How? When?

How is it that when I think of her, I see this:


But when I actually look at her, I see this?

When did she get so big?

This weekend, she turns 7. I will be the mother of a seven-year-old!

Where did the time go?

More importantly, how do I slow it down?

I KNOW! Someone just asked me if I don't sometimes wish I had a pause button on my kids...I think you could use one, too? Heck, all moms could.

Happy birthday 7th sweetie girl.

I feel the same way.

Kudos on editing your entire blog. I've toyed with the idea but haven't committed yet.

She is certainly sprouting, eh?

She is so pretty, Marge ;) Great shot.

My eldest will be 7 in about a month. How is it that he is 7 years old and I still feel...like 23. Sigh. Kids growing up is this weird thing where it is so awesome and so heartbreaking all at the same time.

She's BEAUTIFUL!! :) Happy 7th b-day!!!! I guess we slow it down by cherishing every moment and taking nothing for granted (hard to do but the only way...?)
