A couple weeks ago Anna and I spent some girl time together and I kept thinking about how fast she’s growing up. Anna has long loved dressing up fancy, wearing my shoes, (which are definitely not fancy), and as of late, enjoying shopping. Not grocery shopping, but mall shopping. She’s made it very clear that she doesn’t love shopping for food, but going to the mall is her happy place.
On our recent girls night, we went to the mall to play Glo-Golf and visit Claires. Anna had a little money to spend and watching her shop and look around Claires with her purse hanging on her shoulder, she felt SO grown up to me. How is she this old already?
Anna recently learned how to paint her own fingernails, she styles her own hair (most of the time), and continues to put cute outfits together and loves clothes. She’s even started giving me fashion advice. Heaven knows I need it! This week she politely informed me that my other pair of flip-flops would look much better with my outfit. And, I think she was right!
That day at Claires, Anna purchased a sleeping mask that looks like a little bunny with a crown. She loves that thing and actually can sleep with it on! We’ve taken pictures to prove it. It’s so cute.
Last night Anna came up behind me and wrapped her arms around me. I asked what the wonderful hug was for and she said, “Because you’re my mom. I couldn’t ask for a better one.” Oh my heart.
Anna-girl, you are growing so fast and I’m enjoying every minute of it. We love you and love the person God has made you to be!
