I was lifting her into her crib, teaching her to write her first name, making sure she wouldn't fall off the playground equipment, buckling her in the car seat, she cheered me on during my BIG day (college graduation), working on her back roll and so many other wonderful memories...
Now today, she is jumping up on her big girl bed, writing her full name (first, middle and last), can recite our address and phone number by heart, plays on the playground while Jake and I sit idly to the side enjoying watching her climb and have fun not worried at all if she will fall, buckling herself in the car, about to graduate from Pre-K at her school, can do (3) back walkovers and working on her back hand spring, a plethora of random amazing things come out of her mouth every single day, and just when I don't think I could love her more she says things like... "Mommy, you rock!" She has blossomed into a beautiful little girl who although at times is a little stinker, she is my little stinker and she is a blessing to be around.
Yesterday we converted her to her "BIG GIRL BED", my small short little munchkin had out grown the current conversion of a day bed and it was time to convert. Laci helped us choose her bedding and we went with a beautiful purple which complemented her room decorations perfectly.
Here is my soon to be 5 year old, getting bigger every day, making me more and more proud and becoming so independent.
