Pink Back Pack

Our Avery girl is growing up way too fast! It's really starting to hit me that we are now in our last month with just Avery. And at the same time it's dawning on me how much she is growing up. In some ways it makes me sad. But it other ways, it makes me so full of joy to see her grow into such a sweet little girl. She is no longer our "baby"!

The other day she took her pink back pack to church for the first time. I took the day off from work because I had been sick, but I still took her in since she loves going to church. If it were up to her, she would go to church everyday!

Sidenote...For those of you who don't know, since I started working at New Life, Avery has been going with me every Monday and Thursday from 9-1:30. She absolutely loves going! It's a blessing because it isn't just childcare. The kids always get a bible lesson and time for worship, which she loves! I'm so thankful she likes it so much! I will only be working the next two weeks, but Avery will continue to go, even after her baby sister arrives. I think it's going to be a great outlet for her.
So, back to my point. She was so excited to take her back pack. Up until this day I always just sent her with a diaper bag. But it dawned on me that now she just needs a lunch and a few diapers. She was so proud of her pink back pack. She talked about it the entire car ride there and carried it into church herself. I know it seems silly...but that almost made me sad! My Avery has her own back pack! It just made me realize I need to cherish these moments. Before I know it she's going to be carrying her back pack into the preschool, kindergarten and so on! I think she looks absolutely precious wearing her back pack!
