Growing Pains

Sometimes growing pains do not end once you have become fully grown. Sometimes you experience them throughout your life in one phase or another. I am in a growing pain phase. Robyn took her senior portraits today. I am so proud of her. She has accomplished so much and has such a bright future ahead of her. As she took her pictures, I thought back on her life. She is our first born. Phillip and I were absolutely terrified of her when she was born. Neither of us had any experience with newborns. Luckily for all of us, we made it through the baby years. The older she grew, the more fun she became. That continues to be true today. She is almost ready to leave us and find her happiness in the world. The problem is I am not ready. I have the next 12 months to get my act together about this. I can do it for her.
