thanks to day light savings, it’s now dark when i wake caroline up for school in the morning. the sun was just beginning to peek over the horizon this morning when i began to hear the birds chirping so sweet & loud. when she was a little baby girl & i’d hear the birds chirping, i would always say “the birdies are singing happy birthday to you”. i honestly think the week of her birthday their song is maybe a tad more sweet than any other week, as if to announce “it’s spring, it’s spring!!!”
so my littlest one, born on the first day of spring is turning 12. and as cliche as it is, it’s so hard to believe my sweet baby girl is really no longer a baby girl.
12 is just on the fence, trying to climb up & over in to the teenager yard. but yet still looks like a little girl in untied converse. it’s middle school & sometimes mean girls. it’s first bras & lip gloss. it’s ipods & youtube. it’s innocent & fresh. it’s funny & sometimes a little awkward. it’s deciding what to do with your talents & having “the” talk. it’s still snuggly & giggly. & it’s still moldable.
