my little bird

For me, one of the best parts of being a mom is watching my children grow up.

First words, first steps, first laughs, smiles, friends.

I have amazing parents who taught me by example the concept of roots and wings. So that's what I'm trying to do - grow roots.

 I love watering Sophie's passions - music. play. art. running. thinking. imagination.

I love listening to hear read, a level of surprise in her voice that she's actually doing it!

Having deep conversations about life and death

and her saying, "Oh, so it's a life cycle!" without fear.

My girl. Next year is first grade. And while I water those roots, I watch those wings start to grow.

I may cry, but I am not sad. I am so, so proud of the person she is.
