that about 18 months ago I still had about 3 weeks left until Kynslee was born it makes me realize how fast the time has really gone!! A little over 17 months ago we were bringing home our new baby girl and dealing with colic all night long. Then now..... She's running around, climbing and getting into everything and calling me mama and asking for things - where has my baby gone?! Today as she reached for my hand to take me where she wanted me to go I bent down and picked her up. I stopped and thought that one day she won't want me to pick her up (though she doesn't like it for long now) I told myself today that I need to stop and think more often before another 17 months rushes by!
Anyone else missing their baby or stopping and thinking more about how fast time has gone?
Baby #2 is on the way!! PROVERBS 3:5-6
I miss the baby stage but this is such a fun age! I rather like the independance that she has and seeing her really become her own person with her own personality. Hopefully we'll have another little one soon!
I felt it with Sterling and Bryce but no so much with Isabelle. I think it is just all about perspective--even though her heart defects are in the "minor" category, we were all too aware that kids in her condition go downhill fast at any time. Every day, every month, every milestone is a celebration of the fact that she survived and to wish her backwards in time means to put us right back into dark days of uncertainty. She was such a happy baby (most of the time) but she also struggled so very much. I much prefer to see her as she is today, my little energizer bunny
I love this stage also - where Kynslee is more independent and we are able to do more together. I love hearing her talk and respond and have her own personality traits. But, it's hard to not think back and miss the days sometimes when I feel her kick inside me or cradling her when she was so tiny. I don't wish to go back in time at all, I just realized how fast time has flown and miss sometimes when she was a baby! But, I wouldn't give up the stage she is at right now at all!!!!
