I was on Facebook yesterday and I saw this picture of Mia without any teeth almost a year ago. It made me realize how much she has changed and how fast this is all going. She is such a little girl now, not a baby. She has chores and sits and reads to herself. I have realized that, like my mom, I like something about every stage. I am not looking at her pictures wishing she was still a baby, but I am realizing how quickly the days go by even though they feel never ending sometimes. She is a bright, beautiful, ambitious little girl. I am so lucky to be her mom. Now I want her to wake up from her nap so I can give her a good squeeze and she can push me away then give me kiss on my cheek(her new favorite form of affection).
