And really...what more is there to say?

She's six. Gone are the days of picking her up and carrying her around, of helping her put on her shoes, of deciding what clothes she will wear. It's all the little things I her little arms reaching up and tugging on my skirt, sitting her up on the kitchen bench while we bake, snuggling together watching a movie after lunch.

While I love to watch her grow, it breaks my heart that my "little girl" is gone forever :(
So...I pulled out her scrapbooks to torture myself just a little more...

...and couldn't resist showing you this layout (circa 2005)...when tearing paper was big, shaped brads were popular, and those MM metal alphabets were the must-have embellishment! Look at those chubby little arms and that gorgeous smile...sob sob...and now she's six...sob sob.
