The Big Second Grader's First Day


It feels like just yesterday I was holding your newborn infant body in my arms. I promised myself on that day that I would do everything in my power to love and protect you.

Now you talk incessantly about Zac Efron and High School Musical and think your dad is goofy. Where did the time go? When did you become such a big girl?

Don't grow up too fast little one. I'm greedy and don't want to share you. When you're away I miss your smile, laughter and the silliness you inherited from your dad.

I love you sweet daughter. I'm proud of who you are and that you have a true desire to do that which is good and right. And while it pains me that you're growing up so quickly I marvel at the young women you will one day become, but for now I'm excited for the second grade. Go get them!

She is growing up fast and I'm losing track of time because I thought Whitney was starting First Grade. Am I on the road to senility, I hope not?

Whitney is a sweety, we had some special moments together during your visit with us.

I love the uniform and I hope she grows to love them too.

Whitney looks very pretty and smart in her new uniform.

I know it's hard to share her, but think of all the joy and love she brings and will bring to others!

Be nice and share, proud Daddy!

What happened to my favorite part of this post - except for Whitney, of course?

That would be the pick trim on your house and on Whit's dress...

Make that PINK trim.

She's quite the little lady and we are so proud of her. We are equally proud of you for putting up two posts in one week. Hope this means you're back in the game. Love you bro!

She looks awesome. I think maybe we can do some hooking up and officially join the fam by arranging Whit and Sparky. We've already arranged for Soren and Squirrel. Now I just need a mate for Scuffy....
Ideas???
