oh! my! word!
seven years ago today i had no idea what it looked like to be a parent. i had no clue what life change was going to hit me over the head. i didn't realize that i would not sleep through the night again or that changing my clothes would be an hourly event. allie has taught me so much. i haven't done it all right, but we've done it together. i'm grateful for the LORD'S hand in our relationship!
i could stare in these eyes all day! she is so big... so mature... so sweet... so strong... such a leader... such a a great big sis.... such a compassionate daughter... such a learner... such a beautiful daughter of the true KING!
we have our days of growing and learning, but overall - when I look at this pic - she's come so far. what a jewel of a daughter we have. i'm BLESSED to be allie's mommy!
