I was thinking about how fast this time has gone and how I wish I could just stop it for a while and savor it. Savor the moments with her when she is still young enough to be under my roof, sitting on my lap, or sneaking away to "play" with the door closed. I know that these moments are fleeting and will be gone very soon. Somehow, knowing this doesn't make it any easier to swallow. I have to admit watching her grow up is so hard for this momma. She will always be my baby girl.
Happy 12th Birthday Em!! You are my first born. The little one who first made me a mother and caused me to fall in love with this job. I always tell you that being your mom is the greatest job I have and that is so true. I love you with all my heart dear one.
