Meredith's turning 6

Can you believe that Meredith will turn 6 years old on Sunday?

Seriously. How is it that in just a few days I will have a 6 year old daughter?

Like, wasn't it just yesterday that she was born?

Now, I know that I'm not old enough to have a child that will be in 1st grade next year.

It must be some fluke.

Because there's no way she's that old.

Is there some way to keep her in this cuddly, so excited with life (and her parents) stage?

I guess I'm OK with her growing up. (Or rather, I guess I have to be OK with her growing up.)

I just don't want it to happen quite so fast!

Oh to have those days back again! Wait until she graduates from high school! Yeah, take your time and wait.

Tatum's 1 1/2 and I'm right there with you. I can't imagine her turning 6, but I'm sure it will be here before I know it! Happy Birthday, Meredith!

Happy 6th Birthday Meredith!!!
Hope your day is wonderful. Just think, now you can use two hands to count your age. That means your a big girl for sure.
Its funny how fast they get big, seems just like yesturday that Tyler was 6, now he's 13. I'm afraid that in a blink they'll all be grown, sometimes I feel like we spend to much time working for a perfect tomorrow without enjoying today! Remember to not just sit behind the camera all day but to be in the pictures too.
Happy Birthday Meredith
