This is my baby, can you believe it? It saddens me as only another mother would understand as she reaches each new phase of maturity, as much as it makes me proud and excited. Next month my daughter will graduate from VPK (pre kindergarten) and in August she will be in kindergarten. When I see these pictures I can’t believe how my precious bundle that I brought home from the hospital just 5 short years ago grew up before my very eyes. My daughter is mature, smart, and a little sassy. She is beautiful and full of love and joy. Her small smile here is testament to her ever changing ways. If I show you even one older school photo you will know what I mean. In the past she has refused to smile. This year she decided she would, it is not the beautiful “Shibley Smile” that she has but it is beautiful none the less!
