one minute she's crawling on the floor in diapers. . .
the next minute, she's all grown up

13 going on 30, this one.

notice the dress moira's wearing? this dress was worn by her mother on one of our first dates back in 1986--22 years ago--when her mom was a freshman in college.

and now moira is filling the dress quite nicely. it may even fit her for another 9 or 10 years.

wear it to a semi-formal dance, she might.

wear it to her college graduation, just as her mother did.

and just yesterday, she was a baby bouncing on my knee.

time flies. it's so precious, almost as much as the children who occupy it.

reminds us not to waste it.
