I love these photos I took of Harper on her birthday. She loves to swing - which she noted is her favorite thing to do when I interviewed her this past week.
It's hard watching her get older, but seeing her happy and healthy - full of so much joy definitely makes it easier.
Before her birthday, I was talking to her about how I was sad that she was growing up.
Wisely she said, "It's okay mommy. That's how life works. We have birthdays and we get older - and that's okay."
She's right. It will be okay.
