It’s summer time again.. and in this house it means 2 of my kiddos go down to Florida to see their other side of the family. As much as they enjoy it… I hate to admit it.. I hate it. I miss them so much. Each day I live in fear that something terrible is going to happen. I have to lean more on God each day during the summer. I know he will wrap them in his arms tight and watch over them, but as a mom… I can’t help but to think of the things that could happen to them.
But for as long as I can.. I will try to withheld the yucky images and thoughts and just gaze at the photos of my 2 oldest!!
A while back, I shared pics of my son, Matty… well FINALLY I was able to get my daughter dressed and out the door for her little mini photo shoot. Since the day she was born I LOVED photographing her. Not only is she herself just AMAZING, but she has these most incredible eyes. Her dad and I think she is just flat out BEAUTIFUL!!!
This year she turned *gulp* 11 and I think we have covered every topic that we can so far with her. Dad has warned her that with the coming school year he will make drop in visits to check on her and the boy status as well as have any conversations as needed with any… boys. He has also made it clear that WHEN the time comes for any BOYS- they will have an application to fill out as well as a test. LOL.. I love it! I am pretty sure I want to her be disgusted with boys till AFTER high school. But as a mom, looking at her, I know that it will not be soon till they start creeping around. She is an amazing girl- so loving and caring. So tender and kind. I am the LUCKIEST mom in the world to have her. And I am even MORE glad that she is my ONLY girl!!
So here is a sneak peek at my beautiful daughter.
*Lilly… I am so proud of you for who you have grown up to be so far. Dad and I love you with all our hearts and soul. Looking at these photos and watching you every day, it’s hard to believe that you are 11. At times its so hard to see that little girl and I miss her, but then I see the woman *gulp* you are slowly becoming and I love you even more. You are my everything!! I miss you already and can not wait till you come back home. Lots of loves, hugs and secret whispers!!! ~ Mom & Dad*
