The passing years

Hermione grew another year older this week.

I pause and stare. Not always easy to do in the midst of the excitement. The party isn't over yet. There are more celebrations to come.

She's no longer a little seedling. Her roots are growing deeper. I like to think they're stronger too. Laying down solid foundations. Foundations that will support her in whatever choices she makes in this world.

Happy birthday baby!

Eden was twelve last month. I want to be totally selfish and keep them little and with me forever.
I'm sure her foundations are strong because you've help her to build them. Watching them grow is such a double-edged sword!
