These Girls

These girls have been changing so much lately. No longer toddlers, but elementary aged girls in the last few years before they are "Tweens". Their baby teeth have been falling out only to be replaced by large, crooked adult teeth. They are still beautiful in a sweet, awkward way, but the change in their smiles has made them appear older, less baby-like. They both read chapter books like crazy. When given the choice of a book at bedtime, they no longer scan the picture books on their shelf. Their conversations have become deeper as they are trying to make sense of who they are and what they stand for. Of course they are still silly and sweet and innocent, but sometimes I stand back and am amazed at they little girls they are becoming.
