This morning, I woke up to a silent house. Silence. Sissy had her first sleepover at Mimi’s house with her big sister, and for the first time in two and half years — I had a kid-free morning. I should have been excited, but I was sad and nostalgic. This was a big step for my baby girl, it means she is growing up. I blinked, and she isn’t a baby any more.
If I could, I would keep my girls exactly as they are right now forever. Ages six and two, they a perfect. But it won’t last, they have to grow up. So I take pictures and try to preserve these memories every chance I get.
So when I was given the opportunity through the Playtex Baby Mom’s Trust to have a hand-drawn illustration of my baby girl created as part of the Beginnings Imagined program, I jumped at the chance. I provided a photo of Sissy and answered a few questions about her personality. A few weeks later I received an illustration of my baby girl complete with a description of her.
