Nola's 3, 23 Questions

If I think really hard about how my last child (as we know it, and we do believe in miracles, because we do have Nola... but as far has our human control goes she's our last) keeps crossing these milestones. Although, I am happy to know that my baby making days are over, I still watch the baby years float away.  I allow myself to feel that sadness.  When I nursed her for the last time, when we unexpectedly had to change her crib into a toddler bed, when she started crawling, walking, running.  Her hair growing long and looking like a young lady. As I've witnessed her fall madly in love with her first Disney movie (Frozen, duh!). I see her future self.  Spicy yet sweet.  That girl is a pistol, for real! Sometimes, I wonder how fast will these years go by???  (And yet, some days are so slow)

She's three, a real live sentence spouting human being. Always singing, and asking a million questions.  We love her so much...

Thank you, Nola, for helping me be brave.  Thank you for reminding me every day that I have to be proud of myself, so that you will be proud of yourself.  Thank you for always telling me that you love me.  My biggest prayer for you is that you would believe always that you are beautiful inside and out. Doubt will creep in and cause you to feel ugly, and we can't be falling for the lies. You are smarter than all the boys... and make them work real, real, hard to meet your standards.  I'll tell you anything you need to know, when you are old enough to figure it out and ask the question. :)
