A year ago today I was holding my very newborn baby girl. I blinked and now she's one. ONE. Why are my babies growing up so fast?! Not all that long ago I posted about how I didn't understand why moms get emotional when their kids graduate preschool/kindergarten. Then my baby girl's first birthday got close and all of a sudden I understood it. I love all that she can do and the little girl she is becoming, but I know that she is my last baby and she's not that much of a baby anymore...and that makes me sad. And I know that everytime she reaches a "growing up" milestone I'm going to struggle with it knowing that my children are growing up and it's happening WAAYYY to quickly for me. I know newborns are exhausting and involve lots of work. But they are your precious babies and are worth every single sacrifice. While I'm so excited for Baby Girl, I am sad that she and Little Man are growing up so quickly. I'm a Mama and those beautiful children of mine hold my a big peice of my heart. I loved all their baby snuggles and as exhausting as it can be, I like their dependency on me. I have been so blessed with the most wonderful children I could have ever asked for and I wish I could slow down time to enjoy every single moment of their childhood just a little longer.
