*~ Peanut ~*

She's going to be walking soon
and there will be no holding her back.
Thank goodness she's still going to need to hold my hand,
because I'm not ready to let her go.
Peanut...is still a peanut. But...every day I see her change and grow. She's learning every second of every day and watching her absorb it all...makes me sad. And proud. But, sad.

She is standing easily now, without holding on to anything. She'll just pop up in the middle of the floor, easy as can be and shoot me a toothy little grin. She looks at me and claps, wanting me to clap, too. I can't help but smile and fall in love with her...meanwhile, I'm feeling my heart break, just a little.

I want to take this moment...grasp it in my hands...and never let it go.
