This little one

I’ve been back at work since August 16th, and even though I always love the energy and excitement that a new school year brings, I’ve been missing this little one. DSC_0294 DSC_0004 DSC_0358 DSC_0307

This little one who sleeps with plastic animals and dips them in her ice cream, who asks for a trip to Target on a near daily basis, who now asks her mom and dad to “go away please” so she can have some privacy when she paints, who sat patiently through her first french braid.

This little one is growing up before my eyes. The baby fat is melting away, the inches are stacking up, and the sentences are tumbling out of her mouth. And day by day, it seems, I see less of my sweet baby and more of my girl, my little person. She is such an awesome little person. I love her completely.

    such sweet pictures of your sweet little/big girl!

  2. Brought a tear to my eye! She sure is one special little girl. No longer a baby, that’s for sure.

  3. ❤ ❤ ❤ What great story.

  4. The first French braid?!?! Such a wonderful sentimental post.

    • Thanks, Carla! I can’t believe the french braid either…she’s had plenty of hair for one for awhile now, but only one of her past babysitters (who came by last week) knows how to do them! haha

  5. Hope you’re settling down fine at work. Another great and sentimental post which really resonated with me. I love the selection of pictures (as usual).

  6. Is she a lefty?

  7. So sweet, my Katy….We have several years of cuteness to witness from “this little one”. Cherish each and every little tidbit. We love her so!
