Then and Now

The passage of time.....
Dahlia turns 2
March 4, 2005

Dahlia turns 3
Dahlia turns 4

Dahlia turns 5

Dahlia turns 6

My beautiful girl is so grown-up!

Reminds me that each minute with our children is precious and should be treasured. (If only I wasn't so 'brain-dead' most of the time.) It's one of the reasons I wanted to start this blog - to force me to pause and really take in everything before it passes. To freeze frame bits and pieces instead of living on fast forward.
I give you permission to remind me 0f my words (gently, of course) - should I show signs of forgetting.

Such an amazing progression. I love "before and after" photos. Someday, she'll stand there in her wedding gown (I'm making myself cry just thinking about it!)

Makes you not want to blink, huh!

I just stumbled upon your blog and noticed that your daughter came home in November 2004. Were you part of the "April Fireflies?" My youngest daughter, Vivi, also came home in Nov. 2004 and is from Guangdong. Dahlia is beautiful!
