I will never cease to be amazed at how fast life flies by, especially when you measure it by the growth of children....
Macie is now eating cereal and applesauce (and I really think she would eat anything that comes near her mouth). I knew she was getting old when I started noticing all the teeny-tiny babies that I would see out and about and she was double (okay- maybe triple) their size. She can kind of sit up and it is only a matter of time before she is crawling around. And I think I saw her two bottom teeth today! Where did my baby go?
And Ronsi, well, she started using the word "usually". I am not sure if that is normal 4 year old talk, but then again I would probably never classify Ronsi as "normal". But she is very grown up these days. As you can see above, she likes to cook and she likes to talk (a lot). She can write her name. She told someone today that her name was not ronsi it was Isabelle. She wants to play the piano like Lisa someday and she asks me to play the song "Every Move I Make" every time we are in the car. I don't know how to explain it. She is just big.
Tori is holding a picture of a gift for Sam. That was the picture I took of her just before she headed off to her first birthday party of a school friend (who happened to be a boy). She had the time of her life she said. She wanted to go back over there everyday. To my knowledge the party was all on the up and up- no spin the bottle or anything like that. But I don't even know what happens during part of her day. She doesn't always want to talk about it. I have to wait for parent-teacher conferences to get a better glimpse of this other world she disappears to from 8 to 11.
So, in this girl's world I am amazed once again at how quickly my little girls are growing up on me. I figured that was another reason to journal. So maybe when they are long gone from my house I can read my journals and maybe magically transport myself (even if just for a moment) back to when they were little.
Ummmmmm....and just in case anyone is thinking anything. I AM NOT interested in having another baby. I am reflective, not delusional. =)
