There are certain milestones that make a mom realize, "wow, my baby's growing up." When they start walking, for instance, or the first day of preschool.
This weekend we hit a milestone for Juliet that makes me so proud and yet so bittersweet that my baby is growing up so fast:
The big girl bike! Gary took her on a special shopping trip for it yesterday and she loved it so much that she insisted on riding it out of the store!
We spent a sunny afternoon riding bikes on the driveway (Audrey is now learning on the tricycle). Happy to make these memories with my kids but in but of disbelief at how quickly it all goes.
