You're so big now. Long leggies and most of the sweet little toddler belly replaced with a strong one with a little waist. Your shiny eyes looking at me, watching me, questioning me, grumping at me. You are so goofy and funny. You make me laugh everyday. You have all these ideas and directions you want to go. Sometimes it's hard to me to give up control and let you explore and make a mess. What a disservice to you. I apologize when my fuse is short and you take the brunt. Your beautiful heart quickly forgives. I can see the little wheels turning in your brain and you remember and recall things we've talked about when I wasn't even sure you were listening. You're not a baby anymore. You're a kid. I sometimes miss the times when it was just you and I. I will forever cherish those times. I love you all the time. You're my little pal. My sweet girl.
