There Goes My Baby ...

... Here Comes My Gal

She's just turned two and a half, but she's also become a little girl. I don't know when the metamorphosis from baby to girl occurred exactly, but I've become aware of a change in her over the last week or two.

Suddenly, she's taller, and that baby tummy has all but disappeared.



Her verbal skills are growing although she has never had any trouble in letting me know exactly what is expected of me ... like helping her spin on the playground spinner thingie ...



... or letting me know that it's time for another push.



While I'm not claiming that she's really able to do Sudoku's yet, she sure tries to help.



She knows that I have trouble keeping a steady rhythm and does her best to keep me on track.



I have to admit that I miss the baby a little bit. I mean, transitions can be difficult.

But I do love my little girl.

What a loving post to a very special little girl.

But don't worry, she will always be your baby too.

I can tell how much you love her. It is sad how quickly babyhood passes. Cherish every second of her, AC. She's a little doll.

Oh Ac you are so spoiled aren't you?!
You two will continue to grow close, she will even tell you things that she doesn't tell anyone else. You've already bonded with her so you've got it going on!
Love Di

Awww... moving from one fun stage to an even better one. :)

I can't decide who's luckier, you or her. :)

You don't notice something's gone until it has happened; it's unfair. We should be given time to savour the last days of baby and toddler before little girl arrives, we should have notice of these changes. But, no, all of a sudden, here is little girl. And so beautiful.

A time will come when she will be telling her grandchildren what a wonderful Grampa she had. You will still be earning praise and admiration.
