fun with libby

(mirror, mirror)
(just a minute)
I know, she is getting so big. However, I have to remember to rejoice in the fact that at twelve, she is still a little girl. She is only going to get bigger, which is a beautiful thing, too.
Enjoy your day!

I agree that it is so sad, and yet so happy that they grow up. She's a beautiful girl. (Love the skirt!)

Did you go out for a special lunch or dinner? I took my "big girl" to lunch at Abigails Tea yesterday yesterday. We topped it off with S'mores scones. MON DIEU!!!!!

Beautiful post! Libby carries herself with such grace - you're doing a great job mama.

She's so sophisticated looking. I didn't look even a 10th that sophisticated when I was that age (heck, and I still don't!)

Jane said...

It's just all so bittersweet right now.

Hilary said...

That's so sweet! And obviously your daughter has picked up some of your fantastic style. :)

Jan said...

At least you know to cherish the moments - she is precious!

Linda said...

Ok--now you have me totally intrigued...I am dying to see the rest of her cute little room! She looks way more grown up then 12--I thought she was older! Enjoy her so much now before the teen years creep in--things change as they change.

She is just so sweet ! Enjoy every minute. It looks like you had a nice time.

I, too, spent the Spring Break day with my daughter yesterday. The contrast between your apparently genteel afternoon and mine, however, is so extreme I had a bit of a giggle. See, I thought it would be "interesting" to take mine into Harvard Square. Via subway. So pretty much everything was opposite of your day - from the bums to the dirty streets to Shuba bowls at a seedy Korean joint... after which we promptly visited the wretched bathroom tucked away in the corner of the third floor of the Harvard Coop. Ay. Your way, as always, is so much prettier. Fortunately, I didn't bring a camera to mine!

Kara said...

I can only imagine the fun you two have together. A perfect pair.

Thea said...

such a great age! I think the tweeners are just fabulous - such an amazing time. Enjoy it - and enjoy each other!

beautiful.

the treat girl said...

Embrace every moment and memory....Cindylou is 14 now and I'm not the most important thing in her world anymore...clothes and friends have replaced me...but yet watching her grow into a young lady is priceless.

Linda said...

Don't they grow so fast!? My son is 12 and I know boys are not usually mature as girls but he changes everyday.

Agreed, she does look quite sophisticated. And that skirt is lovely!

Sandy said...

it seems like such a sweet age to have a daughter at though. right in between a little girl, and on her way to growing up. she looks lovely!

iknitipurl said...

Ah little girls, they do grow up so fast don't they?

Jill said...

What a beautiful young lady.

Kristyn Knits said...

looks like it was a wonderful time full of mother daughter moments. she's lovely (just like her mom).

The photo of your daughter walking away from you is such a poignant one!When our children are little, we see them most running to us with outstretched arms. As they get older, we are often watching them walk away--to school,to a friend and slowly into their adult lives. As the mom of a 24 year old daughter, I can tell that no matter where your daughter goes you will always follow her with your heart! MAMASAN

What's so very special about the bond you share with your beautiful daughter is the relationship you'll have as friends, woman to woman, as she gets bigger, older. Now that's a sweet presence to know.

rosemary said...

what a special treasure that day must have been.

molly said...

I love this. The photos, the words, the whole happy-sobby parenting bit behind it. A.k.a., truth, life, love. Love it.
