My Darling Wee Girlie… growing up

Lily-Ann is growing up before my eyes.  These three years have passed by in a flash.  Today she sewed her first quilt (no backing on it, but that’s another lesson for another time).  She cut it, pieced it together, fed it into the sewing machine, and controlled the foot peddle.  That blows my mind a little bit.

As anyone who knows Lily well can attest to, she can be a handful.  Smart, strong willed, and determined to do things her own way…  (wonder where she gets THAT from).  😉  But she also has shining moments that leave me feeling so very proud.  She really is amazing, and I’m so very lucky.

We were leaving co-op the other day, and a gentleman held the door open for the wee girlie and I.  She looked up at him and said “Thank you sir”.  His jaw dropped, and I smiled as I thanked him too.  I then squeezed Lily-Ann’s hand and said “Thank you for your manners.  It makes me so happy when you are so nice.”

And yes.  I know.  I also owe you a Scraptastic Saturday post.  Its coming too.  I promise.
