pretty little lily

Dear Lily,

You are my pretty, little Lily. I know how much you try to do it all yourself, trying to be like your big brother. But could you please try to slow down and not grow-up so fast? Let me love you while you're little. Let me snuggle with you a little longer while you're small. Let me hold your hand while we walk together before you run off to show me how fast you are. I love you to the moon and back and always will. Happy Birthday.

I think I'll keep you forever.

love,
mommy

Wow! They sure do grow up fast. I always tell mine to stop growing up. It just isn't fair.

Rachel,
I was so excited to hear from you. Your blog is great and your kids are absolutely adorable. I can relate to the post about Lily. Carson is turning three next week and as exciting as it is, it is a little sad. He's turning into such a little boy and shedding all his "babyness" It really does go so fast!
