My Big Girl!

The past two Sunday's were a two of those happy/sad monumental days when you finally realize that your little baby girl is not so little and definitely not a baby, anymore. And somewhere and somehow over these last 17 months, she has changed into this "big girl" right before your eyes!! Macie was moved up to the Blue Suede Shoes class week before last at church, which in my definition of the "big kid" class. They go from playing in the floor with toys the entire time in her old class, to singing songs about Jesus, making crafts, having a small Bible lesson, playing outside, and sitting in little chairs having snack around the table with the other kids in her new class! Where has all the time gone??!!! It was amazing to see her interacting with the other kids and following the instruction of her new teachers. You could tell she knew it was a "new class" and there was this look on her face that beamed "I'm a big girl now".....such a sweet moment! I was reminded today that I must continue to savor EVERY moment with my sweet little girl, because she is growing up SO fast!

She is too cute. You think this is hard. Just wait till she gets married - especially if she has a sister and they both get married 4 months apart from each other and then her brother moves to Central Asia 2 months later. But I'm not bitter or anything. :-) Seriously, as hard as it is to let them grow up - what a blessing to have grown children who are also your best friends. I loved every age and it just keeps getting better. love you guys
