When Ivy started to come and play last August she was just Ivy.... today was the last day for me to watch a little girl who is so near and dear to our hearts, the one we affectionately have renamed "IvyGirl"!!!
I found this picture of Ivy that I took on the first day she came to play. She has grown up so much and I am so thankful for her and the friendship I have with her mom and dad. (Poor guy has seen me each and every morning half awake, towel on my head, and no make-up). God has big plans for this family, and I do too.... like for them to come and visit us!
I couldn't think about it all day because it just wanted to make me cry. But I found myself holding her a little tighter, kissing her a little more, and just loving my Ivygirl. I didn't even have the heart to tell John Hunter to tell her bye (I mean we will see her on Thursday... and there is not sense explaining "moving" to a 2 year old),
Here is a picture Ivy's mom took of her last week in an outfit I monogrammed for her.... she is getting so big. And I love her so much!We love you Ivy Girl!
