to put all these emotions and thoughts and memories into words… I remember the little sweet baby she was. I’m proud of who she is, and I can’t wait to see who she will be. (well, maybe I can wait on that…)
I never knew there lived inside of me a fierce Momma lioness until Punkin was born. We love her fiercely. Our Punkin girl with the twinkling laughter in those blue eyes.
Thank you God for this girl. I hope we're doing ok with her.
