Not so little now

Ashlyn had her school pictures on Wednesday. This was a very hard day for me. I was not there to pick out her outfit, or fix her hair and tell her 100 times to "show me how you are going to smile". Ashlyn is probably a little relieved that her Daddy and Step Mom dressed her because she got to wear a more "trendy outfit". She knows her mommy would have dressed her in a monogrammed bishop dress with a 4 inch bow, and she would have been screaming,"I am too old for that mommy! Come on. Save those for Madi!"
Robbie took a picture for me, and she looked beautiful. Her step mother, Robin, did a great job on her hair and her cute outfit. Thank you Robin for being there for Ashlyn when I can not. This really means alot to me that you love her as much as you do. Thank you!
I can not believe my baby is 9. Not so little anymore! See you very soon sweet girl!

Good luck with your boot camp! I'm going to try to start at least walking/jogging in the afternoons while the weather is so nice!
