Who are you and what have you done with my baby?

Oh, HI! Let's see if I can still make this thing work. Here we go. I got it figured out.

Recently I have had a chance to hold a few babies. Yes, people have entrusted ol' butter fingers with their precious offspring. I don't know what they were thinking either.
Anyway, that led me to the conclusion that my baby isn't a baby anymore. I'm sure other people noticed long ago. But it has taken me until now to figure it out. I've been trying to delay the inevitable for a long time. I, until recently, still put her in 18m onsies. What! They still fit. So why shouldn't she wear them. I gave her coffee to stunt her growth. OK, that one is a lie. But I did think about it.
But I can deny it no longer. These pictures prove my point.

She a big girl. She is quick to tell you she uses the potty. Yes, TELL you. She's finally talking. In words. And if you show any interest what so ever in her pottying she will show you her pink underwear. Don't believe me, just ask the little old lady in Target the other day who was just a little too impressed by Anna's statement. She got an eye full of pink panties. Speaking of undies, she is very opinionated about the underwear in her flashing arsenal. Only pink ones will do. Do you know how many pink panties come in a package of little girl underwear? I do. About three. The rest I may as well throw in the garbage. Because she isn't going to wear without waging WW III.

My baby is growing. I miss the baby. But I love the little person she's become. Flashing and all.

Hmmm - I wonder if she will take after her mother and show her underwear to the whole church whilst singing in the children's choir? Oooops - did I say that out loud? ;)

Oh MY. She's gotten SO tall! I think we need to see a video to hear the talking...When I first started reading your blog she was just a little old thing.

Oh my goodness. Anna has gotten so big and all that hair. I can't believe how much she has grown since I last checked in on your blog. Not having my own internet connection at home has been awful for me - not being able to post to my own blogs and not being able to check in on my blogging friends. I totally understand the not wanting to let her grow up I feel the same why about my boys. It really is amazing how fast they grow.

She is precious! It's so good hearing from you again! I was beginning to worry that you were having no little pieces of Heaven there anymore. I will agree ... the baby is gone! You will be glad too know, that I tried to bribe Grandma into swiping the green hat for me when Anna was there for a recent visit, but she didn’t want to face WWIIII ! : )

I got your blog to work, although my computer keeps flashing back and forth to a black screen, that can't be good right? ok its getting faster, I guess if i misspell any words i have an excuse i can;t see my screen anymore. Love the undie story, Sophia doesn't show hers off, but she is particular about what kind she wears :) Love the post, Anna looks so gorwn up and beautiful. Take care!!
