Turning 14

I rarely let a day go by without remembering when Sofia was 2 or 4 or 10...she was so cute and confident. Remember when she said this...or danced to this song...or wore this...she was so young and sweet. I live in the memories of Sofia as a young girl - maybe it's because I was young too or maybe it's because it just seemed so simple then.
One of these days I have to accept the fact that I have raised a beautiful, talented and quite capable fourteen year old! But somehow - I still find comfort in knowing that she is just a young lass - still searching for her own way, creating her own artistic path and building her character step by step.
And....I kinda like that she is willing to jump into a cold pool...fully dressed in her school uniform - just puts it all into perspective.
Happy Birthday sweet Sofia - from someone who loves your creative spirit more than anything else.

...and 16 is just around the corner...

My son, 16 on the 2nd, is one I still think of as a young one, too.....but reality is that he, too, is capable and strong and he makes me stop and appreciate every, single moment.

Sophia looks soooo much like her mom - wow.
Congratulations to the both of you!
Happy Birthday!
