Way Too Fast

I am having a hard time grasping that my first child is already 9 years old.  Where did the time go?  
          When she was born, she was our everything- she captured out hearts and we never let go.
She had this adorable face that made you smile- she giggled and laughed and was a pure joy.
 She was a happy little girl - loved to dance and sing silly songs. 
And it makes me happy that she still does.
As a first child, every experience we had with her was so fun and new.  
It was as if we were seeing things through her eyes.
She is such a caring person - wants to make everyone around her happy. 
Um, except her brother....
She is pretty fearless, and will try lots of new stuff- 
roller coasters, jumping off the diving board, tubing behind the boat.
She just jumps right in and tries things - without hesitation - 
even when it comes to trying new foods- like her favorite, broccoli.  Just kidding....
As she got older, she became more picky about what she would wear. 
 Oy, all ready? 
No more frilly dresses huh?
She loves spending time outdoors - riding bikes, hiking, playing in trees.
But her favorite thing...
It has really been a joy to watch the progression over the past 5 years.  
She has turned into a great player and I am excited to see where it leads her.
I am so proud of the beautiful, confident, helpful, friendly young lady that she has become.
She better always have time for her Number One Fan....

Happy 9th Birthday Sissy!
We love you so much and are so proud of you.
Even though these past 9 years have gone by way to fast, it has been a joy and I would not change a minute of it!

Ohhh. My first will be 8 in August, and I completely understand! I don't know where the time has gone. But I do remember those precious moments of firsts with her. So special.

oo meant to say I think you should do a little movie of soccer pictures! I think a lot of people would like to collect sports pictures/videos in one place! (Of course just a suggestion :-))

I never understood what people meant by time flies until I had Trey. Now I totally agree with you the kiddos do grow up way to fast.
I hope Sissy has a wonderful birthday! She is one beautiful girl!
