When Did This Happen?

I did not even realize it until we were using the bathroom mirror together and I had to LOOK UP to talk to her! My gosh! She's a good 2 to 3 inches taller then me now, and she really hates it. She was really mad when I had Dan take this picture (sorry it's so bad, my camera is shot!). She makes me feel old now that I have to look up.
Dan insisted on taking this picture off centered so that you could see my Pepsi tin on the wall. Oh, and that funny guy poking up behind Amanda is a Pepsi guy that Reese brought to me from Germany.

  1. Amazing isn't it! My son (14) grew a foot in the last few weeks, we're eye to eye and I'm freakishly tall!

  2. Gee whiz! That means I'll be looking up at her too! Wow.


  3. I'm a super shorty and I know you're not, so I know she'd be really tall to me. I've got one that has just passed me, but Sparky is probably not quite going to. It distresses her a great deal...she'd love to have your daughter's height. Isn't it funny how we all want what we don't have.

  4. I know one day that will happen to me a too. YIKES,
    you sound like Kate from Jon & Kate plus 8 show with the camera. If you don't watch that she had a camera she hated, she finally got a new one, maybe if you complain loud and long enough you will get one too!


  5. My oh my, when did that happen? Seems like last time I saw her so was still just under your height... So what is she about 5'9"?


  6. Her eyes are actually slightly above Dan's, but she would never admit it...I think she's right at his height. Dan is 5'10. I am so shocked at how much she has grown this summer. I really did not think she would go over 5'6.


  7. I remember when I first grew taller than my mom--I loved it!!:) I have a feeling I'm going to experience my daughter surpassing me in height, too. Oh well, lucky her! I always wanted to be 2 inches taller than I am--silly, I know.

  8. wow! it goes fast, heh?

    you guys are beautiful!
