It's always bittersweet for me when my children reach certain milestones in their lives. I'm so happy for them because they've accomplished things yet I would love for them to stay this little. I know there's so much more enjoyment, albeit of a different variety, to come with each stage in life, but I love the baby/toddler stage so much. Their joy, their absolute love--there is no lukewarmness about them. My baby loves me and shows it. She's such a joy to have around. She also has a temper and has no problems showing it. My toddler loves Jesus and sings "Alleluia" at the top of her lungs. My 4 year old does not. She's a bit more reserved, but she used to sing. Pumpkin is one. I just can't stand it!!
This was not supposed to be about toddlers and babies. I wanted to write about Sister. She is performing in her first ballet recital. I love the school she attends. It's quite a serious school. Her Pre-Ballet class of 4 and 5 year olds will be performing as flowers in a production called A Bug's Life written by a local woman, choreographed by Sister's ballet instructor. Take a look at her pictures. Isn't she beautiful? Of course, I am totally unbiased. :)
