Something about these pictures made me realize for sure that my sweet pea is not a sweet, cuddly, little baby anymore. Doesn't she look so darn grown up?! Wow...I can't believe how un-baby she is. While I miss having that sweet-smelling, cuddly, cooing teeny baby, I do LOVE this stage. She is challenging, but she is curious. She is figuring things out for herself. She is discovering the world around her. And how cool is it that I get to see things through her eyes - makes me definitely appreciate the little things in life that I never would have noticed before!
