As Long As I’m Living….

I was flipping through photos we took last weekend when I ran across this one of Grace on my back. I quickly recalled that I had another photo like that just a year old so back, so I scurried through my facebook photos in hopes of finding it. I was right about having a similar picture. I was wrong about it being a year or so old. When my eyes fell on it, I realized with one breath how much has changed since the earlier photo was taken.

  • 30 total pounds between the two of us
  • just over a foot inย heightย (all her)
  • 5 school years
  • two different homes
  • two different cities
  • two different marriages
  • nearly 5 birthdays
  • 3 boyfriends (her, plead the 5th on mine)

Only a couple of things stayed the same.

  • I still love the color turquoise
  • She’s still my baby
