Vivie is growing up so much lately. Her personality has changed from "little" girl to "big" girl almost overnight. She has moved from being totally dependent on me and others close to her to being charged with independence. She will walk through the house and go where she wants as she pleases. Most amazingly to me, she will sit and read an entire braille book in one sitting now. I get teary just watching her giggle to herself as she discovers a funny story. Time really does go by so fast. And even though I do not anticipate my baby growing up, I do have so many wonderful expectations of the woman she will become. I am making every effort to enjoy every season...because inevitably, they change.
