I don't even know what to write about these photos.
I've been emotional lately about this new stage in our lives with Alfie starting school. I had one of those moments today when Juliette was sitting on my lap at the computer watching her Birthday Video, over and over.
I had my arm wrapped around her soft little frame and was trying desperately to create a perfect memory of her in my mind. The weight of her body on my legs, the pony tail that sits right on the top of her head to keep the wispy hair out of her eyes and the Minnie Mouse nightgown she refuses to take off. She tried to escape a few times, but I convinced her to stay just a little longer.
Then of course, these pictures. I picked them up from Peekaboo Photos and marveled, just before taking Alfie to meet his Kindergarden teacher. I walked into the room and started bawling before I could even introduce myself. Steve reminds me every now and then, that it's "not sad" when they grow up, but he has yet to convince me.
