Some Thoughts On My Daughter

Dog Bone Sugar Cookies

In 3 weeks, Essley turns 4. I won't get into the whole cliche of how quickly time passes with kids or how fast they grow, but I will say that I am having a difficult time grasping the fact that this little baby to whom I seemingly just gave birth is now so far from infancy. I look at her and she seems so grown up you guys. She is bright, independent, creative, and kind, an incredible teacher, and while admittedly sometimes a complete a-hole, a really wonderful human being. I talk about the kids from time to time around here, but the more emotional posts have been about Emmett and what he's been through with his epilepsy journey. Today I felt inspired to pop in and just say something about how much I adore my daughter. I am so grateful for her.

Any other mamas of daughters, do you feel me here? Aren't they just the best? (Tied with the sons of course.) Oh, and thanks for allowing me to express the occasional gushing of emotions around here guys. Gotta keep it real now and then.



  1. This is really beautiful. I hope I have a daughter someday. :)

  2. I still remember your birth story. I enjoy reading your family posts and seeing Essley blossom into the cutest little princess :)
