All growed up

That moment when you realize your little girl isn't so little. That she has poise and maturity and you get a glimpse of what she'll be like when she's 16. 

The other night at the dinner table Avila said that she feels older - that she doesn't feel 6, more like 7 or 8. One of our main goals as parents is to keep their innocence as long as possible. To allow them to be 6 going on 6 and 13 going on 13. Not 13 going on 18. So we told her that someday she won't ever be 6 years old anymore and that she should love it and enjoy it and never want to be more or older than she is. 

Her response: Yeah, 6 feels pretty good.
