Allison (to her sister): “I just sent you a text. Did you get it? You didn’t? Well, I’m not resending it. I need to snap some photos with my phones camera. Maybe I can get a Facebook to put them on.”
It was just a little reminder that she’s not a baby anymore. She’s already well on her way to eye rolling, gum snapping, and being glued to electronics like there’s no tomorrow preteen hood. My baby is definitely not a baby anymore.
As I was rounding up some photos to have printed off, I got lost in looking at all of the pictures we’ve taken of her over the years. Here are a few of my favorites. Pretty soon we’ll be trading in plastic dress up shoes for high heels, toy Chevy's for a real car, and boys will be bringing her flowers so she doesn’t have to pick her own. Someday I may think to myself “Boy, I’m glad those younger years are over” but for now, I’m going to enjoy every minute of it.
