“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. I'll always be with you.”
~A.A. Milne, from "Winnie the Pooh"

Sometimes as a parent, we don't notice how much our babies are growing up.
Being Liddy's mama, it's often even harder for me to notice how she's growing since she remains so very tiny......
However, over the last few weeks, I have realized that that chubby baby face I love so much is changing. Fading away is the face of an infant and in its place is the emerging face of a little girl...
I took a picture today that truly reinforced this in my mind and so, I would like to share with you the evolution I have watched happening over the last several months.

4 months old.

5 months old.

7 months old. Fresh out of OHS.

8 months old.

Today. 10 months old. And oh, so grown up.

 has been replaced by this....

and I just don't know when exactly it happened.

Way to grow, baby girl. Way to grow. :)

P.S. Please don't forget to pray for Iris.


  1. I know what you mean! I look back at the pictures of Elizabeth when she was born to now and I in awe in the changes in her! Does not look like the same baby when she was born that is for sure!

  3. I think I blinked...and then sometimes it feels like I closed my eyes and forgot to open them...it is funny..I read this thing one time that said days can take forever and years go by fast...so true!! great pix and reflection! happy holidays...smiles

  4. I saw your sweet little one on the thanksgiving post - she is ADORABLE! I loved your quote so much about her being your salvation and I just had to "meet" you. I also was wondering if it would be ok to link to your blog from my sons? I have a feeling it will become a favorite :)

  5. absolutely! Link away! :)
    And thank you! We think she is pretty darn adorable! :)
