She's All Grow'd Up

Getting Ready....
I never thought she'd do it. She's tough, but I didn't think quite that tough. But on that day, when she came home with all "S's and E's" on her report card, she popped the question, "Can I get my ears pierced?" She was ready.

We promised her it would feel just like a pinch. 1....2....3! Then Came The Tears.
Through them she said, "Momma, it felt like a nail went through my ear!"

The Finished Product

And to put icing on the ever-growing cake, we finally finished her "big girl" room. Well, almost finished. There's still a few final touches, pictures to be hung, etc., etc., but this is the gist of it. Looks way older than her last room. Notice her painting on the wall? It was the inspiration!
(BTW...This room will probably never look this neat again!)

Almost 6 years old. How time flies....

So cute......I can still remember getting my ear pierced when I was around 6. It hurt, but I remember feeling SO grown up! LOL.

Love the big girl room......it is hard to believe she is almost 6 already.

Dear Grace,

You are braver than me.

Once again...you are my hero.
