little girl, big world

October 10, 2014

Better late than never... her kindergarten portraits.
Somehow, two years have passed since her big sister's shoot.
New home, new school, but the same level of excitement from a 5-year-old ready to take on the world...
She's so proud to call these grounds hers (the hands in the air, this-all-belongs-to-me-now pose? all her doing).
And I'm so proud to call this girl mine.

bye bye baby, baby goodbye

But by 6am, she was excited enough for the both of us...

Yes, I ugly-cried. Intermittently, for 4 hours.
But then...

Not only did she come back to me (still smiling!)...
But she came back with a flower that she'd picked for me at recess.

She'd thought about me. 
Even if only for a teeeeeny tiny fraction of the time that I'd thought about her.
It was enough. ♥

How is it that the older they get, the faster they fly?
Soaking up every last minute...
