Where...

did the time go?

In 4 months and 7 days,
this little girl...












will be donning cap and gown
and graduating high school.


I miss that little girl
but I love
the young woman she is becoming.
My heart swells with pride
while a piece of it breaks
of days quickly passing by.

My baby, you'll always be.

What a beautiful baby! It is so fun to see her when she was little because I've only known her as a teen! ;) She's still a lovely, lovely girl. Why does time have to go so fast????

Where does it all go? Seriously. My greatest fear is that it will all pass me by and I won't notice. That's when you know you're getting older:) Beautiful sentiments. Congrats!

She is adorable as can be, I bet she is gorgeous as a young lady.
I always tell young parents to enjoy every moment, because they go so fast.
Some days I would give anything to have just one more day with those younger days.
I will admit it is wonderful to have an adult daughter...

Blessed Serendipity said...

They do grow up and will sprout wings one day. How proud you must be of your children.

Janie said...

Gotta love Oscar! What a great opportunity to take the photos of him that you posted here. Lucky girl. Nice.

And the idea of you posting your girl from babyhood to becoming a young woman. Time escapes me too Jill. Nice to see your blog and I am still catching up, if that is ever possible!
