Was this the little girl I carried?

Or, the little girl Dennis rocked?

All of you young mothers hear us older moms talk about how time flies with your babies. We caution you not to "wish away" each phase of their little lives. Here is why. That picture above? Taken in 1997. I know. That seems like a long, long time ago. Well, what about this one:
This cute little girl in her new bed? Taken just four years ago. Yes, 2006.
Oh, and the one below, with her friend Sheradyn? Are you ready? This one was taken only THREE years ago!
I don't know if you ready for the next two pictures. Go back and look at Katie and Sheradyn again. Remember, that one was THREE years ago. Actually, not quite three. It will be three in July, I think.
Thursday was the last day of school for Katie. She went home with her friend Bri. Sheradyn went along also. She stayed for two days. We finally got her back this afternoon. She grew up while she was gone, people! If you don't believe me, take a look below. And, remember, these were taken less than THREE years after the one of her and Sheradyn at Silver Dollar City!
End of 6th grade fun with Sheradyn and Bri.
HERE is the little girl I carried! Sniff, sniff.

Oh.my. That makes me sad. I hope Olivia doesn't grow up that fast. :(

Wow. Thanks for a different perspective. I find myself in the "wishing away" phase sometimes. I REALLY don't want her to grow up, I just say I do!
