February Photo Challenge #4

It's a big girl kind of dayKayleigh has days where I feel like she grew a year or two overnight. She starts talking in long sentences and adds words to her vocabulary that I didn't know she knew. She does things that don't seem possible, and in general makes me feel like I need to push the PAUSE button on life so I can enjoy her a little more. Today was one of those days (at least in the morning). We were all playing downstairs and Kayleigh's baby started crying. Her little face got sad when she heard the whines and she went running to fish her baby from the corner she left it in yesterday. She cuddled her baby close, whispered sweetly in her ear, "It's okay, baby, Mommy is here. She won't let you be sad or cold or lonely. I love you baby" (Kiss, kiss, kiss). On top of all that, we tried a half ponytail today with her hair. (Still need a little more length in the bangs to make it an all day long hair solution AND Mommy needs more practice). BUT, she looked so grown up ... don't you agree?
