My How the Girl has Grown

Above are a picture from the first day of school (left) and the last day of school (right).  Our girl has grown so much in just these ten months.  Not only has she changed physically, but emotionally, cognitively, and spiritually as well.
Physically, she’s several inches taller and has thinned out so much.  She’s pretty much lost that little girl look and has begun to look like a young lady.  The last day of school found her with her first lose tooth, which she lost a few days later.  All these physical signs that my baby is not my baby any more.
Emotionally, Maggie has never been more sure of herself.  She carries herself with a presence that continues to amaze her parents.  She is very loving and helpful, always there to help someone younger or someone needing assistance.  She is awesome to watch with toddlers and babies.
Cognitively, Maggie has blossomed in a big way this year.  She started reading around Christmas, and now we can’t keep her in books fast enough.  She’s able to read just about anything you put in front of her, but still likes her storybooks with the pictures in them.  We can no longer spell in front of her as she figures it out in minutes.  She is also telling time and counting money, so not much gets by her.

Spiritually, she has grown into a very confident child of God. She knows God loves her and that Mommy and Daddy love her too. She has become an extremely strong leader, and we can’t wait to see how God is going to use that.

We are so proud of our little girl.  We are so thankful that we are the ones God blessed to be her parents.
