Okay its official...I am now the shortest person in my house.....
look at that sweet face, how can she be taller than me...where did the time go. Oh, yea, she thinks its funny, just like the boys, Ha ha, mom's short. Now she is only 1/2 inch taller, but to her, it might as well be inches, which it probalbly will be. I never thought as myself as short, I am 5'6" but amoung these giants living in my house...
Well, to say I am sad is an understatement....she is my baby...where does the time go...I wish I could stop time, she is ten and I think I would like to keep her that age, still fun, still likes to play and color...okay, I am done, I am just getting too your babies!!!!


  1. She is gorgeous! You better get your shot gun ready!! LOL I'm the shortest here too...they love it don't they?!!

  2. Oh Stephanie they do grow up so fast and I don't mean just in height! My oldest is now 30! Yikes indeed! My baby girl will be 28 in February! So yes hug them everyday or as often as you can, I do!

  3. She is so pretty.. all my babies are out on their own,, I am the shortest in my family as well,, except for one Daughter, she is shorter then me... yea.... she is just about 5' I am 5'2" they seem to like it that I have to look up at but I remind them that I am still Mom.. smile...


  4. If she's ten you are in BIG trouble! What a beautiful girl! And I would like to add that you should encourage the playing and coloring. I still wanted Barbies @ 13 and Actually have bought them all my life! Don't loose the kid in you that plays!!
    Hugs, Lisa

  5. She is the cutest ever. I love her head band, so sweet, so girlie.
    My husband is 6'2 and my son is 6'5" and I'm 5'3! They hide all the cookies on the top shelf in the kitchen cabinets because they know I can't reach them!!
    They grow up way too fast. My baby boy is now 34!

  6. Your daughter is adorable! She looks like a fun, happy young lady!! How's the cottage coming along?

  7. It goes by so fast, doesn't it? What a gorgeous young lady...your daughter is absolutely stunning!

    My mom is the shorty in our family at 5'2", she had four kids ranging in height 5'6" to 6'6". People are just getting taller...don't you think?

    Love and hugs,

  8. She is beautiful! My niece is growing by leaps and bounds too, she just turned 9 and I am thinking by this time next year she may pass my 5'3 1/2 inches! Love the headband too! And the pooch!

  9. What a pretty girl, my sisters and I are very tall the tallest 5'11" I am 5'9". I am sure you are pleased that she will be taller then you! Hugs, Diane

  12. Stefanie, you must come see what I did with the pillowcases I bought from you! xo

  13. What a doll!!! :-)

    Happens with Grand Daughters too. Mine loves it. -chuckle- So far, she's the only Grand who is taller. The 16 year old is same as me and her Mom. But the clock is ticking. The others will soon catch up and surpass. :-)

  14. Your daugther is a beauty!! I know our son who is now 22 is about 6 feet tall.. he has definately surpassed his father in I in height. They do grow up very fast... don't they?

  15. What a cutie!
    They do grow way too fast...
    and very tall too!
    Enjoy your family!
    Hugs, Mary

  16. My babies are grown. You're taller than me by an inch however. Tell them to stop teasing you!

  17. Ahhhhhhh......what a beauty! I'm 5'2" daughter is 5'9 1/2"...........scary. My little grandson is nine and is nearly as tall as I am!

    Have a beautiful weekend.

    Warm blessings,

  18. I hear you! I am 5'7. My husband is 6'4 and my step children (girls) are both 5'11. My 12 year old is now 5'7 1/2 and growing fast. But my 15 year old is 5'5. Lucky for her as she is a ballet dancer and 5'11 might be tough. LOL But anyway, I was looking forward to feeling petite for the first time in my life:-) Oh well...
    But you're beat by your 10 year old...they just grow so fast. sigh...
