Your summer of three has been so much fun. You have really grown into a fun, loving, shrieking, little girl. So different than last summer. No stroller, no diapers, and the other day we realized that you were too big for your tricycle and ready for a big girl bike (but that’s another story!) You are so cute when you try to keep up with the “big” kids and desperately want to fit in and do everything that they are doing.
As much as you want to be a big girl, you informed me the other day that you were NOT going to go to preschool because you were still a baby and not old enough to go. I’m pretty sure you will change your mind! Maybe you are reading MY thoughts, because I’m positive that exact statement ran through my mind a couple hundred times in the past month. I honestly can’t believe that I’m sending you to preschool in a few weeks! I know you are ready but I’m not so sure I am…
This summer has flown by! I wish we could just freeze time right now and stay in these lazy summer evenings forever. I look at these images, and I can actually HEAR you giggling as you run through the sprinklers.
I hope that you never lose your spunk and determination because you are FULL of both! (although the rest of us agree we could do with a tiny bit less shrieking and incessant talking. Both of those traits are wearing us all a little thin…ok?)
I love you to pieces little girl!
As a mother and a photographer I am lucky to have found other women who share my passion. Their images and words resonate with me and this project has allowed us to share our stories with each other. Please continue over to read Lori’s letter to her daughter.
