    Awe, such a beautiful post! It’s such a hard thing, isn’t it. You want them to grow up, but then they do and it’s so darn sad!! Their outfits are adorable! I bet they will both have a fantastic time at school in September.

      It IS such a tough thing – I find myself wishing them to be older at times, and then lamenting about how they’re no longer babies at others.

      Aren’t the outfits so cute? They were both pretty tickled when we opened the parcel. Lila was especially proud. 🙂

    How ADORABLE are your girls?!?! And the raincoats and unbrella, ugggg I think squealed just a little. I am right there with you on the “HOW did they get this old” thing. My baby isn’t a baby any more, boo.

      Oh, thank you, Kadie. I assure you – their adorableness comes in big tidal waves. 🙂

      It’s crazy to think of what was once my teensy little baby, all snug in a carrier against me, is now stomping through puddles and pretending to read books.

      It’s happening so fast!

      (And yes, the raincoats and umbrellas were TOO cute. I love them!)

      Thank you, Marilyn! September is such a big month for the kids, but also for the moms, too! 🙂

    Such beautiful outfits and such a beautiful post. I couldn’t help but imagine your daughters reading their Mama’s carefully crafted words down the road when they’re young women…or Mamas of their own. I know that they will feel so blessed and so loved by you!

      I hope that you’re right, Lauren! I’ll have to make a point to save my posts as the blog progresses. It’s really a map of the girls’ lives.

      Oh – when Kindergarten hits, I’m going to be a hot mess – I know it. Even having two in preschool is mind-boggling to me. How did this happen so quickly?

      (Is Kindergarten full-day where you are? Or half-day?)

          Probably take over Bloglandia and become its Queen! 🙂

          (our K classes are full-day too. It’s going to be weird when we get to that time – a year from this September)

      I don’t know what I’m going to do when it’s full-day! Just this “everyone in school” thing is mind-boggling enough for me!

      I don’t know what I’ll do when it’s Kindergarten time. Preschool is already giving me butterflies!
      I hope that Grace has a fabulous first week!
