Today is my younger daughters SEVENTH birthday. It doesn't seem possible, and it hurts almost as much as it pleases me to see how she is growing up. It's tough not being needed to make sandwich's, or tie shoes. Luckily, my wife and I are 'touchers' so, the kids are that way too...no shortage of hugs, and I still get to read her stories every-other night, which is a treasure, as much as I may huff about it when bed time happens during the 4th quarter of a football game.
I like this recent picture the best. Her glasses are cute, but the photographer wanted to a few 'glare free' shots. This is her 'oh yeah? Watch this' look, and it yes, it usually means trouble.
