This Girl
By Patti Milazzo
Presented by Amy Brinkman and Nancy Martinez

Journaling: “growing, changing so quickly. I see these pictures and it hits me… you’re not a baby anymore. In just this last year you’ve become more confident, beautiful, independent, and contemplative about the world around you. But then I’m reminded with a look or gesture or your words that you are still My Little Girl.
