1st Day of School!

How has time gone by so fast? It seems as if it were only yesterday that Lexi was hair on a little body. She is growing up to be such a great little lady, we are so proud of her. I sometimes miss the silly little girl that she was, she often used words that were beyond her age and size. I wish that I had slowed down more to appreciate it all in the moment. She is now closing in on 10 years old and I couldn't feel more blessed than to have her as my daughter. She and I rode a few crazy waves together, sometimes I think she held me up better at times than I held her. I have grown as a person and a mother being in her charge. I love who she is and the potential I see in her, I don't take credit for Alexis because I think she was born Alexis and there wasn't much that needed assistance, I mean the girl potty trained her self before she was two. She is what you might say "An old soul", she is a wonderful big sister and Jimmy and I love being her parents!
This picture is from Lexi's first day of pre-school (she was not even 3 yet)!

It seems that as we get older the years go by alot quicker! Only if we could hit the pause button every now and then to enjoy or children a little more!

She is beautiful. I can't believe she potty trained herself so young! Amazing.
