she is growing up...

 Baby Saren is growing up.  It's such a cliche, but my little girl growing up is amazing and fun and heartbreaking and tragic all at the same time.

She used to be so tiny, with (it's hard to believe) just a little bit of beautiful black hair.


This week Saren had her first REAL haircut so we could brush through her beautiful  hair with a few less tears.


 She used to look up at me with those wide baby eyes full of wonder...


Now, she stares me down menacingly over the barrel of her shotgun.  This may be my favorite picture EVER.

 We used to need duct tape to keep Saren's diapers on  her little body...


Now, we are done using duct tape, and Saren is done with diapers.


I love my little, sweet daughter.  If anyone knows how to stop time or even slow it down, let me know.

Yup-treasure these precious times with your little ones. Life really does fly by. I remember so well how precious each of my children were (and are); it is an awesome blessing to be a parent. It's also crazy hard and extremely hectic. You probably would welcome a little peace and quiet to go along with the chaos at least once in a while.
Saren is soooo adorable. Love you all!
