Bittersweet Milestones...

The older our children get,
the more bittersweet milestones we encounter.
We had one last week.
It was bound to happen.
It was exciting
and, almost, dreaded at the same time (by Mama). ;o)

Our sweet Beth hungrily bit into her toast last week
and departed with a 5 year old friend...

Oh, how they grow so fast!


Mrs. C said...

The same thing happened at our house, too, LOL! :) Our babies are growing up!

How Sweet! I know the feeling. I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!!! I love the new dresses and your "school" pictures as well. Very pretty. It makes me wish I could sew & take a decent photo. lol

Jodi said...

Oh, I love a gapped tooth smile! Sweet! Congratulations Beth! :o)

Those departed teeth make a smile so much sweeter!

Alesha said...

Oh how sweet to be blogging this morning and see pictures of TWO girlie-girls with missing teeth - Beth and Mrs. C's Curly Girl!

So fun!!! Isaac now has two top teeth coming in and two bottom teeth coming in. What a little snaggle-tooth he is!!!

May God bless your day,

Nikki said...

I know the feeling.

Beth, you look so sweet.

Time flies by to quickly for a Mother's heart.

Oh, she is so sweet. I still have a couple of those teeth packed away to look at from time to time and just remember. . . . . . . connie from Texas

Congratulations Beth! My little Marissa just lost her first two teeth on the same night a couple months ago:*( ~They sure do grow up so very fast. So far Maxwell is holding out for me! He doesn't even have a wiggly tooth yet ;).
