Courtney celebrated her 10th birthday on April 8th. It's hard to believe my little girl is 10! Time sure does fly. It's bittersweet because I love watching her grow up and become this awesome young lady, but at the same time, I'm sad that it's happening so fast. Can we please slow down? Just for a minute...I want to see you...just tiny, opening your eyes for the first time to see me looking at you, so proud you were mine. I want to hear your first words all over again. I want to see you taking your first step from me to Daddy, being so brave and letting go. I want to take your hand again and walk to Kindergarten class. There's so many moments I would love to relive, just to see you little again. But I know I must let go and watch you grow and become the young lady I see more of each and every day. I love you Courtney J. You're such a blessing to me.
