Growing, Growing, Growing

In a little more than a week she'll be ten months old.
That means the one year mark is right  around the corner.

The other day Stephan said, "Don't you just want her to stay this tiny forever?"
My answer was a surprising, "No."

With Levi I would have said "YES!!!!!" But that has nothing to do with playing favorites. It's just that now I know what's coming (at least some of it). I know that there is this beautiful period of time when they just get exponentially cuter with every passing day. For Sophia it's only just beginning.

And, even beyond that period of unbearable adorableness, there's an uncharted world awaiting us. One where we get to watch these two incredible little ones come into their own. I'm kind of excited about that.

When Levi's first birthday was approaching It felt a little more bitter than sweet. I was excited to see him grow...of course...but I really just wanted to hold on to his tiny little self forever.

This time around though, I'm actually excited. Not that I want these next couple of months to speed up or anything. I'm all for time slowing itself down just a bit, but a complete halt? Nah.


  1. I know what you mean. My baby, who is going to be 2 next week, is just so amazingly cute! I love the stage he is in. It will be fun to see your baby grow into that stage too. :)

  2. nearly a year allready!?!??
    has it been that long, i do wish time would go by a bit slower, Kids make time go far too fast!

  3. I felt the same way about my first and second. :)


I'm so glad you're here!
