I took my younger daughter with me on an errand tonight and we stopped in Starbucks for a cookie. Normally Starbucks is my guilty pleasure and an "adult only" store (they have way too much in touching range for a two and three year old to be trusted). But, I never get time alone with the little one so we went in. She had water, I had decaf, we shared a package of Madelines. She sat across from me at the table in her "princess dress" and sweater, laughing and pointing out what everyone was doing in the store. Her words are becoming clearer, her hair is getting longer, she looks more like a little girl than a baby. It was one of those moments that made me so sad and happy at the same time. Babies get bigger, that's how it is supposed to work. She is already amazing and I can see God's fingerprints all over her. I can't wait to see what she grows into, to see the woman she becomes. But, oh how I wish I could save just a little of this precious two year old!
