Holding on to four

Do you have a four year old daughter? Or maybe you have had one so you know what I mean. They are scrumptious. They are not too big and also not too small, the perfect age. My four year old is starting to outgrow four...and it hurts. She has her first loose tooth and I am considering taping it inside her mouth. A mature look comes with loosing teeth and I am not quite ready for it. She is about a month away from five and I really wish she wasn't. Assuming we will not be witnesses to God miraculously intervening into our circumstance, there will be no more babies in our household, which means there are no more little girls growing up that will one day be four. It should be a crime.

What a sweet picture - she is beautiful. I feel the same way about them growing up. I tell them all the time to "knock it off." :)

Hold on tight to this last month. My baby girl is about three months away from seven. Oh how I long for a nap with her, just to feel her breathing on my chest, like when she was a baby. I to am finished with babies, unless God delivers one to the front door. I would love all the chaos and peace a new baby would bring, but it is in His hands. I hope you and your family have a Happy New Year

My daughter just turned four and I know EXACTLY how you feel. I looked at her long slim neck and sweet face the other day and those long legs running through the house and thought, "Where did my baby go?!?" It is so sad and so exciting too. I wish I could just put her in a box and keep her like she is right now forever! I would give anything to have another child, but we are just not lucky in the fertility department. I thank God above everyday for the precious gift of our daughter and am so blessed to have this special miracle in my life! Babies...why do they grow up on us????
