She's All Grown Up....How Fleeting Are the Years!

Much too quickly, she's grown up!
 About 13 or 14 months old--dressed in the emperor's yellow...

 At three (or shortly before) in David Cleary's garden, where birds would walk right up to her.




I love this one, but in most of those against the black background her gorgeous hair and the black just melted together.

This is one of her favorites.

My baby sister, Katherine, is a photographer near Houston, TX; but that's way too far away, so we went to Portrait Innovations in Albuquerque.  We had a wonderful photographer, and we had our photographs about a half hour after her sitting.

It's hard for me not to get tearful looking at these.  I'm so grateful God matched us and that she is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.


Happy quiltmaking.....

She was so adorable as a baby and toddler, too cute. She is a beautiful young lady now. They do grow up so quickly.

You are so blessed to have such a beautiful daughter! My guess is that she is blessed to have you as a mom, too.

Both my boys are grown up, too. I'm lucky, I'll have one of the home this summer (2 if the oldest doesn't get a job after college graduation). Probably the last time I'll have at least one home. She's a cutie!
