Sweet 16

Yes my daughter has turned 16! I can't believe how the time has flown by. She is an amazing young woman who I admire. I remember when we brought her home from the hospital and didn't know what the heck to do and wanting to do nothing but hold her in my arms and protect her from the world. I remember when she was learning to walk how she would smile when taking those first steps, or reading bedtime stories to her. I remember all of it like it was yesterday. She is now driving, dating, and preparing for life when she moves out. She is thinking about colleges and what she wants to do when she graduates. She is thinking about world issues and how she will be able to make a difference. I don't know when it happened but my little girl has grown up. It makes me happy yet sad at the same time. I look at her and think where did my baby go and realize that time doesn't stand still and that we should all take time and be in the moment with our children because they don't stay little forever they grow up and turn into amazing young adults and make us proud.. Oh how I love my sweet Sierra Nicole...


  1. Wow! I can't believe that much time has passed! I still remember one of the first times I came to your house and Sierra wanted to show us all the cool flips and tricks she could do on the trampoline. :) She is beautiful! It looks like that picture is dated 2007. Is that really 3 years old?

  2. No Tammy that photo was taken just a few months ago, she didn't put the correct date on her camera..
