I just posted on Facebook about the sobering thought that this is Liv's last Christmas as a child. She turns 18 in a little over two weeks. Even though Thom says that she'll always be our baby, I can't help but feel saddened by time's march.
I know she'll be home from college next year to celebrate, but eventually she's going to have her own family and her own children to celebrate with. I'm feeling incredibly sad about that. I know I can't trap her in amber and keep her as a child forever, but sometimes I wish I could.
