Making Time Stand Still

Well I definitely was not in my happy place with my last post.  I needed a couple of days, a week even to get out of my slump.... 
Thankfully for all, the slump is gone and this post will have a much happier tone.

Alexa has a couple more days as a 6 year old.  Her 7th birthday is this Saturday.  And we have quite a busy couple of days ahead of us.  As of today, regular dance classes have ended for the year! (Hooray! Oops--did I say that out loud?)  All that is left is one rehearsal and then this weekend she will be performing in 3 shows!!  Somehow, we will fit in some birthday celebrations in there. 

It is crazy to think that in a couple of days I will be the mother of a 7 year old.  Where did the time go?  How did it go by so fast?  In the blink of an eye, my baby is not a baby, she is not a toddler, and she is not a preschooler, she is a beautiful little girl!  And growing into such a wonderfully loving child!

Just in case I needed reminding of how big my girl is getting, today we received our dance pictures that we took a couple weeks ago...

I wish I could have time stay still... just a bit. 

Time is flying by and I need to take a minute to stop and soak up all these moments--all the snuggles that I know are nearing an end, all the hugs and kisses that will soon be less and less.  How do I keep all these moments--the moments of laughter, the moments of learning something new, the moments of bonding, the moments of appreciation, the moments that fill my heart with joy--how do I keep them all in the very tip of my memory?

I guess this post was more bittersweet than it was happy....
