I remember the second she was born knowing that all was right in this world.  How could anyone be more perfect? How could anyone question the existence of God when something this amazing can happen?  She was/is a miracle (and so is her sister) from the start.  I can vividly remember the second she came out of Mere's stomach, so how is it that she is done with first grade? If my memory is so clear, then how could so much time have passed?

At the end of first grade I find myself with a little girl who is rapidly maturing into what will one day be a unique, loving, smart, beautiful woman.  She is reading chapter books ALL BY HERSELF and moving through them at the speed of light.  She has strong legs from riding and strong arms from swimming.  She loves her sister.   She is her own mix of girlie girl and tomboy, spending hours playing dinosaurs while wearing her pink dress up outfit.    She is patient, insightful, thoughtful, sensitive, and loving.  I can't believe we have a second grader.  The time is flying......I just want to soak up as much of it as I can.

Wanna know what is even crazier?  Layne starts the two and a half class in the fall........

It's funny how you hear the old saying..."time flies" and you dismiss it, oh old people talkin', and are the old people saying, where the hell did the time go ?!
She sounds like the most well rounded child out there. Way to go moms

Ok lady. I depend on you to feed me information because your wife has refused.
What's going on in baby news ?
I'm sending this message with high hopes that things are good.
