We're Rapidly Approaching Two... Years!

Oh, wow... Just, wow.
How is it possible?

Brynn turned 23 months-old on Saturday... Which means we'll have a 2 year-old running around our house before we know it! Since her 1st birthday, I have wondered when I'm going to stop announcing her age in "months"...  And it seems that time is coming soon!

Each day, we wake up, and I'm reminded that I'm a mommy of a little girl now... Every day, I'm watching her grow a little more and learn a million new things about LIFE. It has been so incredible!

 What a blessing it has been to watch my little lady become who she is.
Yes, we have been told many times that she is a lot like her momma (which comes with a Super-Sized Independence and a side of Hardheadedness)... But I wouldn't change a thing about her! I'm so thrilled to be able to encourage her to love the kindhearted, adventurous, fearless, and happy little girl that she is becoming, as much as her mommy and daddy do!

Oh, that little girl who immediately starts to dance when she hears music... Who gives the best hugs that I could ever imagine, even when we've butted heads all day long! That little girl who tells me of every "hurt" that she experiences, and displays it for its *kiss* cure-all... and who is constantly finding herself "stuck" in some form or another. ;)

She is my whole heart. I am so proud to be the mommy of that little girl.

I wanted to share something that I read the other day, which I feel perfectly describes what being a parent is all about.

"IT'S THE GOOD DAYS THAT AREN'T PERFECT. IT'S GOOD THAT PARENTING IS HARD. 
BECAUSE IT MAKES IT EVEN MORE IMPORTANT-- THIS PRIVILEGE OF RAISING LITTLE HUMAN BEINGS, 
OF FIERCELY LOVING THEM, OF LEARNING MORE EVERY DAY 
HOW TO TEACH KINDNESS, RESPECT, AND RESPONSIBILITY." 
- Kelle Hampton from Enjoying the Small Things

What a privilege it is to be Brynn's mommy.

Here is a look back at our little girl's life... And all of the blessings that she has brought with her.

time really does fly so fast but the good thing is that you absolutely have fun along the way. They really have the ability to fill you with joy and laughter. By little girl will be 3 in February and getting bigger every day. It is amazing how much they change in a matter of months.
I am following you now and I love the pictures on your blog.
Hope you can follow back.
