My Little Girl

It happened this morning. Allie and I were having a "discussion" as to wether or not the tiny little brown dot on her finger was a freckle or a boo boo. It went something like this:
Allie: Mommy Boo Boo
Me: No Allie, that is just a freckle
Allie: No. No tetle, boo boo.
Me: I think it is just a freckle Alliebug.
Allie: No Mommy. Not tetle, boo boo.
Me: Ok Allie.
And that is when it hit me. I have known for a while now that she is not a baby baby. But I think I have finally fully realized that she is my little girl now. She actually converses with me. Yesterday morning she woke up and said, "Mommy, watch TV. Where's the remote?" I thought it was so cute and couldn't wait to tell Michael. Now, it kind of makes me sad. I am not ready for her to be my little girl yet. Not just yet, because she will never be my baby baby again. I wish I could just freeze time and soak in every waking moment because I realize now more than ever that the time that you have to raise your children flies by so fast. I am banking all of these precious moments in my memory baby so that in about ten years when she is driving me crazy and making me want to pull my hair out, I will remember that she will always be that little girl that thought Mommy ruled the world!!

That made me cry! I keep hearing things that remind me to take in every second that I have with Ava and that is exactly what I am doing! I love her so much and I know that before long we will also be having coversations about boogers and other fun things! Love you!

Time does fly by. I was thinking the same thing in church the other day when I heard you and Allie 'talking' about something. It was so precious.
