I'm having a hard time taking it in. She's turned into such an amazing kid, I love her so dearly. But, I just pushed this kid out, like, last week, right? NO? How did this happen???? 5 years have slipped by, and now she's such a confident little girl, punching schoolyard bullies back when they give her a bloody nose, not caring if people tease, loving her little group of friends so loyally, wanting to make "treats" for her sisters and brother. The bossy one, the silly one, the very first one. Elisheva. My gift.
