Friends and lots of paint
Silly, silly girl
Erin and Saylor
Our precious birthday girl
Today, I had a moment. We went to church knowing Saylor would now be in the four year old class, but when I got to the door and saw that the sign read "4 and 5 YEAR OLDS", I had to take a second. My baby is a baby....and five year olds are BIG. How can they be together?! Eeek! So as I took a few deep breaths and composed myself, she was already in the door, and then I had to beg for a hug. I am so very proud of her for being such a big girl, but my heart is breaking just a little. She told me after church that her new class was fun and she didn't know anyone, but she met new friends. Wasn't it just yesterday that she cried every time I dropped her off at church? Wasn't it just yesterday I couldn't wait until she could walk and talk, and now she DOES. NOT. STOP. It just really hit me today how big and independent my girl is now.
Saylor Grace, I don't even have the words to describe how thankful we are for you! We love every bit of you and are beyond proud of the kind, smart, hilarious, confident, beautiful little lady that you are. Thank you for making our lives brighter with your laugh, your smile, your dance moves, your words, your cuddles, your hugs, and your kisses.
I promise....this was just yesterday!
