Letter to Abby

Dear Abigail,

According to you, you are six and a half now. Actually, we aren't there quite yet. February 15th marks that important half birthday. And yes, I am clinging to this last almost month. I both love and hate you growing up. You are still my little girl in so many ways but I dare not call you my baby very often. You are quite determined that you are a big girl through and through. You are my baby though and you always will be.

You have a sweet heart my girl. It makes me smile to see your love for Jesus and others growing so big. I happened to mention the 7,000 people that were getting let go from their jobs in the oil field. I explained what that meant and you asked to pray for them at bedtime. You also recently wanted to write a letter to your preschool teacher from last year. You did it all by yourself and it melted my heart. 

Just look at all that sweetness. I love how you write phonetically. You are learning so quickly. Speaking of learning - you were reader of the month in your Kindergarten class. Books are one of your favorite "toys" and I hope that continues. Somehow you are just over 49 inches tall now. I swear you will be taller than me in the blink of an eye. That's not hard to do since I am not very tall but you are the tallest in your class. 

I am so proud to be your Mommy. Have I said I love that you still call me "Mommy" instead of Mom? Sometimes you even say Mama. The other day you made me a badge to wear that I had to take a photo of. It says "Soopr Mommy". Sigh.

I am so blessed to be your Mommy. You are worth every tear soaked pillow and hard moment I ever had in the wait for you.
