Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

My little girl is growing up. Sometimes too fast. Sometimes not fast enough. Lately I have really been trying to be intentional about spending quality time with Mackaylan each and everyday as I feel kids often spell love "T-I-M-E." Yesterday Mackaylan and I had a fun afternoon playing "baseball" in the backyard. Nothing beats hearing the thrill of excitement and seeing her confidence soar each time she hit the ball. And then to top it all off, at one point she looked up at me with those baby blue eyes and a big smile on her face and said, "I love playing baseball with you, Mama!" It was in that moment I was reassured that the laundry could wait, dinner could be a little later, the house could be dusty and emails and phone calls could go unanswered. I knew I was doing exactly what needed to be done!

Below are a few pictures of our fun afternoon together. Mackaylan assisted with writing and typing the words about each picture.

This is me with my new toy.
It is a bat.

This is me swinging the bat!

I am looking at mommy.

I am holding a bat and ball.
