Sometimes when I look at Anna a certain way or listen to something she's telling me I notice how much she's changed.
Like all Mom's I can say that it's going by way too fast.
Thank goodness she's still my little girl with her interests in fairies, little sister games, little kid shows, and playmobil. I know and am the happiest Mom that she's far, far away from any interest in preteen stuff.
But when I look at her I can see such change and often when I'm behind the camera I can see a glimpse of that beauty she will hold one day as a teenager.
I love having all of this extra time with her in the summer. I am so grateful for it.
She is such a gift in my life. I have learned more from being Anna's Mom then I think I've learned in my entire life.
I love you Anna Jing Qian.
