Walking--It's a Tricky Thing


Looking at these pictures makes me want to scream...."Who said you could be a big girl!?!" This morning she was just a baby girl, and, somehow, before lunch time, she turned into this big girl. How did that happen?? Holy guacamole! I don't see a baby at all. I feel like I've been struck by lightning.

Despite my meltdown, walking is a huge accomplishment for Olivia. Doesn't she look proud of herself! I'm proud of her. But my heart still aches. Is that what being a parent is all about? Having your heart soar and ache at the same time??
That's a quality your heart
acquires with your first child,
I guess. Talk about a double-edged sword!

Sincerely,

Leigh
